Old-time dance swings to forefront



Botha’s community wishes Justin Hankins a happy birthday for this coming Sunday. Hope you have a great day, Justin.

Don’t forget about the old-time dance Friday at 7:30 p.m. The Grassroots Band will entertain for the evening. It’s a pot-luck dance, so please contribute something and have some fun with your friends and neighbours.

Church services will be held at 1 p.m. Sunday for this month. Come out and enjoy a great service.

An evening of bingo is set for Tuesday, Oct. 25. Early Bird Bingo starts at 7:15 p.m. at the Senior Centre.

The weather is starting to get colder, and the days are getting shorter, so the Botha ball diamond will be closing soon. Gather a group together and phone Ken or Wendy at 403-8184 to reserve the diamond.

Don’t forget to visit the Senior Centre at 10 a.m. each Wednesday for a hot, refreshing cup of coffee. Carpet bowling begins at 1:30 p.m. each Wednesday at the Senior Centre.

All seniors are invited to their monthly meeting Nov. 7 at noon. It begins with a potluck meal, so please bring something with you to the Senior Centre.

Floor curling, a great exercise opportunity, is at the Senior Centre each Thursday at 7 p.m. Everyone is welcome to attend.

On Oct. 31, join the quilting group for a 9:30 a.m. meeting at the Senior Centre. The group meets on the second and last Monday of each month. Even if you’ve never quilted before, you’re invited to participate, as the others would love to teach you.

If you’re planning Christmas parties or get-togethers, Botha Hall is available for rental at reasonable prices. Phone Marsha Mailer at 403-742-2559 to reserve your spot.
