Talk about a cold week, this past week with Old-Man Winter hitting us with all the cold temperatures and cold winds to go with it. Hopefully soon it will warm up some, and the hunters can enjoy the rest of the time they have for hunting season.
Today, Nov. 19, there will be a BCC meeting and the committee wishes everyone to be there. These are important meetings and they would like everyone to attend.
In two weeks (Nov. 30) will be the Old-Time Dance Club Dance again and this one will be their Christmas Dance. They will be serving turkey this time, so they would like everyone to bring their buns, salad, some Christmas baking etc. to share at their luncheon that afternoon with everyone.
For this special event, the “Old Tyme Aires Band” will be the entertaining band for that afternoon. These dances start at 1:30 p.m. and everyone regardless of age is invited.
The evening of Nov. 25, join the group at the Botha Seniors’ Centre for one fun filled evening. It’s Bingo time again and the balls start rolling at 7:15 p.m. sharp. Neither the jackpot nor the loonie pot has been won for quite some time, so who knows, you could be the lucky one taking one or both of you home that evening.
Monday, Nov. 24, is quilting day starting at 9:30 a.m., so make sure you come on out and join them that morning.
Thursday afternoons starting at 1 p.m. come out and join in a game of floor curling, it’s a fun game and everyone seems to enjoy themselves at it.
Then, Thursday Nov. 27, come to the village office at 7 p.m. and attend a very important meeting. Everyone is invited to all these meetings which are held every last Thursday evenings of each month.
Hey, on Wednesday mornings, why not come out of the cold and winter like conditions and join the group at the seniors’ centre at 10 a.m. for a great visit and relaxing time with your friends and neighbours. The coffee pot is always on then, and they would love to see everyone attend.
Talking about Wednesdays, come back to the seniors’ centre again at 1 p.m. and join in a game of carpet bowling. They would love to see everyone there.
The next seniors’ meeting will be Jan.5, starting at 12 noon with a pot luck luncheon. There will be no meeting in December so they would like to wish everyone the very best of the festive season, and hope to see everyone at the meeting in January.
With winter temperatures and winter-like conditions hitting us now, please parents remember to send all your child’s winter wear to school daily with them, such as mitts, toques, boots etc. so at recesses they can go out and have fun when the weather is reasonable and not storming too hard.
The schools around, plus Botha school, are now collecting for the Christmas Child Program, which will be send out shortly to children in different parts of the world that won’t have Christmas without your help. Please put items in a shoe box and send them to school with your child or drop them off at the school, and they will make sure they get shipped out from there.
Every bit is appreciated and a big thank you goes out to you in advanced for helping out to this special cause.
