This coming Friday, all students will be traveling to the Alliance Ski Hill for their first day of skiing lessons of this year. With the snow we received last weekend, the hill should be ready to have fun on. So hopefully, the weather will co-operate and it wouldn’t be too cold to go skiing in.

On Monday, Feb. 2 is Groundhog Day. So will the Groundhog going to see his shadow this year or not? Or is Old Man Winter going to roar up its hind legs and roar again several times before winter is over. It’s been a pretty nice winter so far this time compared to the last several years, so who knows, only time will tell.

A belated birthday wish goes out to Christine Wedrick, who celebrated her day on Monday, Jan. 26. Hope you had a fantastic day Christine.

Quilting day takes place at the Botha Seniors’ Centre again this coming Monday, Feb. 9, starting at 9:30 a.m. Even if you have never quilted before but are interested in this craft, please attend as they would love to teach you. The club does some beautiful work, and would love to pass on their skills, so please attend.

With deepest sympathy, we would like to send our thoughts and prayers out to the family of Lorna Davies, who passed away suddenly last Sunday, Jan. 25, at the age of 48 years. Mourning her passing is her husband Steve, their family, her Mother (Rosemary Crowe) and several other relatives and friends. Lorna will be truly missed around our little community.

Bingo evening happens again the evening of Tuesday, Feb. 17, starting at 7:15 p.m. The jackpot and loonie pot are up for grabs, so make sure you come out that evening, who knows you could be the next big winner taking it home with you. Congratulations go out to the winners who won at the last bingo on Feb. 3.

We are also looking for more Bingo callers, so if interested please contact Brenda Klatt at 403-742-6241 please. If you have never done it before but are willing to try, Brenda is willing to help anyone learn, so please contact her.

For anyone celebrating their birthdays, anniversaries etc. for the month of Feb, I hope everyone has a fantastic day.
