Senior Centre a hub of Botha activity



Another great holiday is upon us. Thanksgiving Day is this coming Monday, so hopefully you’re able to spend the weekend with family and friends.

Hazel and Murray Davidson would like to wish Kristen Davidson a happy birthday for Sunday (Oct. 9).

As harvest winds down, so goes the fine weather. This past Saturday was quite chilly and frosty, so it’s beginning to feel like fall now.

Congratulations to the big jackpot winner from last Tuesday’s bingo. Come out for another great evening  of bingo this Tuesday, beginning at 7:15 p.m. at the Senior Centre.

The Botha Hall has a big night planned for Friday, Oct. 14. The Grassroots Band will entertain at an old-time dance. Bring your favourite goodies for a pot-luck lunch. The dance begins at 7:30.

The Senior Centre gang welcomes everyone to join friends and neighbours for refreshing coffee each Wednesday at 10 a.m. at the centre. In the afternoon, turn toward exercise, with carpet bowling starting at 1:30 p.m.

On Thursday evenings, floor curling is another great form of exercise. It begins at 7 p.m. in the Senior Centre.

Rev. Susan Bowyer invites everyone to join church services at 1 p.m. each Sunday. Join the congregation and give God praise for the great harvest weather.

In keeping with Thanksgiving, our pilgrims gave thanks for their harvest, and so should we. Best wishes for a great Thanksgiving, and plenty of tasty turkey.
