Spring is officially over, summer is here

With summer solstice last Tuesday, June 20, the longest day of sunlight is past us.

Welcome to summer time! Spring has officially ended and summer is here. With this, we also received the longest amount of daylight that we will have in the year as the days will now slowly become shorter, as it gets dark earlier.

Don’t forget to head down to the Botha Hall this Sunday for the last Old Tyme Dance until fall. The Country Gentleman band will be the band for this event; come on out and dance to the music from this great band. The theme for this dance is Hawaiian, so please feel free to dress accordingly if you wish. The dance will start at 1:30 p.m. There is no age limit, so everyone can come and have some fun. The committee wants everyone who attends to bring with them either buns/sandwiches, dessert, or salads to share at the 5 p.m. luncheon. The first fall dance will be the last Sunday of the Sept., when they will be starting up again for another year. So please make sure you try and attend this Sunday, for one last time.

A big congratulations go out to Fran Clark and John Blonski for next Wednesday, June 28, when they will be celebrating their wedding anniversary. Congratulations you two, hope you both have a great day.

Bingo Night was last night so a big congratulations go out to all the winners. The next Bingo evening will be on July 5, starting at 7:15 p.m., doors open at 6:30 p.m. Bingo will continue throughout the summer months.

Today at 1 p.m. is Floor Curling, with the last one next Thursday, June 29, until after harvest, when they will be starting up again. So please join us in these last two games if you can.

Carpet Bowling will be this coming Wednesday at 1 p.m. and this will be the last one until after harvest season as well, and we are sure you wouldn’t want to miss out on this.

Coffee Hour is every Wednesday morning at 10 a.m and will continue throughout the summer months, so make sure you take a break from your busy schedules and come join your friends every Wednesday morning.

Boy, where did this month go? Time is going so fast compared to the winter months. Next weekend is the Canada Day weekend, which means another long weekend so hopefully everyone has something planned for this. We’re also hoping that the weather cooperates. We already have had too much rain this week with some heavy downfall, so here’s to wishing that was the end.

Have a great week everyone.
