Storm packs plenty of punch

Last Wednesday, we were hit with the rain we were hoping for, but unfortunately Mother Nature took us too seriously and hit us with a bad storm.

Rain and a large amount of hail came with it, doing same damage to some crops and gardens in different areas. It also brought a bad wind with it, which was not good. But, hopefully now, more sun and just a sprinkling of rain are on their way.

Botha’s next Bingo evening will be held on Tuesday, July 31, starting at 7:15. So bring your friends and Bingo dabbers and come out for one great evening of excitement. You could be the next big winner. The jackpot hasn’t gone for a while, so it’s yours for the taking.

In two weeks, church services will begin again, so where has this month gone?

On Thursday, Aug. 9, the first church service for this year is planned and services will continue through the month of August at 7 p.m. each week. Everyone is welcome to come on out and enjoy Rev. Susan Bowyer’s service.

In the meantime, we wish Rev. Bowyer a good summer break that still has a few weeks remaining.

Coffee is on every Wednesday, starting at 10 a.m., and organizers would love to see everyone attend. Coffee time is held at the Botha Senior Centre every Wednesday morning.

It’s hard to believe summer is not even half over and school supplies are already on sale at different locations. Where is the summer going? Before we know it, fall will be here again.

This week, the Botha playground program has restarted and will continue Aug. 3 for all children ages three to 12 years of age. It’s a great time for all. The playground program runs on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays.

With any questions or concerns, please contact Jamie Wahl at 403-742-5986 or email Jamie at gdwjdw@xplornet.com, or feel free to message her at the “Botha Playground Program” on Facebook.

The program sounds like a lot of fun, so all are invited to get involved with the Botha summer festivities.
