Take time to reflect on Remembrance Day

A big thank-you to everyone who came out to the Botha Christmas Craft Show on Saturday and supported our Botha women.

A big thank-you to everyone who came out to the Botha Christmas Craft Show on Saturday and supported our Botha women. Everyone had a great time and got some Christmas shopping done.

Military Whist will be cancelled until further notice. It was previously advertised for Nov. 19, but unforeseen circumstances came up and the group decided to cancel the game until further notice.

This coming Sunday is Remembrance Day, so please buy your poppies now and support a great case. Please get out to a service nearest to you and remember our loved ones that were killed during the wars and who fought for our country.

There will not be a church service this Sunday as Rev. Susan Bowyer has other commitments. But church will resume the following Sunday (Nov. 18) at 11 a.m. All are invited to worship with them at that time.

Quilting will be held again this coming Monday, Nov. 12, at 9 a.m. at the Botha Senior Centre. Organizers would love to see more people attend, even those who haven’t quilted but would like to learn.

Botha residents wish Matthew Morris a very Happy Birthday for this Saturday. Hope you have a great day.

This Friday is another great old-time dance, starting at 7:30 p.m. and running until 11 p.m. The entertaining band for the evening will be the Gaetz Valley Minstrels. Please bring buns/sandwiches and or pastries to be shared at the lunch at 11 p.m. If you have any questions, please contact Doug or Bernadette Hausten at 403-742-3994.

The next Bingo evening is set for Tuesday, Nov. 20, at 7:15 p.m. So grab your Bingo dabbers and come out for a great night. The games are held at the Botha Senior Centre every second Tuesday evening.
