The Terry Fox run was a great success for the students again this year. A big thank you to everyone who join in and also for all the sponsorship that goes to the Terry Fox Society. The run started off with a free taco lunch for everyone that attended (staff, students, parents and the students siblings, which everyone enjoyed. Then after recess beginning at 1 pm. they watched the Terry Fox documentary, “Into the Wind” about the Terry Fox marathon of hope. This took place in the gym. After the film, everyone went outside for the run, which everyone participated in by being in the run or cheering all the runners on. The run was a course around the village and at 2:35 p.m. everyone meet back at the school. It was an exciting day and everyone had fun doing this.

What an exciting evening we had at the last bingo game which took place on Wednesday Oct. 27. While we were there, a gentleman won the loonie pot which was quite high. Congratulations to him and all the winners for that evening. Then back to the game we went and a lady’s phone which made it another exciting experience. Florence Walker of Stettler announced she was a great grandmother to two bouncing happy identical twin girls. Congratulations Great Grandma. This usually doesn’t happen on a bingo evening, so quite exciting for everyone. The next Bingo game will be Wednesday October 11, at the Senior Centre, so feel free to join in.

Picture day at the Botha School will be held on October 13, so please keep this in mind.

In closing I would like to wish everyone a great Thanksgiving weekend, have fun.
