BOTHA BOOSTER — Welcome to the month of March, and as with it comes Daylight Saving Time this coming Sunday, March 12, make sure to turn your clocks ahead one hour before going to bed.

On Monday, March 13, please join us at the Seniors’ Centre at 9:30 a.m. for another day of quilting with the group.

Wednesdays are always busy at the Seniors’ Centre. Every morning at 10 a.m is Coffee Hour so make sure you come out for some great conversation over a cup or two of fresh coffee with your friends. At 1 p.m. is carpet bowling, so come on out and join in the game. We would love to see everyone participate. And then in the evening is bingo, which is always so fun. Come on out this Wednesday, March 15 at 6:30 p.m. to the Seniors’ Centre for some fun-filled time with friends and community people. Bingos are held every second Wednesday so make sure you mark this on your calendars. Game starts at 7:15 p.m., who knows you could be one of the lucky winners for the evening.

Every Thursday afternoon at 1 p.m is floor curling, so come and join in the game. It’s a lot of fun and great exercise. Everyone is welcome, so come and give a shot, you might end up winning and rediscover some new bowling skills.

On Monday, March 20 at 1 p.m. join your friends at the Seniors’ Centre for a friendly game of cards. A game of cards is always exciting, so make sure you come along with your friends.

If you are planning on heading to the ice arena please phone down there first to see if the arena is open for skating. With warmer weather on the horizon and the first day of spring being March 20, make sure you phone first.

The last Sunday of March is the Old Tyme Dance Club with the Easter-themed dance.
