Two quilting sessions this month

Congratulations to Lorraine and John Hankins, hope you two have a fantastic one.

BOTHA BOOSTER — One special couple from our little community is celebrating their wedding anniversary tomorrow. Congratulations to Lorraine and John Hankins, hope you two have a fantastic one.

It’s hard to believe we’re into the month of June already, with some pleasant weather. So this is the time that the groups will be winding up until fall. On June 25, starting at 1:30 p.m. is the last Old Tyme Dance at the Botha Hall. The Country Gentleman Band will be the entertaining band that afternoon, so you will not want to miss out. The theme for this dance is Hawaiian, so wear something bright and beach-related if you like.

The seniors’ meeting will be held on Monday, June 5, starting at noon sharp. The meeting starts out with a potluck luncheon, so please bring something to share. The meeting follows right after the luncheon. At this meeting make sure you ask if they continue through the summer months. Hopefully all seniors will be able to attend this meeting.

Bingo evening will take place again on Wednesday, June 7, starting at 7:15 p.m., doors open at 6:30 p.m. Bingo continues throughout the summer months, every second Wednesday evening at the same time.

Quilting Day is on Monday, June 12, starting at 9:30 a.m. at the Senior Centre, so they are starting to gather up their unfinished ends, as they close things down until after harvest. They will be holding two quilting days this month, the next being on June 26, so everyone can get done what they have started, so make sure you attend both sessions.

Card playing day is on Friday, June 19, starting at 1 p.m., so come and join your friends in this game.

It sure has been busy at the school here in Botha as they are winding down this school year. With final exams coming up real soon, finishing up loose ends, swimming lessons, ball games, track meets etc. As summer holidays will start very soon, good luck to all the students and staff getting ready for all the hard work they will be facing this coming month.

This past weekend was exciting, with the Grade 12 graduation on Saturday, May 27.

We had great weather for a change. So congratulations to all of you, for all the hard work you have put in over the years to achieve where you are now; and we would like to wish you all the very best as you follow your dreams.
