Tonight is Bingo night at the Botha Seniors’ Centre starting at 7:15 p.m. Come on out and try your luck out.

Here is something to mark on your calendar, Sunday, Nov. 29, make sure you come out to Botha Hall at 2 p.m. and dance to the music from the ” Old Thyme Aires Band”. There is no age limit on these dances so everyone can come out and enjoy the fun. Also at these dances, they are asking everyone to bring with them either buns/sandwiches, salads or dessert to share at their pooled luncheon. This dance will be the Christmas theme, so please feel free to wear something red or green in color.

This coming Friday, Oct. 30, come on out to the Botha Hall for a fun filled Halloween event. This will be donated by the Botha Community Centre. All proceeds will go to help out Jace Thorsteinson and his family in their time of need. Jace unfortunately was seriously hurt in a rodeo accident just before school started. So this event will be a great fundraiser to help this family out. Tickets for this event can be purchased at the hall this evening. So make sure you come out for the fun. There will be a trick or treat station for kids, games and prizes, and DJ Services have been donated by the wonderful Lori Blake, who is fantastic.

That evening also will be a silent auction held, so you won’t want to miss out in the great time that evening. If you know if anyone that would like to donate any item(s) to this cause for the auction please contact Kelsey at 403-741-6517 or Dana at 403-741-9216 or bring them to the hall that evening. A bar will also be held for any legal age attendants so they can have a drink or two. So please do not miss out this important event.

Next Saturday, Nov. 7, starting at 9 a.m. until 2 p.m. will be the Botha Christmas Craft Show. So make sure you come on out to this. There are great items here and a person can start some of their early Christmas shopping. If you would like more information on this please call Christine Wedrick at 403-741-7503.

Also all students at the Botha School will be holding their Halloween parties this coming Friday, so make sure all parents send your child’s Halloween outfits with your child that day.

This Saturday is Halloween, so please watch out for all our little creatures running around wild that evening. This is a fun evening for all children, so please drive carefully and let them have their fun.

The following day Nov. 1 is the first opening for all big game hunters, so hopefully all hunters out their get all their game they are drawn for. Happy hunting, everyone.

Nov. 2 is the time for the next very important monthly seniors’ meeting starting at 12 noon, and they are hoping all seniors can attend.

This starts out with a potluck luncheon, so please bring something to share with you. The meeting follows directly after the potluck and you do not want to miss out.
