Watch out for students heading back to class

We hope everyone had a great Easter break, with family and friends. The weather was great all weekend for travelling.

The road bans are on now, so hopefully the roads dry up quickly, so everyone can get back to work.

Today is one special lady’s birthday in the Botha area. A big Happy Birthday goes out to Lorraine Hankins. Hope you have a great day, Lorraine.

Maybe spring is finally here, after the big winter storm we had the weekdays of April 20-22. Gophers have finally been spotted running in the fields, so that is a great sign. Spring is here, finally.

Bingo evening happens again next Tuesday, April 16, starting at 7:15 at the Botha Senior Centre. Come and join in the fun and excitement. The jackpot hasn’t been won for quite a while, so it’s building.

Children and staff are now back after their school spring break. School started up again Tuesday, so please watch out for the children of the area. Best wishes for the remainder of the school year.

Zumba classes are held every Tuesday at 7 p.m. and the Booty Bounce and Cardiovascular Hip-Hop class runs every Thursday evening starting at 7 o’clock at the Botha Hall. For more information or to find out when the next set of classes begins, phone Callie Turigan at 403-741-8308.

Quilting happens again on Monday April 8, starting at 9 a.m. So bring your quilting stuff with you, and join the women for a great day of fun and visiting.

On Friday, April 12, come out to the Botha Hall at 7:30 p.m. and dance to the music from the Country Gold North Band. There will be a pooled lunch served, so please bring buns/sandwiches or pastries with you to share.

For more information, call Doug or Bernadette Haustein at 403-742-3994.
