Where is the Spring?

Spring has finally arrived according to the calendar, but according to Old Man Winter, he wasn’t going to give up so easily.

Spring has finally arrived according to the calendar, but according to Old Man Winter, he wasn’t going to give up so easily. Spring officially arrived on Thursday of last week, but it was windy, colder weather and snowy. (More snow in different places around Alberta compared to others, and this past Sunday it snowed again some) and it’s still cool out there. So come on Spring and show your face, everyone is getting tired of winter. Geese have been spotted around the country, so that’s a good sign.

Tomorrow come out to the Botha Hall at 7 p.m. for another important meeting for the Village. The BCC meeting is held then, and they are always looking for new members, so why not join them.

Then this coming Sunday, March 30, make sure you come out and dance to the music from the “Country Gem Band”. This will start at 1:30 p.m. and a fantastic way to spend a Sunday afternoon. The committee would appreciate it, if everyone brings either buns/sandwiches or dessert with you to share at the luncheon. If you have any questions or concerns about any of these dances please call Doug or Bernadette Haustein at 403-742-3994.

Quilting happens again starting at 9:30 a.m. the very next day Monday, March 31. These are held at the Senior Centre. So make sure you grab your quilting items, or come out even if you’re not a quilter for a visit. They would love to see you join them.

Would you like to get a free ham for your coming-up Easter feast, which is in April? Come out to the Senior Centre on Tuesday, April 1 (not an April Fool’s Joke) at 7:15 p.m. with your bingo dabbers. Everyone is more than welcome to join them, and who knows you could be walking out with a ham you just won, or some winnings as both the Loonie Pot and the Jackpot are both up still for grabs. Sounds good, so hope to see you there that evening.

The next seniors’ meeting will be held on Tuesday, April 8 starting at 12 noon, with a pot-luck luncheon and the meeting to follow. So please bring one of your favourite dishes with you to share at the pot luck.

Then the regular weekly activities keep going, starting with coffee every Wednesday morning at 10 a.m. with carpet bowling following at 1 p.m. that afternoon.

Then every Thursday is floor curling time starting at 1 p.m., everyone is invited to participate. Then on May 8, starting at 9 a.m. there will be a floor curling tournament. So please call Brenda at 403-742- 6241 to register your team. The deadline for registration will be Wednesday, April 30, so register as soon as possible.

I would like to wish my daughter and her husband (Angela and Jesse Kover) a happy anniversary on Monday, March 31. Congratulations to both of you.

If you know of any birthdays, anniversaries, baby announcements or other events please contact me.
