Wonderful warm weather spells a productive harvest

.

LOUISE BELLAIR

Botha Booster

Hazel and Murray Davidson would like to wish Murray’s daughter (Kristen Davidson) a happy belated birthday for her Sept. 9 milestone. They also wish their son and daughter-in-law (Dustin and Miranda) a happy second anniversary (Sept. 12).

I would like to wish my son, David Bellair, a happy birthday yesterday (Sept. 13). Hopefully, you had a great one, son.

Just a reminder about a special date — every second Tuesday, starting at 7:15 p.m., is bingo night in Botha. The next bingo night is Sept. 27.

The next old-time dance will be held Sunday, Sept. 25, starting at 1:30 p.m. This is a pot-luck meal, so please bring a hot/cold dish that you would like to share. The entertainment will be the Badlanders 11. Enjoy their music and a great afternoon.

The weather has been gorgeous lately, and harvest is well on its way. So hopefully, the warm weather continues until all the harvest has been completed.

Wednesday mornings are coffee hour at the Botha Senior Centre, starting at 10 a.m. Everyone is invited to stop by, even if it’s a busy time of year. They would love to have everyone come out for coffee.

Church services continue every Thursday at 7 p.m., with Rev. Susan Bowyer officiating. The congregation invites everyone to come out and worship with them.

The enumerators are still going around to get names and locations for upcoming elections. Make sure that you are not missed.

The rates for hall rentals are reasonable, and the hall can hold a large crowd, so book a spot now for your special occasion. Phone Marsha Mailer at 403-742-2559 to reserve a date.
