Rocket challenge is on in Botha

The next Old Tyme Dance will be held on April 29 starting at 1:30 p.m.

The April monthly challenge is here now. This month is rockets/stomp rocket making. The rules for this one are as follows: Rockets must be at least eight inches long and can be made out of anything. They must, however, have its own launching system. It has to use any launch system just as long as it does not require ignition by flame. The best part about this is it can be sent off outside, so there is no height limit on how high it needs to go. These rockets are due on April 26 so come on out and see all our rockets and watch them fly.

Bingo hours have changed from 7:15 p.m. to 7 p.m. every second Wednesday evening so please take note of this as this has recently changed.

Quilting day will be held on April 30, starting at 9:30 a.m., so come on out and join this group in a great craft.

April 10 was the Grade 6 -10 orientation at Wm. E. Hay School, so everyone involved hopefully attended. If you have any updates on any of these meetings please contact me so we can get it in our column.

However, every Wednesday morning at 10 a.m. the coffee group would love you to join them at the senior centre. Everyone needs a break from their busy schedules, so they would love to see you join them that morning for a hot fresh cup of coffee and great friendship.

Hopefully everyone enjoyed the St. Patricks dance, which was held the last Sunday of March. The next Old Tyme Dance will be held on April 29 starting at 1:30 p.m. This one will be a western scene so dress accordingly if you like. The East West Connection band will be the entertainment group for that afternoon, so make sure you add this to your calendars and come on out for a great time.

April 27 is professional day at the school, so please keep this in mind.

Floor curling is held every Thursday afternoon at 1 p.m. so come on out and join in the game.

On April 12 is the registration day for playschool, so hopefully all parents with children ages three to five, were able to make it that day. If not please call the school at 403-742-5187 and get your child registered for this upcoming year.

Also on April 12, the Botha Rhymes program started up again and will continue every Thursday morning. This is a program that helps students gain literacy and school readiness skills. This program is also free to attend, so all children from infant to six years of age, are very welcome to attend. We hope for a great turnout and this is very useful for all children regardless of age.
