That's Life - May 3, 2017

My wife and I had the pleasure and privilege of attending Graduation at Prairie on Saturday. It’s always exciting to see the smiles and even the tears as the students experience this chapter in their lives. Prairie Bible Institute celebrates its 95th Anniversary this year. And who was the wise guy who said it would never work? Congratulations to the 124 students in the Class of 2017. And for those of you who say, “There were not 124 students on the platform,” I say, “You’re right.” Some of the grads couldn’t attend the ceremony.
That takes me back to the 1965 graduation at the Three Hills School. Back then graduation exercises were held in September. My sister Beverly had already shipped out to Halifax for training in the Navy.
My father took to the stage to accept her diploma. When presenting the diploma, Vice Principal Evelyn Mattson said, “My Beverly, how you have changed.”
Next on our list of graduation exercises is Three Hills School on Saturday, May 20 and then Prairie Christian Academy on Wednesday, June 28.
The Capital will publish our annual Kneehill Graduation Guide on Wednesday, June 14. This special section honours all high school graduates throughout Kneehill County.
We are one week away from “One Enchanted Evening”. Wednesday, May 10, the doors of the Three Hills Curling Rink open at 5:30 pm. You will need a ticket to get in so drop by The Capital office at 411 Main Street, Three Hills, and I will make sure you get what you need.
This evening has been created to support Seniors Outreach. Every cent, generated from this evening, goes directly to this amazing organization.
This is going to be a fun, relaxed event. And please, don’t worry if you are a single person wishing to attend but you don’t want to sit alone, we will seat you with others with the same objective and that is to support Seniors Outreach and all of the wonderful services they provide to the seniors within Kneehill County. I hope to see you there.
That’s Life.
