That's Life - November 29, 2017

Moonlight Madness is Friday, December 1, so I hope you get some sleep the night before so you can enjoy the late night shopping in Three Hills.

Check pages nine through 16, in this issue, for the Moonlight Madness specials. It’s always a good time.

The Capital’s Community Christmas Card has been a tradition for over three decades. By signing the cover page of our annual Christmas issue you are helping less fortunate families. Whether you pay the toonie to sign your name, the five dollars to list your immediate family, or make a sizeable donation, every penny from the campaign goes directly to the Three Hills Area Food Bank. I want to take a minute to thank the Three Hills business community for supporting my Children’s Event Funding Campaign. Thanks to the businesses, the children of Three Hills and area can enjoy the annual “Kid’s Carnival”, directly following the summer celebration Grand Parade and “Kid’s Night Out”, this year to be celebrated on Saturday, December 16. Kid’s Night Out is held at the Three Hills Community Centre on Saturday, December 16. Doors open at 6:30 pm and the fun continues to 8 pm. This year there will be a bouncy castle, glitter tattoos, pictures with Santa and Mrs. Claus (bring your camera), an amazing performance by Kyle Key - The Magician, hot dogs, pop, and candy bags. Servus Credit Union is the major sponsor for the entertainment for Kid’s Night Out and I sincerely thank them for that. I must also thank Mt. Olive Evangelical Free Church for the bouncy castle and Sandstone IDA Pharmacy for their generous candy bags. I hope to see you there.

Remember, check inside this issue for times, dates, and places of events as we get closer and closer to Christmas. The Three Hills Water Tower lights up, as does Anderson Park this weekend. Please be respectful of the many lights and decorating displays that dress-up our communities throughout the Christmas season. A lot of time, effort and money goes into these displays, for everyone’s enjoyment. And remember, if you are celebrating this, Christmas season, do not drink and drive. Call a friend, use a designated driver, or take advantage of a drive-home service. Play it safe, all year long.

That’s Life.
