That's Life - November 28, 2018

I hope to see you this Friday night taking advantage of the savings and selection as Three Hills businesses offer shopping until 11 pm.

Check the ads in this issue for special offers throughout the evening. Also, see the Moonlight Christmas Market details on page 21 of the Classified section.

The Capital and Traders Furniture are partnering with the Three Hills Area Food Bank in hosting the “Fill The Van - Help The Food Bank” event this Friday night in the TD Canada Trust parking lot.

The Traders Furniture Van will be on location from 6-9 pm, Friday, Nov. 30. Volunteers will be on hand to accept your Food Bank donations.

When you donate to the Food Bank, you will receive a ticket to win one of 25 Christmas turkeys.

Five and ten dollar pre-bagged hampers will be available if you don’t want to carry a box of non-perishable food items downtown.

It’s a big van and we would really like to fill it up and stock those Food Bank shelves.

In this week’s issue, you will find a Christmas Hamper Application that applies to Acme (includes Sunnyslope and Swalwell), Linden and Three Hills. Please check the application deadlines that apply to each community. Trochu and surrounding residents are asked to call the Town of Trochu at 403-442-3085 in regard to a Christmas Hamper.

This week is the final printing of the Christmas Hamper Application.

The Capital Community Christmas Card is beginning to fill up. Drop by the office of The Capital at 411 Main Street, Three Hills and sign today. The cost is three dollars for an individual name or five dollars for a couple or immediate family. All funds generated by the Community Christmas Card goes directly to the Three Hills Area Food Bank.

Be sure you take in “Yes, Virginia, There is a Santa Claus” at the Three Hills Arts Academy this Thursday through Sunday. See the display ad on page 10 for all the details.

Be sure to check The Capital each week for festive events of all kinds.

We would also like to thank our many loyal readers for being patient during the recent postal strike disruptions. Hopefully, things are back to normal.

Remember! There are only three issues of The Capital until Christmas. I haven’t even had the time to rake my leaves. Oh well, it looks like Mother Nature has got things covered...literally.

That’s Life.
