That's Life - July 3, 2019

Don’t forget to mark your calendars for the Three Hills Summer Celebration on July 13, 2019.

As always there will be a three-day Slo-Pitch tournament, Saturday morning Breakfast, Parade, lunch at the Knox United Church following the 11 am Parade and the Annual Kid’s Carnival Saturday from 1 pm to 3 pm at Anderson Park, followed by free swimming from 3 pm to 5 pm.

I am looking for 12 workers, aged 13 to 17, to help with the Carnival. I’ll need you at the park by 12:30 pm and you will finish following clean-up at about 3:30 pm. The job pays $45. Only the first 12 callers will be accepted. Call 403-443-5133 to apply.

Tickets are on sale now for the World Famous RCMP Musical Ride that is coming to Three Hills on Tuesday, July 23. Tickets are $15 per seat or $10 for standing room only.

Now, the Musical Ride is a must see. There is a whole lot more on offer. Your ticket gets you into the Safety Fair. Gates open at 2 pm and the fair operates until 5 pm. The actual ride is at 6:30 pm.

At the Safety Fair you will be able to meet members of the RCMP, County Peace officers, Firefighters and EMS (Ambulance). There will be face painting, police dogs and a food truck on location at the Three Hills Public School grounds.

Get your tickets now at the Three Hills RCMP detachment, Three Hills Motor Products, Little Bird Bakery or Country Fresh Cleaners. In Trochu, get your tickets at Balkwill’s Pharmacy and Knievel Insurance. In Elnora, get your tickets at Jewell’s Grocery. In Delburne, get your tickets at Oops Fresh Markets or the Delburne Village Office and in Linden, tickets are on sale at AG Foods and High Seas Coffee Company.

I hope that everyone had a wonderful Canada Day long weekend. Here’s hoping the sun shines down on our outdoor celebrations, big or small, and those summer hailstorms stay away. Crops in the area are looking magnificent. Rainfall for the month of June is the best it has been for almost 20 years. The southern part of the County was somewhat drier than the north, but recent moisture has put them in good shape as well.

If you plan on taking in the Calgary Stampede, make sure you are prepared for quick changes in our Alberta weather. It can get awful cold and awful wet awful fast. And if you do get cold and wet, remember the words of Canadian Country Music Legend Ian Tyson, “Cowboys don’t cry, aw, maybe just a little bit”.

That’s Life.
