That's Life - November 22, 2023

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas in and all around Kneehill County.

The warm weather has allowed many of us to install our Christmas light displays and that really adds to instilling that Christmas spirit.

This Friday evening is Moonlight Madness, in Three Hills, once again. The annual Moonlight Farmer’s Market is bound to please shoppers with all sorts of baking and gift ideas. That runs at the Bethel Evangelical Church, Friday, Nov 24 from 4 pm to 9 pm and Saturday from 10 am to 4 pm.

Participating businesses will be open Friday until at least 9 pm. Check them out for great in-store specials.

The good times will roll right along Friday behind the Royal Bank with Santa and Mrs. Claus from 6 - 8:30 pm.

Take a seat around the firepit and enjoy hot chocolate, music and goodies.

Don’t miss the wagon rides pulled by Belgian Horses from Hammer Hill Stables. Three Hills Fire and Rescue will be on scene, with their flashing lights, Friday evening from 6 pm to 8 pm.

Be sure to bring your camera along and make sure you dress for the weather.

And, after you’ve taken in the downtown fun, how about cruising the town and taking in the Christmas lights. There are some dandy displays throughout the town.

Once again I would like to reach out to Three Hills Beautification for their magical touch on the Christmas season and a big thanks to all those who provide this great organization with cash donations enabling them to create our wonderful street decorations throughout the year.

I see our friends from ATCO Electric have again partnered with the Town of Three Hills to install our downtown Three Hills Christmas lights. Those in the know say we might even see a sprinkle of snow this week, just to add a little “White Christmas” to the festivities, but that remains to be seen.

The Winter Wonderland Gala and Fundraiser event, in Three Hills, has been sold out for some time. If you didn’t get tickets you can still support the event, in a big way, by donating items to the silent and/or live auction portion of the event. You can also purchase 50/50 raffle tickets for $20/each. Buy them now at Adam B. Young Insurance, IGA, Servus Credit Union or ATB Financial, or online via e-transfer to gala43hills@yahoo.com.

That’s Life.
