That's Life May 25, 2011

I have been asked to extend sincere thanks to the people of Three Hills for the generousity shown to the people of Slave Lake, Alberta.
I'm sure communities throughout Kneehill County have shown tremendous support as well.
Today, Wednesday, May 25 the Three Hills and District Chamber of Commerce is hosting the Amazing John Kaplan Magic Show. The show goes in the Three Hills Curling Rink at 7 pm. Children 12 and under get in free with an adult. Student admission is $5 (13 years to 17 years). Adult admission is $10.
John presents a show that will entertain all ages. I have worked with John on many occasions and have been a spokesperson on his website for many years.
All of the proceeds from this show will go to the Red Cross to assist the Slave Lake Fire Victims.
The Town of Three Hills invites everyone in the area to drop off a cash donation to the Slave Lake Relief Fund at the Town Office. You will receive an official Tax Receipt for donations of $10 or more. The town will match contributions totalling up to $10,000.
Another fundraiser for Slave Lake is the 2011 Three Hills and District Chamber of Commerce Golf Tournament. The Tournament goes Wednesday, June 15, 2011 with a shotgun start at 4 pm. It's a Texas Scramble with nine holes of golf, steak supper and prizes for $50 per person. The steak supper only is $18 per person. Enter as an individual, a couple or as a team of four. To enter, please contact Norm Campion at the Town Office at 403-443-5822 or email ncampion@threehills. ca
As a matter of fact, I'm playing in tournaments on June 14, 15 and 17. That's as many games as I usually play in a year. I might become a professional Texas Scramble Golfer. Your team only has to use one of your drives and then you can be the worst golfer ever. I can do that. And when you're done being a terrible golfer, they feed you steak and give your prizes. I don't think it gets much better than that.
We have received notice that there will be no postal strike action this week. Negotiations continued through the long weekend, and both sides have indicated their commitment to reach a settlement. Canada Post is expected to respond to a global offer presented by the Canadian Union of Postal Workers on May 22, covering several areas including job security, wages and benefits, health, safety and staffing.
Remember that if a strike does happen, Three Hills subscribers simply come into our office at 411 Main Street and pick up a paper. Trochu, Huxley, Wimborne, Torrington, Linden, Acme and Carbon readers will not be affected. Swalwell customers will have to come to our Three Hills office as well. We'll soon see what happens.
That's Life.
