Flea markets are a wonderful thing and you can help grow the Saturday Flea Markets in Three Hills.
Simply set up at the Catholic Church parking lot from 10 am to 3 pm. People love to shop and browse so it's up to you to "give them a reason", to come downtown.
The weekly Farmer's Market is a prime example of what can happen when vendors gather in one spot, on a regular basis. Sure, the Farmer's Market wasn't always the success it is now. It has to take root. It has to become a destination. It has to become a habit.
If you're selling fruit, fresh produce, having a garage sale or you're a vendor of products under a home occupation license, come on down. It's free.
The first Flea Market saw Discovery Toys, a large garage sale, a smaller garage sale, and some of Paula Spurr's fine guitar playing and singing. Let's see that parking lot full to overflowing. There is no pre-registration. There is no fee. Your profits are your's to keep. Let's build on it. The Saturday Flea Markets will be held every Saturday throughout August and September. It is open to any vendor within Kneehill County. Please be considerate of others by using your space effectively.
Think Pink
Wild Pink Yonder's "Ride For The Cure" is coming to Acme Tuesday, August 24; Three Hills, Wednesday, August 25; and Trochu, August 26.
These three communities, within Kneehill County, are pink-ifying themselves and fundraising to help find a cure for breast cancer.
They will be judged, half on how pink the community is and half on the amount of funds raised.
Acme is having a fundraising supper at the Acme Community Center. They're looking for donations of salads, mild chili and/or desserts. Call the Village Office if you can help. "Dusty Dee" will entertain. The next morning, there will be a Fundraiser Breakfast from 7 am to 8 am.
The ride arrives in Three Hills at about 3 pm on August 25th. A parade of horses will head up Main Street at 3:30 pm. The Prairie Campus Courtyard will be set out in a carnival atmosphere with games, entertainment, facepainting and a petting zoo. The courtyard opens at 4:30 pm. There will be a hamburger barbeque at 6 pm. Burgers, pink lemonade and ice cream cones will be served by donation. Chilled watermelon will be sold. A pancake and sausage breakfast will be served at Chateau - Three Hills from 8 am to 10 am on the morning of Thursday, August 26. The breakfast is by donation. Then it's off to Trochu for a gala Dinner and Dance and Silent Auction on the evening of Thursday, August 26. Music is by the Frere's with tickets available at $20 per person, $50 for a family of four. Children six and under are free.
A donation made to Breast Cancer Research will have the Trochu organizing committee dye your garments pink (i.e. hats, T-shirts, etc.). This takes place on August 21.
On August 23, Angel Tags will be sold for $10 each in front of the Trochu Museum. You can also call Cheryl at 403-755-1554 to purchase your tag. All proceeds will go directly to the Wild Pink Yonder Breast Cancer Research Fund. Additional fundraising activities will take place throughout the community.
Anyone interested in participating in Trochu's 4 pm parade is asked to contact the Town of Trochu at 442-3085. Think Pink.
