That's Life - May 26, 2021

Volunteers are needed to help plant and place the 66 flower barrels and 38 hanging baskets that are all part of the Three Hills Beautification Project.

It’s all happening on Saturday, May 29, at 10 am at Digger’s Greenhouse. Organizer Shirley Cullum tells me you only need to bring along your work gloves. Trucks and trailers will be provided.

If you can find the time to help this community project along, please call Shirley at 403-443-0982 or email

Cash donations, to help this year and in the future, can be taken to ATB Financial designated to Three Hills Beautification.

Last but not least, there will be a food truck on location at Digger’s. This event goes rain or shine so please dress accordingly.

It’s Farmer’s Market time again in Three Hills at the Three Hills Curling Rink. Beginning Tuesday, June 1st, the market operates from 10 am to 1 pm. There are new vendors and products along with return vendors. Due to ongoing COVID-19, restrictions apply such as, hand sanitizing, six foot physical distancing, mandatory mask wearing by all vendors and customers and one-way foot traffic.

Three Hills Farmers Market will operate every Tuesday until September 21 inclusive.

Exciting news is that our amazing Seniors Outreach Program Society has been chosen to co-host the provincial Seniors’ Week launch with the Hon. Josephine Pon, Alberta Minister of Seniors and Housing. Due to COVID-19 restrictions this launch will be a virtual event, beginning at 10am on Monday, June 7 and will stream throughout the province on a link placed on the Seniors and Housing website.

Although Seniors’ Week will be different from those in the past at least there will be a few virtual activities. I’ll have a few more details for you next week.

The Tickle Trunk, on Main Street, Three Hills, is in its final days of clearing out. The closure of the Tickle Trunk is yet another statistic of the COVID-19 pandemic. Everything must go as the building has been sold. If there was anyone who brought Hollywood a little closer to Three Hills, it was Darryl and Vickie. We wish you all the best and thank you for your service to the community.

That’s Life.
