That's Life - May 30, 2018

It’s really hard to believe that Three Hills Cruise Weekend is upon us.

It all started in 1981 with a handful of vehicle enthusiasts cruising up and down Main Street. I mean, that’s what most of us did most of the time on a Friday and/or Saturday night. Heaven forbid if it was actually an organized event.

Well, brothers and sisters, the right people took that seedling and grew it to what it is today. Oh sure, the weather has to be good to make any outdoor show great. I mean, we’ve all seen what really, really bad weather can do to even the Calgary Stampede.

Cruise Weekend is our Calgary Stampede. It’s our “Greatest Show on Earth”, and it’s all happening June 1-3 in whatever weather we get dealt. It’ll be fine, just fine. Touch wood.

Remember to leave your pets at home, dress for the weather and be a true ambassador to Three Hills by showcasing our town to our many weekend guests as the wonderful place this is to play and stay.

Do everything you can to spruce up your property and go out of your way to be helpful in making our guests feel at home.

I think it’s extra special that Seniors Week 2018 kicks off on Friday, June 1, the first day of Cruise weekend. Now that’s entertainment.

Seniors Week is jam packed with activities right through to Friday, June 8. Check page 10 of the May 23 issue of The Capital for their calendar of events or check the Seniors Outreach website, for more information.

And while I’m talking about Seniors’ Week Let’s Talk Free Bowling on Wednesday, June 6 from 1:30 - 3:30 p.m. at Hillside Lanes for Seniors 65+. I mean, we’re talking free bowling, shoe rentals, coffee and treats all thanks to Trader’s Furniture. And don’t forget the Senior’s Week 2018 contest. Fill out a ticket at the five major Senior’s Week events. That includes the bus trip, annual general meeting, hymn sing, practical care network presentation and the county tournament. These tickets will be entered into draws for two tickets for the Ian Tyson/Corb Lund concert and parking at the Badlands Passion Play Site on Saturday, August 25, 2018.

The second prize is two tickets to the Canadian Badlands Passion Play for one performance between Friday, July 6 and Sunday, July 22, 2018. The winners will be drawn on Monday, June 11.

And whatever you do, don’t miss Mary Poppins, presented by the Three Hills Arts Academy. I’m hearing nothing but raves. As I write this the remaining shows are 90% sold out. Now that’s ... supercalifragilisticexpialidocious.

That’s Life.
