Garage sale beats expectations

Dale Dinsmore and Linda Ferguson of Pleasant Homes pose with some of the garage sale items that were available in their Fourth Annual Charity Garage Sale Friday afternoon. The two-day event brought in $2,700 for the Morinville Food Bank Society, a number that will be matched by Pleasant Homes, bringing the total donation to $5,400.

An Elvis Halloween

People might not have been surprised to see a tall man dressed as Elvis walk into the Villeneuve Hall Saturday night. It was, after all, a Halloween dance. But when the Elvis lookalike took to the stage with the Satellites to sing a few tunes, people realized there was more to Morinville’s Rick Johnsen than his sideburns and rhinestone. Johnsen, a local Elvis tribute Artist, was the Satellites special guest Saturday night. Johnsen has performed a number of gigs locally and participated in an Elvis Tribute Artist contest in British Columbia in the summer of 2009. – Submitted Photo.
