Reading Time: 1 minute

The Terracotta Warrior that used to stand in the entrance way of the Town Building was moved Wednesday morning to the Morinville & District Chamber of Commerce new location at #102 -10507100 Avenue.

The Terracotta Warrior is important to the Chamber as it was gifted to Chamber Manager Dianne Mineault and to the Morinville & District Chamber of Commerce by Leo Lui, President of the Citslinc China Tours in 2016. The Chamber has made several Chamber trips to China.

The 600-pound statue was donated to the Town of Morinville by the Chamber in memory of Chamber Director and long-time Morinville volunteer Keith Norris (1944-2016).

      We asked the chief.

      “Fire Department had a call Oct. 16 to investigate a smoke smell at Notre Dame Elementary. Upon further investigation it was found to be triggered by a furnace unit which was inspected and working efficiently shortly thereafter. The staff and children of ND did extremely well with evacuation protocols, etc.. (It was ironic as we had did Fire Drills there a couple hours prior!). “
