Wednesday’s VIP luncheon saw Owners Chat and Suki Sangha, their son Jovan, and staff welcome Morinville and Sturgeon County councillors, school staff, chamber members, Legion members, police and fire department personnel and other dignitaries coming out for lunch and an opportunity to try out the new restaurant and to have a look at Morinville’s newest business.
