County residents Jim and Jan Baker are bringing Summer Music in the Park events back to Morinville starting July 11. The shows will be held outdoors bi-weekly on Tuesdays at St. Jean Baptiste Church by the clock tower. The shows run from 7 p.m. until 8:30 p.m. and while admission is free, they will be taking items for the Morinville Food Bank and cash donations for the Jessica Martel Memorial Foundation.
In February, Morinville residents gathered at the Morinville Community Cultural Centre to take part in the Canada 150 Mosaic mural, a national project celebrating Canada’s 150th Birthday. On Canada Day, the multi-tile and multi-artist project was revealed to hundreds of attendees.
Nestled in the back of St. Jean Baptiste Park is the Musée Morinville Museum, home to the community’s rich cultural heritage and history. Museum staff are pretty excited these days, but it’s not necessarily about any new exhibits coming to the museum; it’s because the museum has just received some important provincial recognition.
Twinkle Twinkle Little Star will mix with pop songs and heavy metal this weekend as Smith Music hosts their annual student concert series. Far from a recital, the local music school has always tried to mix the acts into a show worthy of the audiences attending but also the hard work students have put in over the year.
