With the ghost and goblins gone and the left over candy tempting us all to pack on some winter fat, it’s time to burn some energy this week with a number of things going on in Morinville and area.
RBC hits a milestone
Branch Manager Sara Townsend and her staff at the Morinville RBC will be celebrating 100 years of banking in Morinville Monday.
The event runs at the branch from 11 a.m. until 2 p.m. All are invited to join in the fun, festivities and refreshments.
Apples and art
The Morinville Seniors Rendez-Vous Centre in Morinville is the place to be this weekend for lovers of apples, art and crafts.
The annual craft and art sale, accompanied by coffee, tea, and apple desserts, takes place Nov. 6 and 7 from noon until 5 p.m., and is sponsored by the Rendezvous Club and the Morinville Art Club.
The Morinville Seniors Rendez-Vous Centre is located at 9913 -104 Street.
A pet is great to come home to
The Morinville Veterinary Clinic is looking to Morinville and area residents to adopt a number of animals from the clinic’s stray rescue program. Because a picture is worth a thousand words, we’ll let these critters speak for themselves.
For adoption information, contact the Morinville Veterinary clinic at 9804-90 Avenue or call 780-939-3133.
The great unveiling
Morinville’s new $1.2 million fire truck is set to arrive this Saturday. The Morinville Fire Department is planning a special event to put the new equipment in service. The event is set to take place at the department Nov. 6 between 1:45 and 2 p.m. The public is welcome to attend.
Clocks back – batteries in
And speaking of the fire department, Fire Chief Ron Cust recommends that people put fresh batteries in their smoke detectors Sunday night when they turn the clocks back. Daylight savings time takes effect Nov. 7.
