A Night to Remember
Friday night the Community Cultural Center came alive with stories from the past. The event “Streets and Sidewalks” featured a selection of fourteen short performances high lighting events from Morinville’s past. A case of where “something old” is still the best there is, the audience had a few laughs at some of the memories and stories that came flooding back. The play was intended to record and relate stories of the residents, and a few of them were interviewed in May of this year. Some who shared their past included Lil Boddez, Art and Henry Chalifoux, Art Krauskopf, Bert Ouellette, Charles and Cecila Chevalier, Oneil and Simone Chevalier, Jay and Wendy Enright, Mary Hittinger, Sheila Houle Carol Kaup and assistance of Dan Cournoyer.
The skits had a way of making one look back with a few giggles. Who can forget about the party line when on the phone? The number of short or long rings would indicate who the call was for and of course someone could be listening in. Another skit was driving in Morinville and hitting the monument that used to be at the four way stop near Sobeys. Many remembered that one. Hockey and Morinville have always been synonymous with each other and the fun of Frontier Daze. Produced and directed by Jacqueline Russell along with Leda Davies, Joe Fowler, Heather Faulk, Jeremy Park and Alynn Trottier they captured some classic moments in time. Sponsored by The friends of the Morinville Library Society they also had their new promotional items for sale and an auction for the 1st and 100th numbered gold plated bookmark. Mingling with the crowd included snacks and refreshments and reminiscing.
