Nine-year-old Ethan Duncan and 12-year-old Joshua Page were November’s positive ticket recipients in Morinville. Positive Tickets are issued to youth 18 years of age and under. When an officer observes someone obeying the law, they issue that person a positive ticket which the recipient drops off at the Morinville RCMP detachment or at the town office for a chance to win a monthly draw of $100.00. The project is a partnership between the Morinville RCMP, Enforcement Services and Community Services. The Positive Ticketing Program focuses on finding and recognizing the positive things youth are doing in our community. This is a dynamic approach to crime prevention and increasing positive connections, while working with young citizens to reduce crime. – submitted Photo

Vanier lends a hand
École Georges P. Vanier School Principal Marlene Pelletier shows the donations from the school to Santa Store volunteer Linda Krauskopf, St. Jean Baptiste Church’s Father Ignacy Warius and Knights of Columbus members Henry Lamoureux and Fred Carlson. Pelletier said the school collected more than 155 gift bags, each having a tag for the appropriate age and gender of the child the gift are intended for. Lamoureux and Carlson had already collected items from Georges H. Primeau School, Notre Dame Elementary school, and Camilla School in Riviere Qui Barre. Dec. 16 was the cut-off date for donations, and Knights of Columbus volunteers were be busy over the weekend putting the hampers together. Hampers will be delivered to area families Dec. 19.
