Merry Christmas from Morinville News will be taking advantage of what is traditionally a slow news week between Christmas and New Year’s to take a bit of a break. We will resume our daily news coverage Jan. 3.

Our offices will be closed Dec. 22 to Jan. 2 inclusive.

While we will be taking a break to recharge our batteries for the new year, our print edition does not sleep. Readers will be able to pick up our next issue of Monday Morning News Dec. 27 and please be sure to grab our annual Year in Review issue, which comes out Jan. 3.

We would like to thank our readers and advertisers for their support in 2011 and wish you all the Merriest of Christmases and the happiest of New Years.

Stephen Dafoe,
Editor, Monday Morning News

  2. Thank you all at Morinville News for what you bring to the community. Merry Christmas and the very best of the New Year. I also would like to include the following quote from Jonathan Lockwood Huie, Author, Lover of Life,and “The Philosopher of Happiness.

    “Recall a recent time when someone was strongly critical
    of your opinions (perhaps your political or religious beliefs).
    Now, put yourself in their shoes – with compassion.
    Try to understand and appreciate their point-of-view –
    not to change your own opinions,
    but to celebrate all our human differences – in peace.”
    – Jonathan Lockwood Huie

  9. Stephen,

    I look forward to reading your articles, as well as your publication’s balanced presentation of residents’ opinions on matters that are important to the people of Morinville. To me, the Morinville News has been a valuable addition to the fabric of the town. I have learned more about where I live and the people who live here this past year than in the previous ten years combined.

    I hope you and your family enjoy a well-deserved break and I look forward to what the New Year will bring. Keep up the great work.
