Around the Town – weekend edition

Plenty going on around the town over the weekend in terms of things to see and do. Here are a few of the things we turned our camera lenses on from Friday to Sunday.

A final card game

Primeau Pride
Primeau students Patrick Boulay and Lauren Smith were two of the 246 recipients of the Primeau Pride Certificates on Friday afternoon. Primeau Pride matrix is based on P-prepared, R-respect, I involved- D-decisions and E-excellence. The students have covered the first three letters of the acronym. The awards reflected the positive behaviour of those students, in the classroom, cafeteria, hall, physical education, options, library, computer lab and the school grounds. Prizes were also presented for those whose names were drawn from a container of citations presented when the students are caught in actions related to the positive behaviour program. This was the second of three Primeau Pride Award presentations held during the year. – Lucie Roy Photo

Harp time

More than 700 was raised during the event that picked winners by a combination of judges’ scores and by how much the audience donated on behalf of the individual performers. – Stephen Dafoe Photo

A HAT full of bargains
Susan Price looks over some of the many items at the St Patrick’s Day Garage Sale and Silent Auction held Saturday at the Morinville United Church with all proceeds to the Morinville & District HATS (Hands Across The Sea) Grandmothers to Grandmothers Group in support of African grandmothers through the Stephen Lewis Foundation.
