Morinville – Community Services will be holding a party next week to inform residents about what opportunities exist in the community and to allow the Cultural Centre to unveil its 2012 / 2013 arts and entertainment programing.
Cultural Services Manager Laurie Stalker said the Sept. 13 will take place from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m.
“It’s an after work program to introduce our new staff here at the Community Services and to talk a bit about what program services we offer here, and generally have a good time,” she said. “It will include the launch of the Community Cultural Centre season as well as an overview of the Community Guide which has just been produced.”
The two-hour event will include entertainment, children’s activities, and refreshments. There will also be a tour of the facility for those who have not had an opportunity to see the entire cultural centre.
Stalker said there will be a formal presentation at 5:45 p.m. but people can come at any time during the two-hour window and get the information they need.
“It’s exciting to find out what Community Services is going to be up to over the next little while, and it’s exciting for me to announce the new season,” Stalker said. “We’ve got a number of great shows and increased kids’ programing this year, and a main stage series in addition to a couple of specials.”
Although the lineup has been published in the Community Guide, Stalker said specific details on the season’s lineup is will be revealed that night. The Jesse Peters Trio and the Beatle Maniacs will be the first two acts in the series, but a major international performer is set to be announced during the Sept. 13 event that is not on the list.
The Cultural Services Manager said she will be doing more marketing of the concerts in the series both in town and out of town this season. One thing on the horizon is a calendar which will include concert dates as well as festivals and Community Services programing. It is hoped the calendar will keep people more up to date with what is happening.
She is hoping residents will come out for the Community Services event Sept. 13. “I think it will be a good time for people to come out, get to know us, and see what they can access,” she said.
The event takes place at the Community Cultural Centre from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. Sept. 13.
