Timbits Time
The Annual Initiation Timbits Jamboree is taking place Mar, 9 at the Ray McDonald Sports Centre. Twelve teams are set to play and the event is sponsored by the Morinville Tim Hortons franchise. Food and beverage, medals, bouncy castle, face painting, and ice time are all sponsored by Tim Hortons. Morinville Sobeys is donating hotdogs and juice for each of the players.

Games will be played in the Legal and Morinville arenas from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and a large selection of prizes will be displayed in Morinville.
