Our Morinville and area in photos

Our Morinville is an opportunity to view life through our community members’ lenses. Photos can be of our and surrounding communities, cool photos from places our readers have visited. The pages are wide open on possibility. Each month we will select one photo as the choice of the month. That reader will receive a $100 Shop in Morinville gift certificate. They pick the business — we lay down the cash. Send your high-resolution photos to editor@morinvillenews.com
