  1. I’m just really pleased that Morinville still celebrates Halloween!

    With so many other jurisdictions opting to ban celebrants of ALL ages from having a little fun, our community’s efforts are really quite remarkable!

    A boatload of kudos to the schools for continuing a tradition older than any of us!!

    And just think – in less than eight weeks, it’ll be “Merry Christmas” time!! Whoo Hoo!

  2. James, why did you have to remind me? 😛 I haven’t done my shopping yet!
