Morinville showcased what it had to offer Thursday night at the Active Living Fair held at the Morinville Community Cultural Centre. The two-hour event included 27 displays and tables set up by local groups and organizations, offering a one-stop opportunity to learn about and register for fall and winter program opportunities.
The event showcased a wide spectrum of activities for all age groups. Some of the offerings included the Morinville Young Naturalists, Town of Morinville Youth Programming, Girl Guides, Dance Connections, Sturgeon Ringette, Tiny Tots, Morinville Youth Basketball and Community Futures Tawatinaw Region’s Biz Kids youth entrepreneur program.
Additional participants included the Morinville Rotary, Lions, Block Parents, Community Gardens and Grandmother-to-Grandmother, the latter a fundraising group assisting children in Africa.
The event included the Launch of the Morinville Community Cultural Centre’s 4th concert performance series. Cultural Services Manager Laurie Stalker said there would be 12 shows this season: four Main Stage shows, four Kids shows and two family shows. The number is a reduction from the 18 shows the centre hosted last season.
A number of workshop demonstrations also took place, including a Zumba demonstration with Ralayne and Kayla.
This year’s event also included the annual sports equipment swap table.
