Several events were planned for National Youth Week (May 1-7), a week dedicated to celebrating youth and their active involvement in the community. The Town of Morinville had events scheduled for the after school period May 4 and 5, culminating in a double-header rock show Thursday night.
The final event takes place May 7 from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m at the Morinville Community Cultural Centre. Area bands 7th Gear and If We Were Kings will perform a free show for those who bring student ID from Georges H. Primeau, Morinville Public School, Morinville Community High School or Sturgeon Composite High School. Food and drink will be available for a cost of $2. CDs from the bands will be available at intermission.
“We believe that National Youth Week is important to the community because it is a great way to celebrate youth, and show them how appreciated they truly are,” said Town of Morinville Youth Worker Tara Modien. “National Youth week is our way of giving youth opportunities to participate in different activities and recognize volunteer opportunities.”
