The week in photos

Museum gets higher profile

The old St. Jean Baptiste Park sign was removed a couple weeks ago and replaced June 20 with a 9 foot by 7 foot metal Musée Morinville Museum sign manufactured by Craig’s Welding. Town of Morinville employees assisted Craig’s Welding with the early morning installation.

The sign was part of the museum’s hope to raise its profile in the community. Although existing in the convent building for several years, many residents and visitors were unaware of the museum’s existence.

In addition to the new museum sign, a blue travel sign has been placed on the light post in front of St. Jean Baptiste Park to let people know where the historical facility is located.

Watering bag

Town of Morinville employee Travis Brenneis fills a Treegator bag with water June 29. The 24 newly planted trees will have a Treegator wrapped around the trunk of the tree. The Treegator is a slow release watering bag that waters for approximately five to nine hours. The water capacity per bag is dependent on the bag set up and tree caliper. Ten gallons of water is recommended for every inch of tree caliper. The bags hold approximately 15 gallons.
