Going to the store

Mix it Up was the theme for week two of Morinville’s Summer Camp series. Participants enjoyed a trip to Sobeys July 15 where Bakery Manager Jerica Davies gave children a tour of the store, providing information on produce, organic products, the Bakery Department and other aspects of the grocery business. The children learned about the store’s freezers and the ideal temperatures to run them, tasted grapple (grape-flavoured apples), and saw live lobsters in the tank. In the Bakery Department they got to see the slicing and packaging bread, and how to make roses and balloons for cake decorating.

The Summer Camp Mix it Up theme consisted of creating some tasty treats, making pizza, visiting a cooking school, making grilled crescent dogs, tacos in a bag, cookies, as well as field trips, crafts and games.

Meet the author

Author Deana Driver was at Heritage Place Lodge on Thursday with her two Canadian best seller books and 16 of her other titles. Residents were impressed with a few of the stories, particularly Cream Money, the story of Prairie people selling milk and cream to neighbours and in town to make ends meet. Driver also brought the Zenimaginarium Garden, the first adult colouring book by a Saskatchewan artist and possibly the first by a Canadian artist.
