Talk of the Town

On Aug. 29 Morinville Public School teachers and staff participated in a team building workshop. The teams were provided with a precut wooden kit with no diagram and no access to Google or other devices for ideas on the build. All the pieces of wood had to be utilized in the build. The houses will be auctioned off with the money being used in the community.
