Joanne St. Laurent Scotiabank Branch Manager and Chamber President Simon Boersma listen as Paul Smith of Smith Music donated $500 to the Food Bank, monies collected over a number of student concerts last June and Band Camp shows over the summer. Smith gave a challenge to those in attendance at the Morinville & District Chamber of Commerce luncheon held on Wednesday to donate as well. The challenge was met by Chantile Shannon who had a cheque for $500.
The monies collected will be matched by Scotia Bank.

Last December the Morinville Food Bank Society accepted a cheque for $10,000 from Scotia Bank. The cheque represented $5000 raised in the community over the Christmas season and $5000 in matching dollars from Scotiabank. Last year was the second year Scotiabank had matched dollars raised up to $5000 and St. Laurent said it was something the bank would continue to do.

Primeau held their Spider on the Wall event at noon on Thursday.
This is an annual fun fundraiser.

Every team secures one of their own members to the gym wall with the tape they purchased.
The timed event requires a lot of duct tape and strategy as to where to best place the tape.
The team whose spider clings to the wall the longest is the winner. This is the first year that two students were still taped to the wall after a fifty minute time period.

Participates included Kaleden Hunt, Mackenzie Feltham, Samantha Routhier,Calandra Maskoske, and Alyssa Palma.

More than 300 homemade poppies were placed on the tree at the town office on Tuesday afternoon.
These poppies have a fallen soldier/sailor or air person’s name attached to them.

This year, Lauri has not only the fallen soldiers from overseas and at home but those who have been taken by PTSD or other.

This year there are poppies that have no name attached- they are for the persons to honour their fallen soldier/sailor or air person.

The poppies are made by Lauri in honour of her son’s friends who died in Afghanistan.
Lauri receives no money for these poppies and only asks that a person make a donation to the poppy fund.
