Though he is a good sport, Chris is not good at playing Fantasy Football. Top – one of the notorious Hunt Brothers from Channel 8 News arrives to interview Chris.

Champlain Park Upgrades

Champlain Heights Park on 104 Street and 99 Avenue got some new elements this week.

New signage was installed Wednesday at the park located near the arena, which is home to the Morinville Centennial Community Gardens.

The new park signs were installed by summer students Marvin and Norman Warnecke and Foreman of Parks & Facilities Brody Stoddart.

The new sign is more visible and easier to read from the street as one approaches the area, as opposed to the old style sign, which have been replaced in parks around town.

On Thursday work was underway to build the new gazebo at the park. The gazebo is one of the many new projects by the Morinville Centennial Community Gardens.
