More than 30 youth with summer staff and two seniors gathered at the Morinville Community Cultural Centre kitchen on Wednesday morning to make perogies and apple pie from scratch.

Mary Benson, Senior Programmer for the Town of Morinville said this Youth Centre Summer Camp activity was an Inter-generational program.

It was an opportunity for seniors and youth to be involved in an activity together.

Heritage Lodge residents Sonia Borisuk and Anne Musick provided their time and expertise in making the tasty treats.

Brain Bender Wednesday at the Morinville Community Library was a packed event.

The guest speaker was Morinville Nature Kids Leader Leanne Boissonnault who spoke about covered owls, bats, ladybugs, wasps, worms, butterflies, bunnies, robins, spiders and other backyard animals and bugs.

Boissonnault spoke about the white nose disease affecting bats and how bees are dying.

The special guest for the event was Twix, a ferret the kids enjoyed.

There were numerous handouts and colouring activities for the kids to bring home.
