The week in photos

Above: Equipment made its way up and down 100 Avenue all last week as Alberta Transportation continued its chip seal project on the busy provincial roadway.

Here is a look back at some of the sights around town last week.

The game called Card Bingo was played Friday morning at the Rendez-Vous Centre.
The cost is .25 cents per game. Linda Mondor was the Bingo Caller and also provided the instructions on how to play.

On Friday afternoon the draw was made at Community Services for the Morinville Rocks Summertime Fun Contest. The winner was Don Lalonde who won a Movie Night prize valued at more than $100. Lalonde was presented the prize basket by Mary Benson, Town of Morinville Community Services.

The contest was open to all ages and had 68 entrants.

Using the Town of Morinville map attached to the entry form and following the instructions on the map entrants headed out on the trail and visited the many sites and parks to reveal the letters and unscramble the phrase.

There were 15 rocks with letters which revealed the phrase “Growing Together”.

Don Boutilier grabbed this photo of what we think is a common greenshank, a not too common bird around here.

On Tuesday a Community Picnic & Fall Expo was held in the field behind the Military Family Resource Centre (MFRC).

The rain did not stop the many veterans and Defence Community families from taking part in the fun-filled afternoon.

  1. I hope they are not done yet. Driving eastbound on 100th ave. and the left turning lane to Grandin Rd by the circle-K to turn north is not much better. (Very bumpy) I hope they are still going to improve that, and also after you turn north on Grandin Rd. It has some major bumps on it before you get to the 4 way stop signs.

  2. It’s part of the process on how the roads are being fixed. It was explained like 15 times already in the other Morinville news posts due to everyone crying about needing their windshields paid for
