  2. Vegreville is predominately settled with Ukrainian immigrants, mainly farmers, and the pysanka being their traditional way of decorating Easter eggs, the area is well known for its heritage preservation, music, dancing, singing etc and like many other small towns they like to advertise their clams to fame by erecting a large symbol, which also happens to be a wind vane!

  18. Oh! I don't go fishing now the kids are gone, just go and look, Two local lakes, most regulars have tents or huts, even caravans, parked all winter on the ice. No floors in the tents or huts, seats, heaters etc, beer coolers not necessary! drive your truck or car anywhere you think the fish might bight. When the kids were kids we had snowmobiles, we'd travel through mountains, find a lake and drill hole and fish half the day. No computers or video games in the days.
