Donalda honours winners

The Village of Donalda is happy to announce the winners of this year’s “A Village Christmas”, a contest that wrapped up on Dec. 4.

Donalda residents who participated decorated their home or yard in celebration of the Christmas Spirit. For the People’s Choice Award, Darlene Tamtrum gets two tickets to ride the Alberta Prairie Steam Train, and Chris and Tasha Jafray win the Judges’ Award for their wonderfully decorated home and two tickets as well. The Christmas Market organized by the Donalda Agricultural Society and held at the community hall was well attended. The highlight of the evening was the Parade of Lights organized by Frank Sutton, platoon chief of the Donalda fire brigade. Horses, a vintage fire truck, quads and more made their way from the riding arena to main street Donalda as everyone got to see and enjoy floats decorated with Christmas lights.

Donalda Library’s Story Time program is now included with the Sharon Lutheran Church After-School Program on Dec. 10 from 2:30 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. This Friday is the last scheduled day for the rest of 2010

The Donalda Museum is open Monday to Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and admission is free.

You’re invited to see “Chop Suey on the Prairie” exhibit that is here until Jan. 14. On Dec 15, the library and museum are decorating their Christmas tree from 5 to 7 p.m. and they would like you to come in and have fun with them. There will be singing and stories and they look forward to see you..

If you have an event that you would like mentioned in the Donalda Diary please e-mail your story to, and write Donalda Diary on the subject line.
