Donalda Diary

Museum Day, which was put on by the Donalda Museum on Saturday, Aug. 19, was a wonderful success with a large number of people taking advantage of the free admission into the museum. Everyone was delighted at the number of lamps within the collection, but also the other local artifacts that were on display. Families also took part in a scavenger hunt that led them on a little adventure showcasing the many highlights on the Main Street in Donalda. There were also a few people who enjoyed the photo props at the Big Lamp. We would like to thank all those who came out and we are looking forward to next year’s Museum Day already.

This year is election year for municipal governments in Alberta. Nomination day for candidates is Monday, Sept. 18.

The Donalda Gallery for the Arts will be featuring the art work of Doris Banziger in “Breath of the Wilds” from Aug. 17 to Sept. 10. This exhibit showcases a combination of acrylic and oil paintings, as well as delicate drawings and painted feathers.
