The Donalda Museum Society hosted an Alberta Museums Association workshop on Friday and Saturday, with 18 museums represented at the Drop-In Centre.
During both days, the group members toured the museum, creamery and bank. They took the time to enjoy the views of the coulee.
The visitors thoroughly enjoyed the time spent in Donalda. Thanks to the Donalda Coulee Friendship Club for providing delicious lunch and coffee breaks both days.
Tonight, there will be Bingo at the Drop-In Centre. It begins at 7:30. It’s a break during the week to come out and socialize with your friends and neighbours.
On Thursday at 7:30 p.m., there will be a live auction at the Sharon Lutheran Church. It’s to support Operation Christmas Child. Come out and give support to the children of Third World countries.
This Saturday, the Donalda and District Museum Society will host “Stones and Bones” at the Drop-In Centre. It’s an opportunity to bring in treasures you might have found in the coulees or fields and have them assessed by a student archaeologist from the University of Alberta.
Find the historical story behind your treasure. It’s a free assessment. There will be refreshments provided by the Donalda Friendship Club.
