The dreary weather hasn’t dampened Donalda’s spirits. We are as busy as ever. Why not come and see for yourself?
The library is open Tuesday – Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. The librarian is available Thursdays and Fridays. The after-school program for kids in grades 1 – 5 runs every second Thursday at the Donalda Library, between 3:30 and 5 p.m. And there’s free wireless Internet access.
An FCSS after-school program for kids in grade 5 now runs every Friday until 4:30 p.m., at the Sharon Lutheran Church basement.
The museum’s catalogue digitizing project is proceeding apace, with nearly three-quarters of the collection now photographed and over half entered into the new database.
The fall supper, with Dr. Jack Brink’s very interesting talk about native hunting systems on the prairies, especially around Donalda, and the silent auction were also a great success. The supper was sold out and there were over 20 items on the auction. A huge thank you to everyone who helped make it great.
The Museum Society’s mandate is to preserve the history of Donalda and the surrounding area, to present it to everyone interested, and to help educate children about our past. If you would like to be part of this vital effort, why not join us at our next meeting on Tuesday, Oct. 27, at 7:30 p.m., at the Donalda Library? Give us a call at 403-883-2100, or e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We’d love to see you.
