Donalda Library holds Gingerbread Village

Third annual event was great fun for all ages

Submitted by Naomi LaBelle, library manager Donalda Public Library

On Sat. Dec. 16 we held our third annual Gingerbread Village.

I came up with the name because after we all decorate our houses and people we put them together and form our gingerbread village. I love this event because it doesn’t matter if you are 2 or 92 you can enjoy this event, whether watching or participating everyone is happy and laughing.

The kids work together, help each other and share- I can’t help but smile at how amazing these little people are. This is my fave event that the library runs and I am already looking forward to next year’s gingerbread event. Kids and adults were invited to come build and decorate gingerbread houses and cookies. Everything was provided, and all people had to bring was their creativity and friends.

We had an excellent turnout and everyone seemed to be full of sugar by the time they left so that was a success. There was juice, hot chocolate, coffee, chips and of course a table full of goodies.

All this was made possible because of the people and businesses that donated items. We’d like to thank Teresa’s Catering (Donalda), Sean’s No Frills (Stettler), Pat from Sobeys (Stettler), Shoppers Drug Mart (Stettler), Donalda’s Friendship Coulee Centre, as well as the several individuals who without their support this event could not have succeeded.
