Have fun as a volunteer at Donalda museum

By Gordon Rumley

Here we are into October and you’d think things would be slowing down. Not likely. This winter, we have a couple of activities that require your help.

Now before you go off thinking that you don’t have any training for anything technical I need you to stop right there and hear me out. I need your help with things you already know how to do.

If you have a technical background, great, but it’s not necessary.

We have fun activities planned for the winter and spring and I’m looking for people who have 10–15 hours per week, about 2 – 3 hours per day. Not everyday, of course, just enough to make all of our work completed in a timely manner and keep it fun. So, call 403-883-2100 or come to the museum on Sunday, Oct. 17 at 2 p.m. and we’ll go from there.

I’d like to mention that the Donalda Museum is open year round and our hours of operation are Monday to Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Saturday and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Schools and churches will be the most obvious structures to be marked, but two rural stores and coal mines were also an important part of our bygone landscape. If your community association wants to be involved I’d be happy to answer any questions you have via e-mail at info@donaldmuseum.com Re: Historic Markers.

And here are a few messages from Marie Didow :

Hello everyone!

It’s been a while since I wrote, but we are still here and enjoying our beautiful Village and the people in it. Our next Bingo is on Oct. 20, starting at 7:30 p.m.

We serve beverages and goodies during the intermission at no charge and everyone is welcome. We will also be opening Saturday afternoons starting Oct. 16 at 1:30 p.m.

Come out to play shuffle board and cards. There’s a small fee and it includes beverages and snacks.

Finally, our prayers go out to Aileen Awe who suffered a stroke. If you would like to visit Aileen she is at St. Mary’s Hospital in Camrose. Let us give as much support as we can for Herb and the family.

Remember, our facilities are available for renting and catering and for more information you can call me, Marie at 403-883-2494, or Jean at 403-883-2234.
