School concert presents Christmas ‘through the eyes of the children’

Come out and view the nativity and Christmas village display at the Donalda Art Gallery.

Come out and view the nativity and Christmas village display at the Donalda Art Gallery. The gallery doesn’t have regular hours, so if you’re interested in viewing this beautiful display, phone the Donalda museum at 403-883-2100 to make an appointment.

The Donalda School Christmas concert is on Thursday, Dec. 20, at 7 p.m. Take the time to come and support your local school and enjoy the meaning of Christmas through the eyes of the children.

If you’re still looking for great gift ideas for Christmas, the Donalda museum has decks of cards with pictures of Donalda over the years, tumblers with a scene of Donalda, matted Donalda butter wrappers and DVDs of the Donalda Centennial Celebration. For any of these useable collectors’ items, phone 403-883-2100.

As it’s the week before Christmas, everyone is rushing around doing last minute things to prepare for their family members coming home for Christmas around Donalda.

The village twinkles with all the Christmas lights on the main street trees and the decorated homes. We should be very thankful to the many volunteers that work so hard to decorate and keep events happening in Donalda.

Many small communities of this size are not so lucky, as volunteers are hard to find.

Merry Christmas to all.
