The Donalda Community Arts Society held its opening exhibition last Friday, featuring young artists.

The show includes art from early childhood to Grade 8 students. It’s well-worth coming out to see how talented our young people are.

Phone the museum at 403-883-2100 if you wish to see the exhibit.

The students walked down from the school last Friday to look at their art on display, with a “gala opening” beginning at 5 p.m.

I’m sure that the parents and students who attended were impressed with what they saw. Thanks for coming out and showing support for the arts.

The Donalda Museum Society will hold its annual pancake breakfast and garage sale May 25. Anyone who wants to contribute to the garage sales is asked to bring donations to the hall on Friday evening, when we’ll be setting up. If you’d like your own table, call the museum at 403-883-2100 to make arrangements.

Anyone interested in volunteering at the Donalda School’s 100th anniversary reunion is asked to phone Don Seale at 403-883-2280 or 780-372-4410, or email him at dseale@clearview.ab.ca. All help is appreciated.

Are you interested in a horsemanship clinic? Megan Saum will offer such as clinic May 24, 25 and 26. For more information, contact Becky at 403-883-2436.

Birthday greetings go out to Chad Grams, Kristi Wollman, Sharmaine Andres, Andrew Kneeland, Brandy Shepherd, Amanda Swedberg, Kyle Westermeng, Joni Bjorgr, Kale Norman, Marina Reay and anyone else celebrating a birthday this week.

Happy Birthday!
