Teens gain library hours for homework, night fun



We hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend, which was a busy time in Donalda. Our community hosted the Willy Bronze Poker Rally on Saturday and Sunday.

This is Fire Prevention Week, and it’s a good time to check the smoke alarms in your home.

The Donalda Library is busy with Homework Help on Wednesdays from 3:30 to 5 p.m., while Thursday evening is Teen Night at the Library, running from 6:30 to 8:30. It’s hoped that young people in the community utilize this facility.

The Donalda Drop-In Centre will hold its monthly meeting Thursday at 12:30 p.m. at the Drop-In Centre. Come out and enjoy lunch, with the meeting to follow.

The monthly pancake breakfast and jam session begins at 11 a.m., with music starting at 2 p.m. Enjoy the music and fellowship.

The Donalda Agricultural Society has a new caretaker in Patrick Clark. For hall or arena bookings, call Patrick at 403-883-2900. Also check out the new website for the Ag Society at www.donaldaagsociety.ca.

The organization is in need of new directors for 2012. All interested parties who care for their community are asked to call Myra at 403-883-2870.

A church service is planned for Sunday at Sharon Lutheran Church. There will be a service at Bethany, with Pastor Rob Lewis. For this week only, the service begins at 11 a.m.

There’s also a women’s bible study on Thursdays at 9:30 a.m. Visitors are welcome. Contact Evelyn at 403-883-2179 or Esther at 403-883-2854.

The Donalda Parent Society is selling community calendars. It’s a fundraising project that helps pay for field trips, awards and other needs at the school.

Thanksgiving weekend was the last weekend the Donalda & District Museum was open until next spring. The museum will undergo some changes over the winter months, so at times it’ll be somewhat in disarray. We suggest you call ahead if you’re planning a visit.

Birthday greetings go out to Jodi Blouin, Grant McKetsey, Conrad Quist, MaryAnn Cartier, Tammy VanHaga, Arynn Sideritsch, Elizabeth Marshall, Nicole Sideritsch, Leah Erickson, Anna Bailey, Colin Walker, Heather Blouin, Ken Norman, Linda Rider, Shonna Burkard, Tracee Vikse, and anyone else who might be celebrating a birthday this week.
