University students dig in at Donalda museum

The Donalda and District Museum hosted “Stones & Bones” at the Drop-In Centre on Saturday, with three anthropologists from the U of A here to study the artifacts. It was well-attended by local people who brought in old arrowheads from an earlier era.

Two buffalo heads were brought in — both said to be thousands of years old. It was interesting to see how they changed to adapt to their social behaviour. The response was so good that the students would gladly come back and do another.

Don’t forget Donalda will kick off the Christmas festivities on Saturday at 11 a.m. There will be a Craft Market at the Community Hall, Santas’s Shopping Centre at the Drop-In Centre, this is for the little ones to come and shop for their parents and siblings everything at the shopping centre is $1.

The Donalda Community Art Gallery will be open with a display of Nativity Scenes and Village Christmas Scenes. Lunch will be available at the Community Hall, sponsored by the Donalda School Parent Group.

Santa pictures will be taken at 3 p.m. at the hall. Winding up the day will be a Lite Parade at 5 p.m. Come one, come all for a day in Donalda.
