Donalda Museum hosts fundraising dinner for creamery

The Creamery was built in 1924

The Donalda and District Museum hosted a well-attended turkey supper on May 30.

Raising funds for the restoration of the Donalda Creamery, to date the organization has raised around $40,000 while also securing $36,000 in matching grants.

The total expected costs for the restoration is anticipated to be around $240,000.

Built in 1924, the Donalda Creamery was operated until sometime in the 1980s or 1990s. 

During its many years of operation, the creamery was well known for its many dairy offerings, even winning awards for the butter it produced. 

According to event organizers, the dairy even supplied power to the community for a decade between 1932 and 1942.

The museum routinely holds these suppers, and other fundraisers, throughout the year to continually raise funds for this project. 

Currently, the museum is raffling off a 1981 Winnebago Warrior motorhome as a fundraiser.
