Saturday in the Snow

Its lunchtime on Saturday.....we are expecting our large, regular group of families who attend our Saturdays at 1 program, soon.

I was very excited to come to work today and see on my desk a large box filled with 300 Cadbury eggs, donated by Cadbury Adams! I had requested, only a week ago, a donation for our annual Eggstravaganza event, and hadn't heard anything back so it was a wonderful surprise, but also a demonstration to me of business' support for the museum & archives and the work we do!

So the finishing touches are underway for Eggstravaganza! I hope to have a few hundred smiling and excited faces here on that day (March 22, between 10 am -2 pm). We have lots of great crafts and activities - Easter related (700 eggs donated by Burnbrae Farms, hardboiled by a great group of Galt volunteers) and medieval related (due to our current medieval exhibit). From 12-1 pm we will have lizards and other reptiles in the museum, along with a presentation to learn more about these animals - the dragons of today.

It should be a lot of fun, and I do expect the Easter Bunny will make an appearance to hand out all those donated Cadbury eggs for me!

I really do want to say how much we appreciate the businesses and organizations that donate to our events - for this one not only did Cadbury Adams and Burnbrae Farms contribute, but also Lethbridge Centre; Canadian Parents For French; Devil's Coulee Dinosaur Museum (no feet casting this year though - that will be back in 2009!) and Save On Foods!

And especially a big thanks to the volunteers for hardboiling 700 eggs and helping with the crafts and activities! We can always use a few extra hands so if you're interested, let me know - 320-4219 or

Hope to see you on March 22nd - say hi and tell me you read about the event on this blog and maybe we'll have an extra Cadbury egg for you, the adult (can't just give them to the kids :) ).
