Canada Day was a great success with a large number of people from all over the area coming out and taking part in the many events that Donalda had to offer. The weather cooperated for the most part and didn’t hinder most activities. A big thank you goes out to all societies and volunteers that made Canada Day such a wonderful time for everyone. Without everyone’s continual efforts these types of celebrations could never get off the ground. So thank you!
