Donalda Beautification Committee has completed the planting of hundreds of flowers that will ready our village for the centennial in a couple of weeks.

Residents and business owners are working to clean up their properties in preparation for the celebration and organizations are holding work-bees to do the same.

Time is a-ticking as we approach the Donalda centennial, which is set for June 29 to July 1.

The Donalda library has new hours: Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday from 3 to 6 p.m., and Thursdays from 6 to 9 p.m.

The Wi-Ficonnection is now available 24-7. For more information, contact the library at 403-883-2345.

Plan to visit the Donalda Museum during the centennial celebration, or later this summer, to see the changes that have been implemented.

The library has set up a “General Store” and a “Kitchen/Workplace” in a small home of years ago. We also hope to have the large crystal chandelier hung by mid-June. It should be impressive.

We must remember that tourism is our future economy and we must present our village as a proud place to live and visit.

Remember, “Our first impression is a lasting impression.”

You don’t get a second chance to make that first impression.

Saturday was again a busy day, with many visitors in the village touring around and also enjoying the million-dollar view.

Birthday wishes go out to Kara Wilkie, Rylan Salmon, Levi Baker, Melainie Walls, Cam Nixon, Gina Hurren, Kyle Foot, Jonathon Marshall, Judah Auton, Tana Nixon, Brianne Ternes, Hannah Kneelandch and anyone else celebrating a birthday this week.
