Donalda Diary

The Donalda Library has just wrapped up this year’s TD Summer Reading Program with the theme of Canada 150 and from the wonderful crafts on display it is easy to tell that everyone had a blast. The program numbers continue to rise and this year the Donalda Library was able to hire two summer students to help run the program. The program focused on keeping kids learning and staying active during the summer months. All the kids who took part in this year’s program are eager to see what the Donalda Library has in store for next year.

The Donalda Gallery for the Arts will be featuring the art work of Doris Banziger in “Breath of the Wilds” from Aug. 17 to Sept. 10. This exhibit showcases a combination of acrylic and oil paintings, as well as delicate drawings and painted feathers. Don’t forget to check us out on Facebook for upcoming exhibits and other local events.

Willow Canyon Drive-In Movie will be featuring the film ‘Pixels’ on Friday, Aug. 25 with the film beginning at dusk, approximately 9:30 p.m. Gates and concession will be open at 7 p.m. The film will be featured on a 20’ x 40’ outdoor movie screen in the scenic Donalda Coulee Badlands. There will be a full concession available. Feel free to come out and explore the Badlands before the movie. For more information please contact 403-883-2943.

The Wild Pink Yonder group enjoyed Donalda and the coulees so much last year that they will be back again for the September long weekend starting on Friday, Sept. 1. If you would like to ride with them on any or all of these days please contact Becky Clement at 403-883-2436. The Ag Society has donated the grounds and the area and kitchen for this group. Thank you. If you want to book a campsite please contact the Ag Society. If you wish to donate to Breast Cancer Research in Alberta please contact Bruce at 403-883-2943.

The Donalda Coulee Friendship Club will be closed on Saturdays for the month of August. Mark your calendars! On Sept. 10 is our next pancake breakfast. Everyone’s welcome.

Birthday wishes go out to Bailey Dietrich, Judy Swaren, Shawn Sutton, Deegan Gebhardt, Geert Bakkers, Kelti Olson, Rhett Norman, Brent Hartum, Laura Hebbes, Michal Henderson, and Jennifer Reyes. Happy birthday to all!
