The Donalda Art Gallery held an opening gala featuring the “Stettler Church Mice” art group.

Attendance was excellent, with people coming from all parts of Alberta. The art was exquisite.

The exhibit runs until the July 1 weekend.

There was a great turnout at the Donalda Drop-In Centre last Saturday to celebrate seniors’ week. Thanks to the County of Stettler for supplying the snacks and to Reeve Wayne Nixon and his wife Lorree for stopping by to help celebrate.

The Donalda Ag Society hosts a “schooling show” this Saturday at the arena.

The Donalda library offers free library cards. For more information, talk to Kelley.

Library hours are Monday to Wednesday from 2 to 6 p.m. and Thursday from 6 to 9 p.m.

Celebrations and activities are planned for the July 1 weekend. On June 28, 29 and 30, the Donalda School Reunion recognizes 100 years for that school. For the schedule, see Donalda School Reunion on Facebook.

On June 29, there will be a show and shine at the Lamp Park. It kicks off with a pancake breakfast at 8 a.m., and lunch and cold drinks will be available for the day.

July 1 festivities begin at 9 a.m., with pancakes at the church, a parade at 11 a.m., a steak supper at 5 p.m., followed by a street dance featuring “Hammer Union” and fireworks at dark. There will be activities running all afternoon for young and old. Bounce houses for the kids and pie and beverages at the Drop-In Centre.

The Donalda School Playground Committee is holding a fundraiser for the new playground equipment. Purchase a single leaf for $25 or a family leaf for $100. These leaves will be painted on to the “Donalda School Roots and Branches” tree mural at the main entrance to the school.

To pre-purchase leaves, call Sheila at 403-883-2280 or Shauna at 403-883-2122.

Happy Birthday!
