The Donalda Beautification Initiative met on Feb. 1 with five community members in attendance. The purpose of this group is to improve the first impression to visitors and residents by focusing on several areas. The group discussed several existing key areas as well as the possibility of creating new flowerbeds. The committee will be looking for volunteers in the spring to help with cleanup and the accomplishment of these goals. If you are interested in volunteering and/or would like to be involved, please contact Beth at 403-883-2891.
