Bench fair, pancake breakfast set for Donalda this Saturday

Donalda has been flooded with visitors to the museum and art gallery this summer

Donalda has been flooded with visitors to the museum and art gallery this summer, with many spending time to walk the hiking trail and take in the beautiful view of the coulees.

Everyone that comes to Donalda is surprised to see this breathtaking view, which many of our local residents take for granted.

Make sure to take in the Bashaw Art Club’s art exhibit at the Donalda Gallery for the Arts anytime during the month of August.

It’s a very impressive collection and can be viewed — and artwork purchased — from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day.

The Donalda Agricultural Society 31st annual bench fair is to be held Saturday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., starting with a pancake breakfast from 8 a.m. to noon.

There aren’t many communities that hold bench fairs anymore, so come out and support your local community to ensure that the fair can continue in the future.

As with any event, it takes a lot of volunteers, participants and viewers to make it a success.

Birthday wishes go out to Charlotte Bowden, Jeanine Foot, Kent Nixon, Monica Bauman, Ezra Auton, Ralph Sideritsch, Vanessa Hartum, Rob Berry, Dazi Crumly, Haley Fuller, Karl McCarthy, Liam Shepherd, Marisa Tantrum, Shantel Baker, Beaudon Rider, Dwayne Norman and anyone else celebrating a birthday this week.
