Daylong snowfall adds to Christmas feel in Donalda

It was a very busy weekend in Donalda, with the “Village Christmas” held on Saturday.

It was a very busy weekend in Donalda, with the “Village Christmas” held on Saturday.

The weather was perfect. With the snow falling all day, it really felt like Christmas.

The event was well-attended, with children and adults out enjoying the Christmas Market at the hall.

There were 28 tables set up and lots to choose from —baking, home preserves, handmade doll clothes, handmade socks, blankets and home décor.

Thanks to the Donalda Parent Group for making lunch available.

The Santa Shopping Centre was an opportunity for the children to shop, and it was also well-attended, with about 190 gifts going out the door.

The Donalda Community Arts Society had the gallery open, displaying nativity scenes and a Village Christmas. The gallery offered apple cider and ginger cookies. A light parade was held at 5 p.m., followed by fireworks.

It was apparent a good time was had by all.

The art gallery will be open for viewing on Mondays, Thursdays and Fridays until Christmas, if you did not get in during the Village Christmas celebration.

The Donalda Coulee Friendship Club will have a Christmas pancake and jam session this Sunday, so mark your calendars and come out to enjoy pancakes and music. Doors open at 11 a.m.

The Donalda Ag Society will hold its annual general meeting on Tuesday, Dec. 11, at 7:30 p.m. in the hall. New members are always welcome to help make the society more vibrant. They are a hub in our community.

If anyone is looking for stocking stuffers, the museum has the centennial playing cards and beverage cup still available.

Happy Birthday wishes go out to Kirby Massey, Kyle Van Haga, Lawrence Clarke, Louise Boyson, Nicole Bergstrom, Parker Van Haga, Sara Erickson, Emily Cartier, Garnett Schoettler, Murray Dyck, Tracy Dietrich, Sarah Andres, Lexi Dietrich, Brayden Hofer, Samson Bailey, Bev Getzlaf, Jon Hillestad, Kim Salmon, Lee Crumly, Tracey Klatt and anyone else celebrating a birthday this week.
