Donalda Diary

Canada Day was a great success with a large number of people from all over the area coming out and taking part in the many events that Donalda had to offer. The weather cooperated for the most part and didn’t hinder most activities. A big thank you goes out to all societies and volunteers that made Canada Day such a wonderful time for everyone. Without everyone’s continual efforts these types of celebrations could never get off the ground. So thank you!

The Donalda Art Gallery will be featuring the “Canada 150: Period Costume” exhibit until July 12. Following that is Kash’s exhibit “Something/Different,” which will run from July 19 to Aug. 9. There will also be an Art Opening on Friday, July 21 at 7 p.m. at the Donalda Art Gallery. As the name suggests, this exhibit features something different, with artworks ranging in mediums from watercolour, to oil, to acrylic, to mixed media, and photography. The Art Gallery will be open daily from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. with the exhibiting artist in on most days.

The Donalda and District Museum will be having a Ham and Perogie Dinner on Thursday, July 20 at the Drop-In Centre from 5:30 p.m to 7 p.m. The menu consists of honey ham, mashed potatoes, carrots, corn, perogies, fried cabbage, salad, as well as dessert. For more information please call 403-883-2100.

The Donalda Coulee Friendship club will be closed on Saturdays for the months of July and August. The next Pancake Breakfast will be held on Sept. 10 at the Drop-In.

Battle River Rural Crime Watch is up and running for the Village of Donalda under new members. If interested in becoming a member, please contact Paul McKay at 403-883-2438. Monthly meetings will be announced soon.

Birthday wishes this week go out to Dixie Massey, Luke Nixon, Anne Kotz, Jeanette Schoettler, Karl Sideritsch, Josh Hillestad, Betty Roadhouse, Kerri Shepherd, Henry Reyes Joan Boyson, Riley Gebhardt, and Selina Hellekson. Happy birthday to all!
