FROSTY FRIDAY — Last Thursday’s mix of snow and ice left downtown Donalda in picturesque form Friday and into the weekend

Last Thursday, there was a community meeting at the hall regarding the possible closure of the Donalda School. The meeting was well-attended by parents, teachers and citizens, even those without children in the school system.

The citizens realize what an important part of the community the school holds and are willing to fight to keep our school open. Thanks to all who attended and had their concerns heard and questions answered.

The delegates plan to attend the next school board meeting Nov. 15. Letters of support can be dropped off at the village office by this Friday.

The Donalda Agricultural Society held its annual fall supper on Sunday evening. It was also well attended. Proceeds from the event are being donated to the Donalda Parent Society to help upgrade the school playground.

Thanks for supporting the community.

On Saturday, Nov. 24, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., the Donalda & District Museum will host “Stones & Bones” at the Drop-In Centre. Bring in artifacts and have them accessed and gain some history behind them. The Donalda Friendship Club will have coffee and goodies available.

The Donalda and District Museum is putting together “family files. We had many inquiries during our centennial of family members looking for their genealogy, so we have decided to set up the family files. If you have any obituaries, copies of baptismal, wedding or burial certificates, please drop them off at the museum. We will make copies and start a file on the family.

On Sunday, the Donalda Friendship Club will hold its monthly Pancake and Music Jam Session, with breakfast served from 11 a.m. till 1 p.m., and music until about 3 p.m. Come out and enjoy some good fellowship.

Birthday wishes go out to Holly Komishke, Darryl Zarry, Gerda Mueller, Meagan Kneeland, Molly Kneeland, Owen Turk, John Hillestad, Loree Nixon, Tavis Murdock, Becky Dixon, Darren Sideritsch, Jayden Erickson, Susan Dahl, Karen Williams and anyone else celebrating a birthday.
