Thank you to all our volunteers who helped make the Donalda Show and Shine and the July 1 celebration a big success; without your help these events would not happen.
Both events were well attended, Show and Shine started with a pancake breakfast at 8 a.m. and started to wind down at 3 p.m. with a parade through town, a wonderful day, weather was perfect.
July 1 is always well attended with visitors from all around, this event started at 11 a.m. with a brunch at the church, parade at 4 p.m. and fireworks at 11:30 p.m., with local music being played at the stage in the park all afternoon, the band set up and played from 8:30 p.m. until fireworks. Steak supper was served at 6 p.m., bounce house were open for the kids all afternoon. A fun, fun day.
Now to regroup and focus on our August events: the Donalda Ag Society will host our 33rd annual Bench Fair, on August 9; this event will be held at the community hall, opening at 9 a.m. with a pancake breakfast, exhibits close at 3 p.m., watch for signs as the museum will be conducting historical walking tours of the village. Bring your hiking shows and go for a walk in the coulees, as there is a hiking trail marked into the coulees so you can go and explore and enjoy nature at its finest.
