Donalda’s traditional parade followed a shorter route this year but it was still enough for the kids to collect lots of candies.

Donalda had great fun

Thank you to all our volunteers who helped make the Donalda Show and Shine and the July 1 celebration a big success

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.

For information on the Bench Fair contact Terry at 403-883-2259 or Sheila at 403-883-2118
