Donalda Diary

Well, we definitely have had a marvelous Long Weekend. From the heat in the day to end with a spectacular light show and heavy rain. However, I understand that some did have hail.

The Donalda community is busy planning the 30th Annual Bench Fair, which will be happening on August 13. The exhibits will open at 8 a.m. and close at 4 p.m. at the community hall. A Pancake Breakfast will also start at 8 a.m. to 11 a.m., which will also be at the community hall. Bring your appetite and come out and enjoy the day in Donalda. For more information, call Terry Nordahl at 403 883-2259.

On August 14 and 21, ABRA JACKPOTS will start at 9 a.m. and end at 4 p.m. For more information, call Barb Bosh at 403-883-2691.

The Donalda Community Promotion has scheduled another Drive In Movie in the Coulee This will be on August 27, 2011 of course when it is dark. The movie playing will be “The Great Outdoors”. The concession will be open serving popcorn, hot dogs and drinks. Mark your calendars for another great evening in the coulee.

The Donalda Coulee Friendship Center will continue to be open for the month of August on Friday evenings and Saturday and Sunday afternoons and evenings, serving soup and sandwiches at lunch and of course homemade pie all day and evening. Come out and enjoy an evening in Donalda.

Birthday wishes going out to Jackie Ewald, Sharon Wollman, Bob Thomson, Shirley Erickson, Kim Patten, Robert Curtis, Jeanine Foot, Kent Nixon, and Hunter Paulson and anyone else celebrating their birthday this week.
