Donalda mourns two longtime residents

.

Donalda Diary

Donalda has lost two longtime residents in the past week. Though they have not lived in the village for years, they were still considered part of our community.

Our sympathy is extended to the Matheson family, who mourn the loss of Ruth. Ruth had lived in Edmonton in recent years. A memorial service was held for Ruth last Wednesday at the Donalda Cemetery.

Sympathy also goes to the Marcel Blouin family. A memorial service was held for Marcel at the Donalda Community Hall on Friday. Marcel had been residing in the Stettler Extended Care facility.

The community of Donalda is busy working on its centennial, which will happen June 30, 2012. Anyone wishing to provide ideas or expertise in event planning can attend the next meeting Sept. 27 at the Drop-in Centre. Your input is appreciated.

Birthday wishes go out to Katie Carlow, Loverna Dahl, Sheldon Donald, Joshua Martz, Sheryl Van Haga, Amber Standage, Janine Dalueg, Janet Bergstrom, Jared Berry, Trena Helfer-Thomas, Ava Leigh Lovelace, Kasen AnneMarie Smith, Nolan Shepherd, Paul McKay, Ward Salmon, Carl Nordahl, Kirby Cassidy, Ryan McMurray and anyone else celebrating a birthday this week.
