It has been a week since Donalda celebrated the centennial. We are about rested up and ready to start on the next project, which will probably be a Drive-In Movie. I think we will be quiet for a few weeks.
The parade for the centennial was well-attended, with more than 1,000 attending. “First Ribbon” goes to the Spruce Coulee Communittee Centre, “Second Ribbon” is awarded to The Norman Family Wagon, “Third Ribbon” goes to John’s Vending, and “Fourth Ribbon” is presented to the Innisfail Pipe Band.
Thanks to Diane Conibear and Val Stolee for judging the parade. Thanks to Ray Kneeland as parade marshal and his assistants, Bruce Gartside and John Pearson. It was a job well done in keeping everything running smoothly.
The winners for the “Donalda has Talent” are: 1. Carly Armstrong; 2. Pam Sherman; 3. Brianne Bloomhagen and Chantelle Ambler; 4. Emily Spelman; and 5. Morgan Baker. Congratulations to all. Thanks to Rhonda Mead and Julie Hebbes in heading this event.
Winners for the draw at the Show and Shine were Car Engine, Abby Hafso, $500, Lucy Lohr, Patio Set, Gayle Haustien, Fire Bowl, Elaine Williams. This event was well-attended, with 77 cars participating. We would love to see this event return next year. Thanks to Jeff’s Automotive for putting the show together.
