Donalda Xmas Market features 65 tables last Sunday

Kevin Sorenson to be auctioneer at Donalda event Dec. 9

By Donalda Museum staff

The Donalda Village Christmas was a huge success this past Sunday.

The Christmas Market at the community hall had 65 tables of any different type of wares. There were lots of happy customers. The concession run by the Donalda Library was able to satisfy the hungry customers with hotdogs, chili, goodies and beverages.

Santa visited the shopping centre at 3 and handed out candy bags and plush toys to the many children. The day was the right temperature for the wagon rides provided by Wayne and Karen Long. Everyone really enjoyed the ride. The parade of lights was short but so great and then the display of fireworks ended the day.

Important date to mark on your calendar is the Donalda School Art Gala and Auction at 3 p.m. on December 9 with guest auctioneer Kevin Sorenson.

Birthday wishes this week go out to Kirby Massey, Kyle VanHaga, Lawrence Clarke, Louise Guidlaugson, Nicole Bergstrom, Parker VanHaga, Rob Bjorge, Sara Erickson, Emily Cartier, Tracy Dietrich, Sarah Andres, Lexi Dietrich, Braydon Hofer, Bev Getzlaf, Candace Boxma, Jon Hillestad, Lee Crumly and Tracey Klatt. Hope everyone has a great birthday.
