Things seem to be happening in Donalda of late.

A new business broke ground last Thursday, and a new residential basement has been dug.

Those developments are very positive news for our community.

The Willy Bronze Poker Rally was well-attended last Saturday.

It kicked off with a pancake breakfast for the community and riders. It was truly a beautiful weekend to be out enjoying the coulees.

The ride was followed with an Oktoberfest celebration. The gathering was also well-attended — and the food was outstanding. Kudos for a great job go out to the volunteers who put the Oktoberfest together.

On Sunday’s plate, the pancake breakfast and music jam session was the first for this season. A wonderful group of musicians were there to perform a total of nine numbers.

It appears that, after having the summer off, all of the entertainers were all ready to play again.

Thank you so much for making the event so entertaining.

Look for the exhibit at the Donalda art gallery honouring our war veterans. Please drop by the gallery from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and share a minute of silence. “Remembering.”

Birthday greetings go out to Anna Bailey, Colin Walker, Heather Blouin, Ken Norman, Linda Rider, Tracee Vikse, Randy Shepherd, Jesse Vikse, Maisie Burlock, Riley Carroll, Mildred Howlett, Rebecca Ruehn and anyone else celebrating a birthday this week.

Happy Birthday!
