First-aid completed in Donalda

The Donalda Agricultural Society hosted a first-aid training class by St. John’s Ambulance this past weekend with 14 students renewing, or getting for the first time, their standard First Aid Level C & AED certificates.

Sherralyn Damberger and Bev Anderson, of Demand Safety, made learning first-aid a lot of fun as they shared personal and practical experience to go with the theory of first-aid.

Those who were renewing their standard first-aid certification were introduced to updated jargon, as techniques like the Heimlich maneuver was renamed abdominal thrusts. All in all, the Village of Donalda, and its visitors, can feel safer when they are out and about having fun.

And speaking of out and about, this Friday, Nov. 19 at 7:30 p.m., the Sharon Lutheran Ladies will be hosting a fall auction at the Sharon Lutheran Church. Everyone is welcome and there will be a fish pond for the children.

Also that night, at the seniors’ drop- in centre, Ken Walker and his Blue Grass Band will begin their performance at 7:30 p.m.

Refreshments and treats will be provided by the organizers and they look forward too seeing you there.

The Christmas Decoration Challenge

The Village of Donalda is having a contest to coincide with “A Village Christmas”. They are encouraging everyone within the village of Donalda to decorate their home and/or yard in time for the Christmas celebration planned for Saturday, Dec. 4.

There will be a “judges’ prize” of two free train tickets on the Alberta Prairie Steam Train for the best decoration and a “people’s choice award” prize, another set of two free train tickets.

The people’s choice will be judged by the residents of Donalda up to and including Dec. 4. For more information call Gordon Rumley at 403-883-2100 about how Donalda residents can vote for their favorite decorated home or yard.

The “judges prize” announcement will take place on the evening of Dec. 4.
