Donalda Diary

Donalda welcomed the Good Sam RV Club on June18. They came and toured despite the rain. The group toured the museum, the bank building, which houses the Art Gallery (on display at this time is a Quilt Display by local quilters), the creamery, which is a recognized heritage building by the Alberta Government, and the railway station. After touring they stopped at the Drop In Center for a lunch and visiting.

The Quesseth reunion was held at the campground and arena. This was a homecoming for a family whose ancestors help establish our village in 1904 – 1905. Despite the weather of pouring rain, a fun family weekend was had by all.

The Riding Club is trying to hold a Darcy Mabbott Youth Riding Clinic on June 25th at the Arena. For more information contact Cheryl Charles at 403-883-2626.

An ongoing fundraiser for the “Willy Bronze” is still happening. To make donations to the bronze statue you can contact the Art Gallery at 403-883-2255.

The Donalda Community is hard at work and preparing for the Canada Day celebration. This day will start at 9 a.m. with a pancake breakfast at the church. The parade will be aat 4 p.m., a barbecue at 5:30 p.m. and fi reworks at 10:30 p.m. Lots will be happening throughout the day. A live entertainment stage will be set up at the lamp and an open market on Main Street. Pie and coffee/ tea will be available at the Drop In Center and there will be a model airplane demonstration (weather permitting) , blow up play area for the kids, sand pits to dig for treasures, and face painting. In the evening there will be ghost stories told at the gazebo.

Maybe you could bring your hiking boots and try out our new hiking trail into the coulees. So bring your lawn chairs and umbrellas for the sun or rain and come out and a enjoy a day in Donalda.

Camping is available in Donalda up by the arena. There is power available there.
