Congratulations to all and thanks for participating in the bench fair and helping to make it a success.

The next big event in Donalda is this Saturday’s “Drive-in Movie in the Coulees.” The show begins at 9 p.m., with the gates opening at 7 p.m.

Those who come early can enjoy a hike in the coulees before the movie. The feature film is “The Great Outdoors,” starring John Candy and Dan Akroyd. A family night at the movies is an ideal way to end the summer.

Birthday wishes go out to Betty-Anne Gillund, John White, Carl Kittler, Brent Hartum, Laura Hebbes, Michal Henderson, Jim Awe, Kelan Carroll, Ken Ewald, Trudy Bailey, Cheryl Charles, Joseph Broemeling and anyone else celebrating a birthday this month that I might have missed.
