Two of the community’s longtime residents, Ida Jones and Rosie Vallet, passed away last week.

Our condolences go out to all the families.

The Donalda School Playground Committee is holding a month-long bottle drive in April. Please have your bottles ready when they knock on your door. Drop them off at the “recycle trailer” behind the Drop-In Centre. Please support the cause.

The Donalda Friendship Club will hold its monthly Pancake Breakfast and Music Jam Session on Sunday in the Drop-In Centre, starting at 11 a.m.

The Donalda Cemetery Club will hold its fi rst meeting for 2013 at noon, with a pot-luck lunch, on April 17 in the Drop-In Centre. New members are welcome to attend.

The Donalda Art Society’s opening gala is set for April 19, featuring art from our youth.

The Donalda Community Promotions and Art Society will hold its AGM on April 16, with promotions starting at 7:30 p.m. and arts to follow. Both meetings are scheduled for the Drop-In Centre.

Mark your calendar and consider bringing Mom out to the Mother’s Day Strawberry Pancake, Auction and Music Jam Session, on Sunday, starting at 10 a.m. The auction will start at noon. Proceeds will go toward a new storage shed for the Drop-In Centre.

The Donalda Ag Society has installed a new sound system in the community hall, with video feed to the basement a great asset.

The former ski hill has been renamed “Willow Canyon,” so it corresponds with the walking trails. It’s no longer a ski hill, but more of a recreational area.

Birthday wishes go out to Alexis Hall, Jordyn Nelson, Madison Blouin, Meryy and Melody Swaren, Reta White, Steven Anonson, Rita Foot, Herb Awe, Marty Esterby, Easton Holden, Jesse Standage, Clayton Becker, Darrel Dahl, Greg Sideritch, Shela Seale, Tricia Helfer, Robert Lane, Patrick Kneeland and everyone else celebrating a birthday this week. Happy Birthday!
