Upcoming events for Donalda include the Donalda Agricultural Society’s ranch rodeo on Saturday.

Upcoming events for Donalda include the Donalda Agricultural Society’s ranch rodeo on Saturday.

It’s a family event, with lots of competition for the kids, local cowboys and gals.

Starting time is 1 p.m., followed by a roast-beef supper at the hall, starting at 5:30 p.m.

The Donalda Art Gallery will set up a new exhibit, featuring the “Stettler Church Mice Art Group,” with a gala opening on June 7 from 6 to 8 p.m. It will run until July 2.

At the moment, the art gallery features “re-purposed art” by local artists. There was a great attendance last Friday for the opening.

The Donalda & District Museum Society held its seventh annual garage sale and pancake breakfast on Saturday. It was also well-attended, and the weather might have helped.

Don’t forget the Donalda School Reunion June 29 and 30.

Birthday greetings go out to Ashton Reyes, Easton Walstrom, Don Todd, Elaine Helfer, Felicity Affleck, Gail Halseth, Kevin Crumly, John Paul Wasyliw, Mennie Sta Cruz, Trent Selstrom, Tyler Dietrich, Candace Rider, Mercedez Rasmussen, KC Bugayong, Gary Blouin, Turner Volker and everyone else celebrating this week.
