Volunteers needed for work bee at arena


Donalda Diary

Well, we are into the Dog Days of Summer. With the sunshine on the weekend, everyone was out getting the grass cut, weeds pulled and fighting mosquitoes, just trying to catch up.

After all that work, why not take a break and visit the village. Come into the Drop In Center to enjoy a piece of homemade pie, a cold drink, tea or coffee. Maybe stop for lunch. Homemade soup and sandwiches are offered on Saturdays and Sundays. Sit a spell and visit with the knowledgeable volunteers. Maybe you would like to play a game of pool or shuffleboard. It is available. Hours are 12 to 4 p.m. and 7 to 10 p.m. WELCOME !!

There are dates to remember for this summer. The Donalda AG Society will be hosting a 3 day horse camp in August. There are requirements: children have to be 8 years old or older, they don’t have access to a horse and riding. Bring a lunch and have some fun, learning horsemanship. Call Julie at 403-883-2264 for more information. HAPPY TRAILS !!

The 30th Annual Bench Fair will be held on August 13 at the Community Hall. Exhibits will be open from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m . A Pancake Breakfast will run from 8 a.m. to 11 p.m. There will also be a Craft Market happening in the basement of the hall. For more information on this event, call Terry Nordahl at 403-883-2259.

On August 14, the 21st ABRA JACKPOTS will start. This event will run from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. For more information on this event, call Barb Bosh at 403-883-2691.

Volunteers are needed for a work bee at the arena and campgrounds to do some upkeeping. Call Ray at 403-883-2388.

Need a camping space? Donalda has a great campground by the arena. To book a site, call Jodi at 403-883- 2330.

Drive In Movie in the Coulee is happening again on August 27 at dusk at the Ski Chalet. What a wonderful way to spend a hot summer night enjoying “THE GREAT OUTDOORS”. There will be a concession open for your snack needs.

Birthday wishes going out to Byron Dinsmore, Lorne Yarbrough. Skip Roadhouse, Isaac Weibel, Cosmos Gillis, Nico Wendels, Jordan Walls, Kayla Berry, Arnold Jones, Taneesha Boyson, Ben Hofer, James Tanquay and Pat Dinsmore.
