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.
