Donalda Winter Fest brings community members together

On the long weekend in February, as Alberta celebrated Family Day, Donalda hosted its Winter Fest for residents and surrounding communities on Monday, Feb. 20.

Organized by the Donalda and District Community Promotions Society, the event saw quite a few community members come out and join in the fun.

“There weren’t many people that came out for this event, maybe around 20, but those who did had a great time,” said Judy Dinsmore, one of the Promotions Society members. “The Lamp Park had an ice rink, but because of the great sunshine and mild temperatures, it wasn’t ideal.”

There was a fire pit and music with hot dogs, coffee, hot chocolate and ice cream for al those who came out.

“We also had wagon rides with a pair of horses Ted and Bill,” Dinsmore added. “A big shout out to Wayne and Karen Long for donating their time and the wagon to come out to Donalda and help celebrate Family Day with us. We’d also like to thank Brenda Gebhardt for her donation towards Family Day in memory of her husband Andy and her son Jarrett and a close friend Norbert Mueller who lost their lives in the ‘golden avalanche’ on Feb. 19, 2011.”
