Canada Day a success in Donalda

This week’s Donalda Diary celebrates a successful Canada Day event

Donalda Diary

Kasheen Clousen

Canada Day was a great success with a large number of people from all over the area coming out and taking part in the many events that Donalda had to offer.

The weather cooperated for the most part and didn’t hinder most activates. A big thank you goes out to all of the societies and volunteers that made Canada Day such a wonderful day for everyone. Without everyone’s continuing effort, these types of celebrations could never get off the ground. Thank you.

The Donalda Art Gallery will be featuring the Canada 150: Period Costume exhibit until July 12. Following that is Kash’s exhibit ‘Something/Different’, which will run from July 19 to Aug. 9. There will also be an art opening July 21 at 7 p.m. at the Donalda Art Gallery.

As the name suggests, this exhibit features something different with artworks ranging in mediums from watercolour to oil to acrylic to mixed media and photography. The Art Gallery will be open daily from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. with the exhibiting artist in on most days.

There will be a Ham &Perogie dinner on July 20 at the Drop In Centre from 5 to 7 p.m. The menu consists of honey ham, mashed potatoes, carrots, corn, perogies, fried cabbage, salad as well as dessert.

The Donalda Coulee Friendship club will be closed on Saturdays for the months of July and August. The next pancake breakfast will be held on Sept. 10 at the Drop In.

Battle River Rural Crime Watch is up and running for the Village of Donalda with some new members. If anyone is interested in becoming a member, please contact Paul McKay at (403) 883-2438. Dates for monthly meetings will be announced soon.

Birthday wishes this week go out to Dixie Massey, Luke Nixon, Anne Kotz, Jeanette Schoettler, Karl Sideritsch, Josh Hillestad, Betty Roadhouse, Kerri Shepherd, Henry Reyes Joan Boyson, Riley Gebhardt, and Selina Hellekson. Happy birthday to all.
