Donnelly Corn Roast
Fabrice and Vanessa Marquis play in the Bouncy Castle at Donnellyís annual corn roast
held on Aug. 30 at the Smoky River Agricultural Fair Grounds in the Village of Donnelly.
The event is a fundraiser hosted by the Donnelly Recreation Society in partnership with CREF
and ACFA. Money raised will be put towards buying new playground equipment to replace the aging
equipment in the village. Nearly 147 plates were sold and almost $950 was raised in efforts to
replace the playground equipment. Volunteers are needed for work bees this fall to clear the
ground for the playground, such as the work bee held September 1 to cut down trees at the old
park. More volunteers will be needed for the playgroundís installation next spring. To donate or
volunteer call Cindy at 780-925-2332, or the Village Office at 780-925-3835.
