ONE YEAR AGO.......

One year ago, August 25, our quiet little community made the news. After a confidential tip, law enforcement moved in to shut down a marijuana growing operation 4 miles east of Ola. It was a successful mission as it did yield about 9,600 plants. At the time no one was arrested, however, in the past year a couple of the "gardeners" have been arrested in another area.

AUCTION DAY IN OLA!!



The auction of the estate of Bear Hampton was held Sunday afternoon. The sunny day drew a great crowd from all over. Some waited hours to bid on that one special item, some had their eyes on several, and others just came to enjoy a great day and enjoy the company of neighbors and friends. While the auction was going on, the Ola Ladies Club was serving homemade pie and lunch to earn money for church siding and the Ola Library was selling books to earn funds for the library.
I trust that Bear is happy he could bring so many people together.

YOU CAN HELP PUT NEW SIDING ON THE CHURCH!


The Ola Ladies Club will be using the day of the auction (August 22nd) to earn money for the church siding. Proceeds from the sale of cold beverages, sloppy joes and slices of pie will go towards the much needed siding on the church.

This is where you can help! Please bake one (or two) of your wonderful pies and donate it to the Ola Ladies Club! This would be such a great help..the more pies Ladies Club can sell, the closer the Church is to new siding. Let's have those pies at the Ola Inn by Saturday, August 21st.

The Ladies Club had a good turnout for the Ice Cream Social on Sunday. A lot of people came over right after church to enjoy hot dogs, a variety of salads, delicious homemade ice cream and of course, a large selection of desserts! The donations from Sunday's gathering will be going towards new siding on the church. From the looks of the donation basket we're off to a good start. Many, many thanks to everyone for contributing! Another great day in Ola!!!
