CHRISTMAS PROGRAM 2011





The Ola Community Christmas Program was wonderful.  Ola has much talent in the musicians and readers to the beautiful children.  The Ola ladies Club presented the Ola School with a check for $800.00 in lieu of the ladies gift exchange. Thank you ladies.  The children played to a full house. From the kindergartens to the sixth graders the cast spoke their lines and sang with smiles on their faces.  The kids  were all dressed up for Christmas with the girls in dresses and the boys in dress shirts and ties. It is always a joy to notice how much they have grown since the previous program. A highlight of the program is always the reading of birth of Jesus and the children placing the figurines in the Nativity scene.  We all sang Christmas song and carols and awaited the arrival of Santa who made sure that everyone who was good received a goodie bag.  Sharon Sutton won the P.T.O. dinner basket raffle.  A fun time was had by all.  Thank you to the Ola School staff and the wonderful people of Ola for this  gift to our community.


Thanks to my photographer and reporter for covering for me!

UPDATE ON NICK aka TICK


Several people from the Ola community donated money to go towards Nick's vet bills. Nick, as you recall, was the blue tick hound that came to P.A.L. in very poor shape.  Thanks to your generosity, Nick has fully recovered and is in excellent health.  Nick also has a new home, a hound rescue group that will care for him until his perfect forever home can be found.  He was transported to his new home by plane through a wonderful program called Pilots For Pets. Isn't this a wonderful Christmas story?! Thanks to all!

SANTA VISITED P.A.L. THIS WEEKEND

Santa made a stop at the Pet Adoption League this weekend.  As a fundraiser for P.A.L,. pet owners could have their pet's picture taken with Santa.  Although dogs and cats were the majority of the photographed animals, one young man brought in his duck.  Also available for purchase to benefit P.A.L,. were beautiful Christmas wreaths.  This year was a big success!  Thanks to everyone for your contribution!  (P.S. Yes, this is Rufus with Santa)

OLA LADIES CLUB CHRISTMAS PARTY 2011

 The Ola Ladies Club had their Christmas party this Saturday afternoon.  It was so good to see so many neighbors and friends present.  It was also very nice to see the ladies from Sweet and to visit with a couple ladies that I don't see on a regular basis.  The food was plentiful and delicious.  Melly provided us with an interesting history of "Sinterklaas" and  Joyce Miller read a Christmas story, it was very nice.
 This year monetary donations were accepted to purchase science kits for the Ola Elementary.  Also the ladies were asked to bring food items for Ola's family in need  Thank you Ladies, your generosity is overwhelming.
This wonderful lady put in a few hours ahead of time to make sure the Hall looked festive. Thank you Joy!  It looked beautiful!
