On Saturday, Nov. 21 Olney Texas had its very first Annual Turkey Trot. It was a fun community event which allowed participants to come together and encourage one another as they participated in either a 5k or a 1-mile fun run/walk. This event was organized by both Keep Olney Beautiful and The Refuge, with all the proceeds benefiting Keep Olney Beautiful. This event was meant to encourage one another, promote health and provide a time to come together and reflect on the things that we are most thankful for. Most importantly, remembering and giving thanks that Christ is our Savior and provider, and acknowledging the many blessings in our lives.
With all the craziness this year due to Covid-19, Olney really needed some normality this holiday season. The Olney Chamber of Commerce held Olney’s first annual tree lighting event. The event drew a large crowd from Olney and the surrounding area.
On Nov. 17, Olney Floral held its much-anticipated Christmas Open House. According to Olney Floral owner, Tammy Montgomery, Olney Floral has been presenting this annual event for at least ten years.
