The community of Olney and passersby driving through Olney now have the perfect way to cool things down during the oppressive heat of summer, Keep it Chill. Keep it Chill (KIC), is a shaved ice business set up on Main Street in Olney, across the street and cattycorner from Allsup’s.
The Olney Community Library and Arts Center (OCLAC) continued their summer of fun programs by bringing in storyteller and musician, Rochelle Rabouin.
My review of “Into the Woods” is layered with good news and bad news. Would you like to know the bad news first? The bad news is there were only four performances (June 25-27) by the Graham Regional Theatre (GRT) actors. The good news is that the cast did a fantastic job from the opening act to the finale.
Our friends over at the Senior Cub Center are back in full swing! Shown above are the birthday cubs for May. From left to right: Wanda Swaim, Jerri Ford, Glen Wiley and Ellen Hardin. happy birthday!
David Cox of Rhythm Path was one of the features from the Olney Community Library and Arts Center’s (OCLAC) summer programs on June 8. Rhythm Path is a hands-on interactive program that brings in West African handmade drums for participants to learn how to play. The program teaches about rhythm and how to play together with other musicians. Cox said, “the goal is for everyone to be one big band, so they are all contributing, listening and learning how to play together.” To learn more about Rhythm Path please visit their website at rhythmpath.com.
