Good old fashioned neighbourly fun in Olalla on the weekend

Event organizers were very pleased with the second annual “Trash to Treasure” day in Olalla.

Keremeos Ambassador Téa Hartfield presented Flo Winfrey with her winnings from the 50-50 draw on July 12.

Jean and Rick Mackie from Hedley brought their vendor trailer “Mmm Popcorn” to the Olalla Trash to Treasures event on July 12 and said that this year was great.”We sold out of many items due to the good turn out”.

There was dancing in the street as Shindigger provided entertainment for the crowd.

The Keremeos Volunteer Fire Department was on hand to talk about fire safety.  They also provided a “cooling off” to those who wanted to participate.  Their Ambassador candidate, Tea Hartfield, was also on hand and assisted with the prize draws at the end of the event.

SASSY was well received with an area set up for arts and crafts for the kids to do.

Event organizers were very pleased with the second annual “Trash to Treasure” day in Olalla.  They felt this year was a great success as they saw a large increase in visitors over last year, including out of town visitors who said they will be back again next year.
