41st Community Night draws thousands

The 41st Olney Chamber of Commerce Community Night drew some 3,000 visitors to Our Lady of Good Counsel High School on April 10 for a business expo and Taste & Toast of Olney.

It was the first Community Night since 2019 due to the COVID pandemic and featured twice the number of exhibitors as 2019, said Terri Hogan, executive director of the Chamber of Commerce.

“We were very pleased with how everything turned out, especially since this was the first time in nearly four years the event was held, and with new leadership in place,” she said. “We received overwhelmingly positive feedback from exhibitors and attendees. There were a few lessons learned, which we will take into consideration for future events. But overall, I think it was a great family event that showcased all that Olney has to offer.”

Hogan thanked the event planning committee, led by Andriana Weinstein, as well as the event sponsors.

“Their support was invaluable, and contributed to the success of the event,” she said.

Planning is underway for the chamber’s next big community event, National Night Out, to be held on Aug. 1.
