Community Day No. 42 ‘another success’

An estimated 3,000 visitors attended the 42 nd Olney Community Day and Taste of
Olney sponsored by the Olney Chamber of Commerce on March 24.
Despite moving the event from a weekday evening to a Sunday afternoon – Palm
Sunday, no less – during spring break, several exhibitors said the crowd was consistent
throughout the event, said Terri Hogan, executive director of the chamber.
With the higher-than-expected crowd and over 100 exhibitors, Hogan said chamber
organizers “consider this to be another successful event.”
She added, “We would definitely consider holding this event on a Sunday again, as
long as it didn't interfere with spring break.”
The Olney Chamber of Commerce is already planning National Night Out, set for
Aug. 6.
