• Happy belated birthday to Lane Hollis who turned 12 on Feb. 24. He is the son of Brenda and Keith Hollis. Lane celebrated his birthday on Feb. 23 with a party at home with family and friends.

• The Mt. Olive Cemetery trustees will be cleaning the cemetery the first week of April. Please pick up anything you wish to keep.

• Don’t forget to wear green on Tuesday to avoid the pinch that might be coming your way on St. Patrick’s Day!

There will be extended hours on March 27 from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. and March 28 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Approximately 50 vendors will be participating with a variety of crafts.
