The Greater Olney Civic Association honored individuals, businesses and organizations that make Olney a better place at its annual awards ceremony Sunday at Our Lady of Good Counsel High School.
The President’s Award, which was not announced before the ceremony, was presented by Immediate Past President Barbara Falcigno to the Olney Kiwanis Club and Good Earth Garden Market. For more than 20 years the club, using materials donated by Good Earth, has maintained the area surrounding the Welcome to Olney sign at the corner of Md. 108 and Md. 97. Throughout the year, the area is weeded and mulched, seasonal flowers area planted and lights and greenery are added for the holiday season. Without a hose nearby, watering is done via jugs carried from Good Earth.
