In order to continue, we will have to convert it to a subscription only website beginning March 1. We hate to do it, but if we remain free, this website will cease to exist. We truly appreciate your understanding, and as always, the print edition is available free in over 300 locations throughout the Greater Columbia Metropolitan Area. Thank you!

The board of directors for the Olympia festival met on February 8 to continue the planning for the event that is April 24, 10 am–5 pm. Numerous sponsors and vendors are in place such as Blue Cross and Blue Shield and Bernies Restaurant. Larry Grubbs from the Historic Columbia Foundation said two food vendors, Jays on Wheels and Uncle Bob’s Award Winning Barbecue, have signed up.

The Sheriff’s Department will provide children with an opportunity to get an ID tag. All of the children’s games are free as is the festival. The buses for the tour of the quarry are being provided by Vulcan. All proceeds will go to benefit the community.

A volunteer meeting will be held February 23 at 701 Whaley Street at 6:00 pm. There will also be a VIP drop in at 701 Whaley Street from 5:30 to 7:00.
