Olney Express Service

Imagine your commute to work was time spent on things like answering emails, updating Facebook, reading the paper, or just relaxing. This December, Martin’s Sedan and Limousine Service will begin Olney Express, an express service from Olney to destinations designated by Olney residents. To start, the initial pick up location will be at a church on Route 108 near Headwaters Dr (can park there). Eventually there will be other locations throughout Olney, each with an express service to a destination. In order to customize the routes for those interested in this service, please answer this short survey.

GOCA Award Nominations

Olney is such a special place because it is filled with many people who care about Olney and are willing to “get involved” and give something back to the community, each in their own way.

Each year Greater Olney Civic Association (GOCA) says thank you to the many individuals, businesses, and other organizations that the community has identified as having made a notable contribution to the greater Olney community. GOCA seeks nominations from its members and from the community. A ballot is compiled and voted on by GOCA Representatives. The awards will be presented at Our Lady of Good Counsel High School on Sunday, March 13 at 2 pm.

Click here for more information on the different award categories.  To nominate a person or group, please send an email (message or an attached word document) explaining who you are nominating and why to both  bfalcigno @ goca.org and matt @ mattzaborsky.com (you will need to remove the spaces in the email addresses).  Please include your contact information so we can contact you if there are any questions.  Nominations need to be received by February 9, 2016.
