Haynes Ranch Notes
Using a photo taken by John Chapman, some of the members of the Double O Quilters, concerned with the condition of the Haynes ranch house, have used their sewing and artistic talents to produce four sets of representational wall hangings. These delightful quilts will be hung in the Immigrant Services building (SOICS) on Main Street Oliver beginning on Monday, June first.
Later, it is our the Quilters hope that various organizations and businesses in and around the community will be interested in displaying them in their establishments.

Last fall we had an amazing group of volunteers who came out to help OSSS and the SOSCP to remove weeds and plant native trees and shrubs at the information kiosk at road 22.
This spring we are looking for a group of dedicated volunteers to help us make sure they live. We will be picking up garbage, watering last years planting, spreading native seed and pulling weeds to give our new little plants a chance!

We are looking for volunteers to help us pull weeds and pick up garbage along Max Lake road. Come up and join us in this fabulous spot. Bring along your binoculars and enjoy the many birds, dragonflies and wildflowers. Max lake is a refuge for many of our rare and endangered plant and wildlife species help us keep the weeds out so these animals can continue to thrive!
