a percentage of our sales back to the group sponsoring the event.

We started the month with S'MORES Day at Ollie's on May 6th.
Maryjo & Gary Bergland-both Villages residents- invented
this NEW product. They want to THANK all of you who came out
to their day @ Ollie's and helped them with their test marketing.
They are about ready to launch it nationwide and your comments
and input were a big help to them.
Here's your chance to try it before the rest of American does.
If you liked to make S'mores growing up- then you'll love this!
We are now selling S'MORES CRUNCH by the bag-see display
in store.

Kegg's Candy Day on May 17th-Pecan Crisp was a BIG
hit with you. We still have a few bags for sale of this Yummy treat
& some sampler boxes of their fine, Handmade chocolates available
at the store. See their website for more of their fine

We also did an ICE CREAM social for The Buffalo Boosters
Club. This Great group supports our student althletes
throughout the school year and finished up the year with a luncheon
honoring some of the many standout student athletes
at The Villages High School. After the lunch they all had
Ollie's Sundaes for dessert. What a Great bunch of kids!

Coming Soon- Optimist Club Day @ Ollie's &
Special Kids Day @ Ollie's. These events are to raise
$$$ for these GREAT charities. A percent of our sales on these
days will be donated to them. If you are associated with a charity

It's going to be HOT this summer and these Frosted

in your Freezer @ home.

the cashier next time your in the store. Thanks to you
