Olive Hill UMC sets up cooling station

Olive Hill United Methodist Church (OHUMC) set up a first aid and cooling station on Sunday, July 3 from 1p-6p. With temperatures forecasted to be a high of 85 degrees with a humidity of 49% the members of the church opened up the fellowship hall to offer people of the community a place to rest, cool off, get water, clean restrooms, and receive first aid care. The fellowship hall was a cool 70 degrees offering an oasis to relax and recharge between the community events. The hum of fans offered a gentle breeze while volunteers and visitors talked and laughed with each other. The laughter, stories shared, and memories recalled was a balm to many hearts to add to the joy of the holiday. The church had four volunteers at the fellowship hall to care for minor cuts, sunburns, other minor injuries, and ready to hand out ice-cold water. Tables and chairs for people to rest, refresh, and cool off were decorated with Fourth of July red, white, and blue stars and flags. The Olive Hill United Methodist Church fellowship hall is located about 1 block from the city park offering the community a close spot to cool off and receive first aid care. Several community members dropped by to cool off and visit, and thankfully no one needed the first aid station. The church volunteers had a wonderful time serving the members of the community and encourage the community to look for more events at the church and fellowship hall.
