On July 27 the third annual Devola Community Day was in full swing. We would like to thank everyone who attended our event and enjoyed the music, games, food and fun. We couldn't have put on such a wonderful day without the help of numerous volunteers as well as several local businesses that made this fundraiser a success. We would like to thank the Washington County Sheriff's Department, Sweetapple Farm, the Devola Volunteer Fire Department, the Bronze Studio, Snobiz, Stacey's Dance Studio, and High Schools That Rock for keeping our guests entertained.
