The annual Oasis Central Minnesota Paint a Thon was held Aug. 1. Rose Surma with Central Oasis Minnesota said the event went well. We painted and repaired six houses and had one home that needed some repairs,” she said. This year, Little Falls Hardware Hank donated 35 gallons of paint and Ace Hardware donated 16 gallons of paint. Five of the homes were in Little Falls, one home was in Randall and the other was in Hillman.
