OLMSTED FALLS, Ohio – The Bulldog spirit does not hibernate in times of stress and, yes, even fear.

Several community members came together – well, keeping socially distant – to help rejuvenate part of the Olmsted Community Center.

Donna Winter, the center’s executive director, noticed the floor in Hawkins Hall, the former Olmsted Falls Middle School cafeteria, needed some freshening up. It was scraped in June and time for repainting.
