First things first: the frozen yogurt.
On Tuesday, June 17, the offer at Froyo Frenzy applies to $3 cones with your-choice filling from 4 – 7 p.m. Froyo Frenzy is located at 40044 Highway 49, Suite B2 (near Von’s).

The Sierra Senior Society supports the Sierra Senior Center in Oakhurst. In addition to being the hub of senior activities and offering a lunch program to any senior citizen, the Center is listed as a cooling and heating center with Madera County.
The Center stands a chance of reaping monetary rewards from a well-run campaign. To win the race, the Honorary Mayoral candidates raise money for their favorite non-profit organization through various and always entertaining events. Each dollar raised during the campaign counts as a vote; the candidate with the most votes wins the title and duties of the Honorary Mayor of Oakhurst. Organizers encourage everyone to vote early and often.
Over the years the annual Oakhurst Honorary Mayoral Campaign has brought awareness to and raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for many local charities. A record breaking $161,655 was raised during the 2013 Honorary Mayoral Campaign. This year’s campaign began on Thursday, Apr. 10, and runs through Thursday, July 10.
This will be the first year that this longstanding community wide event will be run by the Eastern Madera County Chamber of Commerce (EMCCC) Foundation. Previously, the Oakhurst Area Chamber of Commerce (OACC) has administrated the event and will be lending its support through this year’s transition.
The event truly fits the mission of the EMCCC Foundation: To facilitate and provide a mechanism for Chamber and community-based projects that enhance the Eastern Madera County communities, their businesses and residents.
The EMCCC Foundation has been quietly supporting community based projects since 1994. For more information contact the Chamber.
