Holly Commercial Club Trims Some Seasonal Events


The Holly Commercial Club decided to drop the proposed holiday tour of homes this December from lack of participants. Darlene Bruce reported during the June 1st meeting that the Christmas Tour of Homes had so few respondents; the event should be taken off the planning table.

Members voted in favor of allocating Club funds to help advertise last weekend’s annual Bluegrass Festival. Rod Swisher promoted that event and the approaching Holly Days events during a recent interview by KVAY Radio in Lamar.  The Commercial Club purchased the meat, buns, potato salad, chips and bottled water for the Festival, while the Holly Nursing Care Center donated cookies and the bank donated baked beans.

John Golden stated that there have been 40 persons who have registered for the Holly Wog (walk/jog) that starts the festivities early in the morning. Due to a lack of interest, there will be no commodities during Holly Days.

The financial report showed a net loss of $143.30 for May and a year-to-date net income of $1,889.44. Golden stated in the Holly Shopper report, there was a net income of $49.66 for May and a YTD income of $51.69.  Membership in the Club is at 21 for full-time members and 5 associates.  There were no new members for May.
