Holly Commercial Club Recaps June, Early July Events


125 meals were expected and 125 were served on Friday night for the kick-off of this year’s Bluegrass Festival in Holly, according to Tracie Kalma. Net profits from the event were $600 and Viola Melcher informed the monthly gathering that there were plenty of positive comments generated about the meal and the bluegrass jam session last month.  Holly Commercial Club members thanked Rod Swisher and his family for their assistance with the BBQ supper.  Swisher stated in a report that Kris Stokke of Lamar was the raffle/drawing winner for the workbench crafted by Kenny Reyman.  The proceeds came to $215 which was donated to the Holly Volunteer Fire Department.

After an absence of several years, the Department generated enough funding to resume Holly’s annual fireworks display on the 4th.  Tracy Reyman moved to have the club donate $500 to the fire department to help with the fireworks expense and the motion was seconded by Viola Melcher and passed unanimously.

The Holly Wog was well-attended and the Holly Fun Club made $150 which will be used for future fair games. Plans are underway for a Halloween “Hallo-Wog” for some time in October.  In other general news, the Holly Hock-It event is set for Saturday, August 6 and anyone wanting to publicize their yard sale on the map should contact Tracie Kalma before the August 1st deadline.  If anyone would like to donate items to support the Holly Library, the library will accept those articles for their yard sale.

Current Holly Commercial Club membership is 21 full time members and five associates. No new members were added in June.  The next meeting is set for August 3rd at Noon at the United Methodist Church.
