This year’s Bluegrass Festival was the main topic of information during the monthly meeting of the Holly Commercial Club this past Wednesday, May 1.  The June 7-9 event will begin in Gateway Park with a pulled pork dinner at 6pm.  This year’s festival, as outlined by Marge Creech, will be featured on two pages in the Discover Southeast Colorado Magazine.

Word is spreading about the annual event’s popularity as Creech said instead of finding bluegrass performers each year, the organization now has nine bands lined up for next year’s festival.  The Holly Bluegrass Festival is the only free festival in Colorado.  Friday is a jam session event, Saturday’s performers begin at 11am and the day features numerous vendors and free swimming at the municipal pool.  Sunday services start at 10:30am featuring Frankie and Phyllis Valens and a community dinner is scheduled for noon. 

B.J. Jones of Wiley addressed the gathering.  He will replace Michael Daskam at the NRCS office.  Jones outlined his experience and qualifications for the position.  Calvin Melcher said Memorial Day services this year will be held at three locations on Monday, May 27.  The Hartman Cemetery at 8:30am, in Coolidge at 9:15am and at the Holly Cemetery at 10am. 

The Holly Commercial Club meets the first Wednesday of each month at Noon at the Methodist Church in Holly.  Guests are welcome.
