Guests for the Wednesday monthly meeting included:  Lance Benninghoff, PCDI Executive Director; Bryce Thacker of the Holly Medical Clinic; Anne Marie Crampton and Jenna Randle of Lamar Community College.  The Treasurer’s monthly report showed a year to date profit of $2,066.28.  The Holly Shopper P & L for October reflected a profit of $60.28 and year to date was $657.46.

The Commercial Club will sponsor the annual Christmas lighting of homes with a $100 first prize award and $50 for second place in each of three categories:  Religious, Most Original and Novelty.  The judging will be done by out of town persons.  The 2013 Christmas Cards are being prepared and will soon be available for sale.

The yearly Christmas movie will be shown on Thursday, December 5 at 4:15pm at the Holly Theater.  The picture has not been selected as of the November meeting.  It was reported that the Theater wall has been repaired and all the seats have been reinstalled in the theater and were cleaned by the KLACK kids.

Under New Business, Anne Marie Crampton from Lamar Community College mentioned that an online Veterinary Assistant Certification program has begun and LCC has begun preliminary work for the construction of a new residence Hall Pod with 24 beds, as living space is currently a limiting factor in growth at the college.  The LCC Foundation received a 501-C-3 designation and is approved for Enterprise Zone Certification money.  Monies donated for program development or capital construction to the college will be eligible for a 25% tax credit through SECED.

Ralph Plummer reminded the audience that Operation Christmas Child is underway at all churches in Holly (Nov. 18-24).  Boxes can be picked up or dropped off at any church.  The “Pack-A-Box Party” will be held at the Baptist Church on Wednesday, November 20 at 6:30pm.  As many of the recipients are in war-torn countries, anything related to warfare is not to be included in the boxes.  Some top items recommended for donations include sunglasses, washcloths, stuffed animals, writing materials and toys.
