Members of the Holly Commercial Club discussed last month’s annual Bluegrass Festival, which was another success for the region.  The Bluegrass dinner served 75 people on Friday which resulted in some leftover food.  Tracie Kalma was able to make a profit on the resale which helped eliminate some of the overhead expenses.  Profits from the meal came to $348.14 and the sale of the annual Holly Wog tee shirts resulted in an almost breakeven accounting with profits of $2.72 on nine tee shirts sold.  There was a discussion on updating the tee shirts in hopes on increasing sales.  The general recommendations were that the shirts not be white and the Club will vote on designs for consideration.  The annual Wog is a special community event that should bring more visitors to Holly and give the local community a reason to either walk or jog the course.  On that note, Club members discussed advertising for the 5K race and register to be listed for other 5K races.

Tracee Nelson Yarborough, Nurse Practitioner from High Plains Community Health Center was the monthly meeting guest speaker.  Yarborough is recently employed at the Holly Health Clinic.  Claudia Parker and Jackie Leiker, representing the Holly Fun Club, thanked HCC members for their donation.  Five bicycles were given out during the Bike Rodeo and the event was well attended by both kids and their parents.

Holly Hock-It will be held on Saturday, August 1 this year and maps for area yard sales will be available from Reyman’s Grocery Store and JR’s Country Store.  Advertising around the town will keep residents up to date on the deadline for submission of their yard sale information in order to be included on the sales map.
