The Centennial Party

On August 13th, 2022, the Holly Community came together to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Holly Schoolhouse, built in 1922.  Tragically the grand building burned down in her 100th year but the celebration was still held thanks to the generous offer of the Manke Family on Old Holly Hill Road to lend their family barn for the occasion.  Here is Shelly Dey’s recap of that wonderful event that was filled with history, good food, music, Sheila Wyatt’s pickles, original Schoolhouse desks,  camaraderie and a love for Holly.  The family history boards showing everyone’s Holly roots were absolutely fascinating! Check out all the displays that were created.
