Dear Holly Community Far & Wide,
We are collecting history, stories, and photos for the Holly Schoolhouse to put here on our HollySchoolhouse.org website. Please send anything you have, short memories, long memories, condolences for the loss, photos from weddings, recipes, events and historic photos, anything at all, and we will load it onto our site where you can also donate to our fundraising efforts. You can find out how to send in your contributions below.

Paige Stockley, Secretary
