102 First Street, Holly.

HOLLY, Michigan - While John Lauve won’t be the man to give the 102 First Street home a total makeover, he will forever be credited – or blamed, for saving the three-story dilapidated structure from demolition.

Last November, Holly’s Downtown Development Authority (DDA) allocated approximately $23,000 to buy the property, and promptly deeded it to the village of Holly for the purpose of demolishing the home and potentially using the property for a 30-35 space parking lot.

In January, Lauve lobbied to save the historic home, calling it a “gem,” and telling council members its refurbishment would only enhance the “Mill Plaza” area. Council initially rejected Lauve’s pleas, and in February, condemned the “Gray Lady,” and prepared for demolition.

HOLLY, Michigan – Since opening the doors to her new business in 2011, Melissa Pelletier, owner of Radiant Sol tanning salon has continued to improve her business by offering more and more services at prices that simply cannot be beaten.

In addition to having seven tanning beds of varying intensities, sauna therapy, tech-applied airbrush tanning services, and 24/7 access to the facility available to approved customers, Pelletier has rolled out her newest service – red light therapy.

“Red Light Therapy is UV-free, is 100-percent safe, and is and FDA-approved,” Pelletier said. While the unit looks like a conventional tanning bed, red light therapy can be used to treat a myriad of conditions. “It cures everything from acne to rosacea, and it increases circulation for pain management to those who may be suffering from arthritis,” she said. “Most people use it because red light permeates your derma, and its an elastin and collagen rebuilder, so over time, it helps get rid of your fine lines and wrinkles.”

HOLLY, Michigan – Gerald “Alec” Senton has spent many of his 16-years bettering himself through the Boy Scouts of America program, earning the 26 badges and completing a detailed project to achieve the rank of Eagle Scout.

Last summer, Alec completed his chosen project – rebuilding Rose Pioneer Elementary School’s nature trail by mowing down years of overgrown grass, raking out and laying a weed barrier down the trail, discovering and restoring a lost fire pit area, and repairing the broken footbridges that the school’s Parent Teacher Organization put in several years prior. A member of local Scout Troop 43, Alex has also put in countless volunteer hours at his church, school, and serving in the kitchen of the Holland City Mission.
