Jeannie Dillon

HOLLY, Michigan – Life is not a spectator sport, and Holly resident, Jeannie Dillon is proving that.

On July 24, Dillon begins a real life adventure – one that most people only ever dream about.  As part of a group from The River Chuch in Holly, she and 19 others will go on a mission to South Africa.

“I’m excited about the opportunity to serve and to minister,” Dillon says. “These people need help.”

Durban, South Africa has one of the highest numbers of Aids cases in the world – a place where more than 35 people die of Aids every day. The epidemic currently leaves behind a staggering 3 – 6 million orphans. It is these children the group hopes to help by providing food, medicine and education.

HOLLY, Michigan -  Abigail Adams once wrote, “He is polite with dignity, affable without formality, distant without haughtiness, grave without austerity; modest, wise and good.”

She was talking about our country’s founding father, George Washington – a great man still celebrated by Holly citizens to this day.

For the 118th consecutive year, Holly’s Washington Club will host its annual banquet at noon on Thursday, Feb. 21 at the First Baptist Church of Holly, 15030 N. Holly Rd.

A chartered social club, Holly’s George Washington Club is the oldest of its kind in the country, and is one of only two established George Washington Clubs still remaining in existence, with the second located in Buffalo, NY.

'Don't Drink the Water' premie...

HOLLY, Michigan —Alert the State Department—there’s shenanigans behind the Iron Curtain in Woody Allen’s classic comedy of pseudo-spies, diplomats, secret police, tourists and lovers, Don’t Drink the Water.

It’s 1969, and just as the Ambassador of an American Embassy in Communist Europe is about to leave, the Hollander family comes crashing in, pursued by the Communist Police. Suddenly, it’s chaos as the Ambassador’s bumbling son Axel must handle this hapless band of tourists, the riots that have started outside of the gates, and a budding love affair between him and the Hollander’s daughter Susan.

With characters that only Woody Allen could invent, Don’t Drink the Water features both veterans and newcomers to the Blue Heron Theatre Company. Marion and Walter Hollender are played by the familiar Brian Catton and Linda Mishler, and daughter Susan Hollender is played by Savannah Damoth. New to the Blue Heron stage are George Kullis (Ambassador Magee) and John LaCroix (Axel Magee). Also featured are Al Bartlett (Kilroy), Larry LaFerriere (Krojack), Matthew Semrau (Father Drobney), Gary Musgrave (Burns), Terry Connell (the Chef), Jonathan Smith (Sultan Yanis Kasnar) and Diane Kullis (the Countess Bordoni).
