HOLLEY – A Holley fire truck is decorated with lights and a glowing Santa as part of a parade on Saturday night, just before the community tree lighting in the Public Square.

All decked out for the holidays, a Holley electric truck rounds out the parade on Route 31.

Village of Holley leaders and residents gathered Saturday evening in the Public Square for the lighting of the community tree. Mayor John Kenney, Jr. read the names of those remembered with “Memory Bulbs” prior to the lighting of the tree.

The mayor read a list of 73 memories.

Holley residents admire the just-lit 23-foot-high community tree in the Public Square.

The Public Square in Holley is now festively lit and decorated for the holiday season.

Following the tree lighting outside, Holley residents were invited inside the Fire Hall for refreshments including pizza, cocoa and cookies. Here, members of the Village Board including Mayor John Kenney and Trustees Kevin Lynch and Connie Nennie (partially hidden) help serve up food and beverages.
