HOLLEY – Despite the fact there will be no June Fest celebration in the Village of Holley this weekend, many activities and events are still planned for Saturday, and community leaders are welcoming all to come and, “enjoy a day in the Village of Holley.”

The annual  Village Wide Yard Sale is planned all day at the Community Center and throughout the village.

Additionally, the Murray-Holley Historical Society has a bake sale planned at the Depot beginning at 9 a.m. until gone.  The Holley Community Library will hold a book sale from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m. and the Holley Garden Club will be holding their plant sale at the Presbyterian Church from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m.

Garden Club members recently worked to beautify the Public Square for the summer season with plantings and containers of annual flowers. The flowers are purchased by the village and Garden Club members plant and maintain them throughout the growing season.

The Annual Village Wide Yard Sale will be held this Saturday in Holley.  A number of other events will also be occurring.

St. Mary’s Roman Catholic Church is holding a chicken barbecue and basket raffle from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. The baskets will be raffled off at 5 p.m. on Saturday.

Additionally, St. Mary’s is holding its first-ever reunion for anyone who ever attended or worked at St. Mary’s School on Sunday, June 5.  If the school was still open, it would celebrate it’s 65th anniversary this year and the parish is holding the reunion as part of the celebration of St. Mary’s parish’s 150th anniversary.

A 2 p.m. Mass is planned on Sunday with a reception to follow at 3:30 p.m.  Food and beverages will be provided and those attending will be able to get “re-acquainted” with old friends.
