We had an active September. Mark Piekarksi
presented a slide show on antique fire trucks (see photo). What a hobby that
is. Good thing he has lots of storage space on his property.
Additionally Hilda Tolles presented her
biography. What an interesting set of experiences she has led, to include
having visiting all 50 states. And we had our first lunch at the HBMS. A great
time was had between us “seniors” and the Middle School kids. Furthermore, the
“senior tent” at the Hollis Old Home Days was a hit (see
photos on our website).
On a very sad note, Virginia Walsh past away on
23 Sep 09. Our deepest condolences to Preston and his family.

Other Senior Activities of interest.
There is some discussion about putting together a Hollis Seniors Time
Capsule. Think about it. More discussion later.
Don’t forget to visit our Hollis Library.
How about some “show and tells”
How about having a TV weather person come and speak to us?
The Hollis Fire Dept wants to visit us and serve a MOW. All that is
needed is to fit them into our schedule during November.
Phyllis Houle has announced that she will be moving next year and
thus, we need to be thinking about a new slate of officers. Looking for a
new President and a new Vice President. Any volunteers?
We are planning a yard sale next spring to help raise some $$ for our
