Today at 1:22 PM
A Special Project: Working together we raised $835. for the Activities Fund at The Emory L. Bennett State Veterans Home in Daytona Beach, FL. The Union Congregational Church Villages Theater Group gave a splendid performance at Union Congregational United Church of Christ in Holly Hill entitled: Memories of World War II: When We Were Children.
Donations were made by those who attended. Holly Hill American Legion Post 120 & it's affiliates made  generous contributions & WV Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 8516 also gave to the worthy cause.
Rev. Steve Heath accompanied by Bina Booth, American Legion Ladies Auxiliary Post 120 & Peggy Barker, Veterans of Foreign Wars Ladies Auxiliary Post 8516 WV presented a check to ELB Administrator E. Gray Kilpatrick which will be used for the Veterans at the Home. (See Photo)
