                                 Holly Pond Cemetery Walk
                                 October 12, 2013

The Cemetery Walk through Holly Pond Cemetery was so well received last
year that the Holly Pond Historical Society has decided to host the event
again this year.  Holly Pond has been home to many interesting and admired
citizens, and we hope to preserve the treasures of our legacy through these
walks. Listening to the re-enactors share stories of the lives of these people
from our past, not only entertains, but instills a sense of the strength and
values of those who founded our small town. The event will be Saturday, 7:00
to 9:00 p.m. on October 12, 2013.
