Hollister celebrates 5th Founders Day May 10

History and fun will highlight Hollister’s fifth celebration of founders day.Pancakes will be served by Anderson Electric & Plumbing. Brauts and tri-tip grilled by Harter House and beans cooked by Ye English Inn will be the food fare of the day. New this year will be an old fashioned ice cream social. Historical characters will roam Town Hall Square telling us why they were significant to our community. Vintage cars, boats and other displays will take us on a trip through our history as we countdown to our 100th birthday in the year 2010. The Hollister Community Center (Train Depot) will be covered wall to wall with interesting pieces of our history; i.e. articles, photographs and artifacts. History, games, food and music will set the scene for a day of fun with your family and friends. See you there!

HELP SAVE THE BUTTERFLY… that is on display at Hollister Town Hall. Christian Action Ministries has a unique building capital campaign in progress. Nearly sixty-five area artists painted three foot high acrylic butterflies in themes that were close to their hearts. The beautiful butterflies will be auctioned off in October. Mrs. Judy Gross, who resides in Reeds Spring, selected the theme of “Hollister Heritage”. Each half of the butterfly wings has a scene depicting the heritage of the city.

The butterfly will be on display during the Founders Day celebration on Saturday, May 10, 2008. Donations to save the butterfly will be accepted.
