What a beautiful weekend to have been in Holly Springs. Although it was warm, Christmas was in the air! Streets were lined with visitors to tour the open homes and attend the luncheon at the Kate Freeman Clark Art Gallery. Friday night, locals and visitors alike attended the Holly and Ivy Gala. Santa Claus came to town Saturday night, rounding out the annual Christmas parade through town. Minnie Mouse was also seen waving to the crowd. She is always a hit with young and old!
Get well wishes go out to Bea Green. She is convalescing at home after surgery last week.
Congratulations to Alex McCrosky. He is opening a down home restaurant in Danville, Kentucky, appropriately named Harvey’s. Anyone who knew Harvey McCrosky knew he was a master in the kitchen and made his grill sing with excitement every time he lit it! If you are up that way, pop in and bring a piece of Holly Springs with you. The interior is very nostalgic.
Shopping small businesses should be more than just one day. We are so fortunate to have amazing local businesses around and just off of our square. Even if it is something as small giving an out-of-town relative or friend a year’s subscription to The South Reporter, keep it local. Our local shop owners have such a great assortment of unique gifts that you will not be able to find elsewhere.
