FESTIVAL OF LIGHTS 2016

Sunday, December 3th

Silent Auction

 Festival of Lights

The Festival of Lights is a very successful fundraiser for the Museum. We are fortunate to have so many kind and generous donors and supporters of this event. This year's event will be a silent auction that will take place at Perkins House from 4-8pm. Come and place your bids...It is a wonderful and exciting way to begin the Holiday season. Local talented artisans, restaurants and businesses have been participating in this event for many years. The one of a kind beautifully decorated wreaths, which are locally produced, are always in demand, creative gift baskets and donated bid items for the auction are always greatly appreciated. The monies raised help support and maintain the buildings, but more importantly it supports the educational programs to MT Holly Students and other local communities and schools. We sponsor and offer scholarships to students at Black River High School Senior Awards and donate to History Day.

Mount Holly Community Historical Museum Summer Calendar 2016

ANNUAL MEETING

Tuesday, July 21st Annual Meeting...Pot Luck Dinner 6p.m at the Odd Fellows Hall

Program Following "All Things Loons - stories about their natural history and conservation" by Eric Hanson, Vermont Loon Conservation Project (VLCP) Coordinator Vermont Center for Ecostudies.

Loons are back and doing well in Vermont after nearly disappearing 30 years ago. Join Eric Hanson, VCE biologist and coordinator of the Vermont Loon Conservation Project explore this success story as well as all things loons. Loons are some of the most studied birds in North America in part because biologists, and anyone really, can observe them nearly every minute of every daylight hour (and a few biologists have done exactly that). Come hear what biologists have learned over the past 25 years following color-marked loons and how VCE conservation efforts have brought the loons back to Vermont. We'll share stories ranging from rescues of loons in distress to why loons conduct takeovers of each other's territory.
