Notice: Passing of Holly Society Member
Tim Dillard, South Central Chapter
Tim was the South Centrall Chapter Secretary/Treasurer for many years just retiring at the end of Dec. from his long time position. Tim loved his hollies and enjoyed going to the Holly meetings and conventions. We were able to go to England with the Holly Society in 2007 with Ron Solt and the group that went that year. That was a trip of a lifetime for Tim. We both really enjoyed it. - Wanda Dillard 2/27/11
