HoLLIE 2022 Winter Classes are Cancelled
 

Regretfully, because of the December surge in the Omicron virus, we found we could not safely continue with plans for in-person HoLLIE classes, and we did not have enough time to make the arrangements necessary to shift such a large and involved agenda to a virtual format.  

People who were registered will receive refunds through Howard County Recs and Parks.
