FAIRMOUNT— On Feb. 7, Holy Family School staff, students, family and friends had a “wearin’ of the green” a bit early as they gathered for the
school’s 13th annual hooley. More than 300 people attended the Irish-themed event that featured games, raffles, food, Irish music and Irish dancing for the whole family. The money raised each year from the hooley goes to provide school tuition assistance for families in need who want to give their children a Catholic education. Holy Family School educates children from pre-school through sixth grade.
Hooley chairpersons Rob Liedkla and Shelly Thompson-Liedkla were hopeful the event would raise at least $25,000 as in past years, but due to an impending snowstorm that played a big factor in attendance, this year’s hooley raised $13,000. “It was a great event,” stated Thompson-Liedkla. “Those who were able to come had a terrific time.”
