The library is continuing to serve the community, so please stop by to see us during our modified open hours: Mondays and Fridays 1-5 p.m., Tuesdays and Thursdays 1-6 p.m., and Saturdays 10 a.m. - 2 p.m. Hopefully we will...
Easy Food (2004, Sliverback Books, Inc, San Francisco, California) combines, in the title, two favorite words: Easy and Food. I don’t know too many people who, even though they love to cook, want to spend hours and hours prepping, cooking, garnishing and then serving. The recipes in this book,...
It is possible that we may be back into our United Methodist churches soon, if the COVID - 19 count goes down.  This would be great.  It has been a long time. We’ll see what happens. It is always great to have volunteers help put up Christmas lights around Bolan, but it is really neat when they...
Well, 2020 is over!  I do believe everyone is hoping for a healthy new year with less turmoil.  I for one am looking forward to actually going to a Sunday morning worship service at Bolan Trinity UMC without a mask, being able to sing without being muffled, and to shake hands or accept a big hug...

The Village of Bolan is lit up for Christmas from one end of Tulip Lane (main street) to the other.  The big tree by the Trinity UMC has Christmas lights all the way to the top.  It is worth your time to come and check out Bolan lights. Bells were ringing in Bolan at 6 p.m. on Christmas Eve.  The...
The Bolan Schoolhouse and Cultural Center held a meeting on Saturday, December 12, especially to meet Ivanka “Ida” Kubler.  She is an artist originally from Bulgaria who has traveled and shown her work all over the world, and recently became a resident of Bolan.  She had some exciting and...
“Holiday Hope 2020 was a big success,” said organizers. The idea began with a group of local women with the idea of holding an auction to raise funds for area families. Inspiration behind the event was Heather Coombs. “Even though she has gone through so much battling breast and brain cancer...
