ARE YOU SURE that Holly Club of Joliet is one of the oldest volunteer organizations in the United States?

  • Yes, we certainly are. Holly Club of Joliet—the oldest service organization in Joliet, Illinois—was founded in the same decade as the Red Cross and United Way, six years before Rotary Club, and more than a decade before Kiwanis International and Lions International.
