Lilly Lines by Jack Barlick    814-886-4694


Didn’t the year go fast? Just a few days until New Years Eve, it is Time to make some resolutions. I never make any, as I won’t keep them anyhow. Have a Happy New Year!



The Lilly-Washington Historical Society 2014 calendar can be purchased at Galls Insurance Agency during the 9-5 business hours Monday through Friday.

Christmas Bulbs from the Lilly Decorating Committee from past years can also be purchased at Galls for $4 each or three for $10, Most of the past years are available. No ball was produced this year.



It was a very sad time in Lilly the past week as there were several deaths. First, Ashley Myers died in an auto accident. She was a 21 year old mother of a young son. Deepest sympathy is extended to her family and many friends. Then Roberta Claar passed away after a lengthy illness. Every one in town knew and loved Roberta who always had a pleasant smile and a friendly greeting. Sympathy is extended to her family and friends

Patricia Mock of Twin Rocks also died last week. She was the wife of Larry Mock who was from Lilly and graduated from Lilly High in 1961.
