2022 New Year’s Brunch At Holly Hedge Estate
Our 2022 New Years Brunch is scheduled for Sunday January 2, 2022
Holly Hedge Estate is a valued business in the Solebury community. After a difficult year for all businesses in 2020, we at STHS are happy to push our event to the second day of the year instead of New Year’s Day so Holly Hedge can host a wedding. We thank them for the years they have kept the 1st of the year open for us to host the brunch. We will send out an email with reservation information in November.
We wish all of the businesses in Solebury and the local community a very successful year.
