Dear Neighborhood Council Presidents & Neighborhood Commissioners,
Our group lost an esteemed member last week in the passing of Hollis Mays on July 28, 2016.
Hollis was the 2016 Harold Koon Volunteer Award recipient, past president of Lakeside Neighborhood Association and their current representative to the Neighborhood Council. She was a master gardener and tireless volunteer for the protection and beautification of the lake between Lakeside and the Cross Creek community. She was a friendly, persistent, and knowledgeable activist for responsible development of stormwater infrastructure systems and urban forestry initiatives to enhance and protect the urban environment. She was a career employee of the United States Postal Service and the wife of Niall Mays. Lastly, she was a cherished friend of the City of Charleston who will be greatly missed.
