Happy 100th birthday, Sallie Mae Hollis!

Alachua Chronicle wishes a very happy 100th birthday to Sallie Mae Hollis, a veteran and business owner!

Name updated at 5:15 p.m. in response to a message from the person who originally notified us of the milestone birthday.

  • Happy
    Birthday Miss Sallie Mae. You’ve always been an inspiration to Black women in Alachua County and Gainesville Florida as a business owner. I can recall the time that my sister Rose Rayford trained and worked in your Salon on 5TH Avenue. You were kind and always made time to talk with me when I came to your salon. I am honored for this opportunity to thank you for being a trail blazer for others to follow.

  • Happy Birthday! Bet she has some stories she could tell. If only we could all look that good at that age.

  • We do need to record the stories of such wonderful people that have reached this age, look absolutely beautiful and have been successful.

    God Bless and Hallelujah!
