Miss Elizabeth Anne Kellum was crowned Queen of the Holly Realm on Saturday, December 28, 2019, at Indian Creek Yacht and Country Club near Kilmarnock.

Miss Kellum was selected through popular vote by those attending the 124th Holly Ball. Miss Kellum will serve as queen until December at the 125th Holly Ball, the Tidewater Foundation’s fundraising arm.

Fourteen Northern Neck and Middle Peninsula area debutantes were presented at this year’s annual Holly Ball, reported Patricia Gallagher of the publicity committee.

Dr. Elizabeth Hinton “Sissy” Crowther of Reedville provided an eloquent oration for the gala event and crowned Miss Kellum. She succeeds reigning Queen Alyssa Summerville Booth, the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Robert Timothy Booth Sr. of White Stone.

Queen Kellum, a student at Christopher Newport University, is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Ralph Gray Barrack Jr. of Farnham and Mr. and Mrs. Thomas Kellum of Reedville. She was presented by her father, Mr. Kellum, and escorted by Jonathan P. Maupins.
