Godfather of Volleyball to Be Featured Tonight at Wistariahurst Event
HOLYOKE — Tonight, Oct. 19, at 6 p.m. in the Carriage House at Wistariahurst, Libby Franck will discuss the life and work of Harold Friermood, perhaps best known as the individual who got volleyball into the Olympics, but also the man whose volleyball collection would eventually become the seed for the Volleyball Hall of Fame in Holyoke.
Friermood was a man who succeeded by doing what he loved and sharing his expertise and skills with others. Franck is his daughter and a gifted storyteller. Admission cost is $7 for the general public, $5 for museum members, and free for all students (with ID).
