The legacy of Karolina Holtrey, and daughter, Carolyn, continues to support the community of Frankfort through three separate endowments created in their name in 2000.
Supporting the area's library, skilled nursing facility and educational needs, the Holtrey Endowments are core to the fabric of life in Benzie County and a testament to the foresight, kindness and care of its donors.

The Veliquette name is known well in the Elk Rapids area and the family’s matriarch, Marjory, was committed to giving. One of Marjory’s lasting legacies is her commitment and passion to the Miss Elk Rapids Scholarship Program, as well as to the Community Foundation Miss Elk Rapids Scholarship Endowment, which supports scholarship awards each year for pageant winners.
In honor of Marjory, her family, friends, and community, have given to create the Marjory Veliquette Memorial Scholarship Endowment – a permanent fund that will award a scholarship each year to a young woman in the Miss Elk Rapids Scholarship Program that has a little bit of Marjory in her… someone with a servant’s heart and committed to the spirit of giving. A fitting tribute for Marjory that will ensure her memory will be honored year after year, for generations to come.
