A Limerick for Holliston in Bloom


By Karen Spilka

See and hear Karen in the video above.

On Saturday March 11th both our representatives to the state house in Boston took part in the Annual St. Paddy's Breakfast & Political Roast at the Lutheran Church on Central Street.  Sen. Karen Spilka and Rep. Carolyn Dykema both used their talents to entertain the audience. Below we share Senator Spilka's creativity.

So Holliston buds in bloom,
Heading out of that winter-time Gloom.
3 times awarded best in its size-
5 blooms and we think Deb Moore's a prize,
The Symposium will be ours soon.

Thank you to the many volunteers,
Who so willingly work with their shears,
To build this jewel in MetroWest
Leaving no doubt that Holliston's best
And likely to be so for years.

So come in October for color and cheer.
So many folks will flock to right here.
Rail Trail, farm, 8 Arches, Blair Square -
No other town could ever compare.
Here's to the Circle of Champions next year!

Hurray Holliston!
