The Process Has Begun for HIB

April 24, 2017

It's a long slog till October 7th when several hundred members of America in Bloom (AIB) from across the nation visit Holliston as part of AIB's National Symposium. AIB's webiste can be viewed here: http://www.americainbloom.org/ Holliston in Bloom's (HIB) site can be seen here: http://www.hollistoninbloom.org/

On Earth Day Saturday April 22nd a dozen volunteers cleaned out flower beds at the police station, town hall and 1st Congregational Church. The Drake Co. lent their truck to haul away the dead mums and leaves.

Jason Breslau and his children Alder and Autumn helped Dad around the town's Civil War Monument.

The entrance to Holliston from Sherborn was is sad shape but the Power Behind the Throne, aka Martha Conley, spent the morning clearing, grubbing and planting the area she has taken as her own. Selectman Conley said that he had to hose her down before he would let her back into the house. Not sure what she did with the sign.

Meanwhile Rita Bell, above, volunteered to help sell daffodils from the town's Community Farm on Rogers Road as a fundraiser. The Friends of the Holliston Community Farm https://hollistoncommunityfarm.org/  

The Friends will hold their next event "A Family Farm Day" at the Rogers Road location on June 11th.
