May 5, 2017

Holliston in Bloom members met Thursday eve at the Historical Society to review plans for the upcoming summer planting season. Co-chair Kathy Shore announced that representatives of  America in Bloom (AIB) will visit Holliston on June 5th to preview the proposed walking route for visitors from across the country who will attend the National AIB Symposium in October.

The general route of the tour was discussed, which includes downtown, Mudville, the Water Street Mill and the rail trail. Lunch for 200 guests will be served under a tent at Goodwill Park and include New England favorites such as Boston Cream Pie, cranberry juice, lobster rolls and Cape Cod Potato Chips.

On Friday morning a crew from Tree Specialists Inc. of Holliston were busy on a Holliston in Bloom Project of planting 50 hydrangea bushes in front of the First Congregational Church. The plants are a lime/white in color.

Ben Tartakoff had the honor of unpotting the plants and lowering them into their new home.

Meanwhile PHD's (post hole diggers) James Secco of Tree Specialists and John Moore of Holliston in Bloom do the grunt work.

Over at the Arch Street Bridge 16 window boxes (8 each side of the bridge) were hung early Friday morning by a crew from the (DMP) Downtown Marigold Project.

Tim Agnew left, and Dave Boudreau fasten boxes to the Exchange Street Bridge.

The Marigold Project will be planting the 74 boxes deployed around town in early June with Proven Winner Petunia's which are on order from Laconia N.H. The window box project was made possible by donations from townspeople and a grant from the Newcomers Club.
