What seemed like a lifetime away just four short years ago is now right around the corner.

What seemed like a lifetime away just four short years ago is now right around the corner. Several hundred like minded community organizers, gardeners and horticulturalists will decend upon Holliston on October 7th for the America In Bloom National Symposium. Headquarters for the first weekend in October will be at the Sheraton Tara in Framingham.

Also making her way to Holliston on a overcast rainy Monday was Laura Kunkle, below, seated at a pot luck dinner at Holliston in Bloom's Co-Chair Kathy Shore's home. Kunkle is America In Bloom's Executive Director and comes from Columbus Ohio

Both AIB scouts were able to tour other venues which are scheduled for the 2017 Symposium including a trip to Boston and the Freedom Trail, Mt. Auburn Cemetery, Wellesley College and Mass. Horticultural's Elm Bank. The duo, accompanied by Shore and Holliston in Bloom's Cherry Fenton, then did a walk-thru of the planned Holliston tour. That tour will be centered around downtown and include town hall, the secret garden at the library, Goodwill Park, Water Street Mill, Casey at the Bat and Blair Square. Touring visitors will be hosted to lunch under a tent at Goodwill Park and a bus ride past the 8 Arch Bridge and a tour of Pinecrest Golf Course.
