Conservation Associates Honor Joseph Cohen

What can you say that will acknowledge 50 years of quiet service to the Town of Holliston?

August 23, 2017. Members of the Holliston Conservation Associates gathered to thank Joe Cohen for his 50 years of working to educate residents of the value of Holliston's natural environment. He was appointed to the Conservation Commission and served as a member for many years before forming the Conservation Associates.

Also attending were, left to to right, Karen Fung, Gordon Maxfield, and Donna and Steve Cohen from Hopkinton

Marc Connelly made the first presentation to Joe, recognizing his 50 years of service.

Marc reminded everyone that Joe personally paid for the development and printing of the map that documents Holliston's conservation land.

Shirley Melle read the proclamation from Representative Carolyn Dykema and Senator Karen Spilka.

Selectman Jay Marsden presented Joe with a formal Thank You to Joe for his years of service to the town.

 

Joe thanked everyone for honoring him this night. He said he enjoyed working with everyone over the years. Now 78 years old he said that he never let Multiple Sclerosis affect his life. He concluded with the word "mensch" (a person of integrity and honor,) which defines Joe perfectly.

Congrats Joe and many thanks for all you did for Holliston. It was a pleasure to have served with you on the Conservation Commission Associates back in its infancy. You have done so much for the town so quietly. So glad our paths crossed. We are wishing you all the best. Deb & John Moore
