A Village, A Strong Back & A Shovel

by Bobby Blair
September 15, 2017

Below, mums awaiting watering and planting. The heat is on quite literally and figurativley for those involved with America in Bloom's upcoming National Symposium at the end of the first week in October. With help from the Downtown Marigold Project, Garden Club and volunteers, Holliston in Bloom is attempting to spiff up our little corner of the world for visitors from across the country. Volunteers are needed to help plant. The photo below depicts only a portion of the mums to be planted, several more truck loads will be arriving on Friday morning.

If you'd like to imbibe in a little hometown pride please join us on Sunday morning September 17th at Town Hall at 9 am. All that's needed is a shovel and a willingness to help out. Anyone with a truck who can help transport the mums from Highland Street to downtown is also sorely needed. That logistics feat begins at 7 am. Several trips may be needed depending upon those who respond. You can contact this writer at mudvillemayor@gmail.com

Holliston in Bloom worker bees Jill Malcolm, PJ Kilkelly and Kathy Shore were on hand to receive 325 more mum's Friday morning at 7 am.

The inventory gets bigger as a second delivery is scheduled for late morning on Friday. The entire idea of having Holliston host a national symposium began when Mark Ahronian floated the idea at a Holliston in Bloom meeting some four years ago.
