The Mayah's St Patty's Day Bar and Bat Mitzvah

by Paul Saulnier
March 18, 2018

This annual event to raise money for local causes doubles as an excuse to fry PJ's bacon and that of our local politicians.

Ever the professional public speaker, the Mayah picks up the mike and asks "What the Hell is this?"

This annual event to raise money for local causes doubles as an excuse to fry PJ's bacon and that of our local politicians.

Ever the professional public speaker, the Mayah picks up the mike and asks "What the Hell is this?"

Between the 100 tickets sold and the silent auction, the roast garnered about $1,000 for both the Friends of the Community Farm and HIB (Holliston in Bloom Committee).

Above , left to right, Marilyn Horn, Jeff Ritter and Ann LeVasseur look over the silent auction items donated by residents and businesses. Later Town Administrator Jeff Ritter (no relation to Tex) took to the mike to announce that he is 100% Irish and is a citizen of both Ireland and USA. He said that President Trump doesn't know whether to deport him or import him. After which Jeff told a few really bad jokes that Kevin Conley gave to him, since Kevin couldn't be there to tell them in person.

HIB co-chairs Cherry Fenton, above left, and Kathy Shore thanked everyone for their support of HIB's continuing efforts to make Holliston a beautiful place to live: Please click on the link: https://youtu.be/_qypOwdBtsk

Senator Karen Spilka announced that she is running for Senate President and then went on to recite an even funnier poem that she wrote especially for this occassion. Please click on the lionk to hear Senator spilka's poem: https://youtu.be/qyBE6Qgb4v0

Again this year, Representative Carolyn Dykema dressed the Mayor in her after hours club attire and sang to him from her heart as Selectman-elect John Cronin looked pleased that he was not included. Please click on the link to listen to Representative Dykema sing her song about Holliston: https://youtu.be/CptTj8cOYsI

Selectman Jay Marsden, who showed up with a guitar that he bought from an Ikea seconds store, made sure that Cronin didn't feel felt out any longer. Please click on the link to hear Jay vent his displeasure with everybody and everything: https://youtu.be/DUc-o_CX7OI

FinCom chair Ken Szajda, Z for short, thanked the event organizers for actually inviting him to speak this year and arranging to have a few other attendees sit at his table. Ken really felt welcomed. That is until he roasted just about every committee in town. To hear Ken's sage words of wisdom, please click on the link: https://youtu.be/3R1AHmG8G00

Closing out the show were last minutes speakers Jeff Ritter, Town Administrator, and John Cronin, candidate for next year's roast as rookie Selectman. Cherry Fenton wraps it all up: https://youtu.be/Nbdwxs6-7S4

The Much-anticipated Mudville Traffic Study is Here!

by Chris Cain

When I studied science in school (in addition to reading, writing, and 'rithmetic of course), the professor would say, "In God We Trust, All Others Bring Data." Holliston's Board of Selectmen must have gone to the same school because they wanted data before considering any traffic volume and speed mitigation strategies in Mudville. The McMahon group recently delivered their 104 page report to the Selectmen (and to the public via the town's website). https://www.townofholliston.us/sites/hollistonma/files/uploads/mcmahon_mudville_traffic_pattern_analysis_memo_2018-11-07.pdf Rather than having everyone read the entire report, below are some of the data presented in a 'did you know' format. Did you know the current speed limit on all streets in Mudville is exactly the same as on Route 16 in downtown Holliston - 30 mph. Looking at the compilation photo above, what might strike you - besides that there are no speed limit signs anywhere in Mudville?
