May 29, 2018

Parade Marshal Peter Gullinitz with eagle Scouts Harrison Smith and Alex Walters led the parade frrom the VFW post on Woodland Street.

The Ghelli family followed in their Model A Ford, their brother Tommy had plans to restore the now gleaming antique before he entered the army. Thomas Ghelli was killed in action 50 years ago this year.

Vincent Trunfio, commander of the VFW, drove other veterans in the parade.

Selectmen Jay Marsden & Mark Ahronian marched together in the parade and earlier at both cemeteries.

The Police Department was well represented.

The Clan Sutherland Pipe Band made an appearance for a second year.

I am so proud to see the large turn out of Holliston's younger generation. The combined band and all the scouts. This bodes well for the town and the future of our Memorial Day Ceremonies. Thank you all from the Holliston Memorial Day Committee.

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?
