Scouts Tackle Burial Ground Border

by Bobby Blair
July 4, 2018

It all began as an Eagle Scout project for Lucas Pocher but involved many more entities  than just himself. Pocher below left dumps dug up sod on an Ahronian Landscape truck borrowed for the day. The border along the Central Burial Ground next to town hall will now match the border in front of the 1st Congregational Church. The huge project included soil from the highway department, a large donation from the Downtown Marigold Project via a very generous resident, additional funds from Holliston in Bloom and equipment and oversight from Ahronian Landscape. 

 

Mike Tyman right, who was part of the process on Sunday morning told the HollistonReporter.com that he had "carnival hangover". Mike is a member of the Holliston Lion's Club and was out till 1 pm securing electrical outlets.

Frank Chanberlain who serves as the town's Chairman of the Community Preservation Committee on this day instructed his son on the finer tips of digging a hole.

Selectman Mark Ahronian and Joe Pocher, dad of Eagle Scout propective Lucas labored in the 90 degree heat.

America in Bloom judges will be in town soon and will surely be given a tour of this newest town project. In all twenty new hydrangea's were planted.
