LightUp Holliston Plugging Ahead

by Bobby Blair
October 26, 2018

The newly orgainized LightUp Holliston Committee met Monday night at Chairman Ed Daniels' Vesta office on Woodland Street. The committee was formed to save the holiday lighting display in the downtown area which were formerly put up by the Lions Club. The lights along with decorative lanterns hung from utility poles all have seen their better days.

Daniels announced Monday night that while the groups goal of raising $5,000 had been met, that amount won't allow the committee to replace all the hanging lanterns. Those lanterns are being replaced with illuminated snowflakes. The group plans to make "the Rome wasn't built in a day" endeavor a multi-year undertaking.

Committee members discussed types of lights, color and length of string lights. Daniels thanked major donors Middlesex Saving, the Downtown Marigold Project, Galvin Electric & HHS Alumni for their contributions along with those who donated to a go-fund-me site. That site is here if town residents wish to donate:  https://www.gofundme.com/lightup-holliston?fbclid=IwAR13Qir0Pt9iAFOIuyEzkyJ_50Nrt1oY1RL3pn2_Wukuax8EZlnZMdXJACw
