Passel of Petite Pumpkin Painters at Police Patrol

Sunday morning was damp and cool.  That did not hamper Holliston families from taking up the HPD’s invitation to visit their headquarters to decorate pumpkins.  Chief Stone and several other police personnel were on hand to welcome the extremely large turnout.  So large in fact, that at one point there was a ‘pumpkin 911 call’ for additional pumpkins.

 

Passel of Petite Pumpkin Painters at Police Patrol

Sunday morning was damp and cool.  That did not hamper Holliston families from taking up the HPD’s offer to visit their headquarters to decorate pumpkins.  Chief Stone and several other police personnel were on hand to welcome the extremely large turnout.  So large in fact, that at one point there was a ‘pumpkin 911 call’ for additional pumpkins.  

Two-year-old Bonnie Stone, shown below, demonstrated tremendous concentration as she turned her orange pumpkin into a blue orb – and no paint on her costume!  Her parents noted that young Bonnie is the the great-granddaughter of the well-known Hollistonian Bonnie Stone.

SGT Leurini and OFC Filadelfo appeared to be having a great time watching the young artists at work.  The officers reported that the pumpkins had been donated by three local farm stands: Out Post, Arcadian, and MacArthur's.

If art wasn’t your thing, there was a ‘touch-a-cruiser’ option.  One father was heard warning his son not to get used to sitting in the back seat!

Of course, public safety is what HPD is all about.  In that spirit, ample warnings were posted as the painters entered.

Several families appeared to be making it a day of pumpkin fun by combining the Police Patrol with the Great Pumpkin Walk.  The birthday cake customer was spotted at both locations.
