Holliston Police Host A Feast

by Chris Cain
December 5, 2018

For the 30th year in a row, the Holliston Police Association with support from the Holliston Police Department's Command Staff, hosted a a fantastic meal for seniors.  The luncheon was held at the Holliston Senior Center.  Since the seniors were receiving a gift from the police, the luncheon guests were asked to bring a donation for the Holliston Food Pantry.

In the far right corner of the above photo can be seen just some the non-perishable items brought for the food pantry.  The Holliston seniors sure know how to 'pay it forward.'

 

SGT Glen Dalrymple, speaking on behalf of Chief Stone who was out of town with his family, welcomed all the guests and thanked the seniors for their continuing support of the Holliston Police.  SGT Dalrymple is seen at the left in the photo below.

SGT Matt Waugh (fourth from the right above) spoke on behalf of the members of the Holliston Police Association and added his welcome to all who were in attendance.

Since the police were paying for the meal, they had a few 'commercial announcements' about programs available to seniors.  SGT Dalrymple meets monthly at the Senior Center for coffee and discussion on various law enforcement topics.  SGT Waugh is the lead instructor for the Holliston PD's Citizens Police Academy.  The academy meets once per week for a few weeks covering a wide range of law enforcement topics and tactics - culminating in a ride-along with an officer on patrol. Many in the audience were Police Academy 'graduates.'  He invited those who have not yet participated in the Academy to sign up for next Spring's class.

Then it was time to dine.  The police officers in attendance manned the buffet line and served the meal they had acquired from Out Post Farm.  Even though it was just eleven days since Thanksgivng, turkey with all the fixings - including pie - tasted mighty fine.

Many thanks to the Holliston Police Department for all they do to keep us all safe - and well fed!

Oh What A Night

Judging by the families traveling between Blair Square and Cross Street, this was the best First Night Trail Walk yet. Firepits, ice sculpture, hot cider, hot dogs, snacks, and ice cream greeted the throngs who turned out for the Friends of Holliston Trail's annual gathering. (Publisher's Note: This article is a repost of yesterday's feature since the Cub Publisher pushed the wrong button!)
