Holliston Police Host A Feast

by Chris Cain
December 5, 2018

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!

The Holiday Bells Were Ringing

"O Night Divine," one of the songs played during the Holiday Handbell Concert at the First Congregational Church, was an apt description of the entire experience. A cold clear winter's (Dec 1st is the start of meterological winter) night with the moon and stars visible in the sky set the mood for what was in store for all who attended the performance.

The Much-anticipated Mudville Traffic Study is Here!

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?

But Wait, There's More Stroll!

Mary Greendale's earlier article (with photos from Ken Robinson) got us a first look at this year's Holliston Business Association's Holiday Stroll. Ken and Mary were not the only Holliston Reporter folks to cover this annual downtown hit. Here's some additional photos and narrative that this reporter spotted during the course of the day and evening. Isabelle Gagne, wearing an elfin hat from TD Bank, was spotted on one of the free trolleys shuttling strollers to the many venues. Selectman John Cronin was acting as Trolley Captain on this excursion. Selectman Jay Marsden was manning the other trolley.
