HR’s Outstanding Achievement Awards Presentation

by Chris Cain
December 17, 2018

As announced earlier, this year’s Holliston Reporter Outstanding Achievement Award recipients are Bea Hait and Stacey Raffi.  Recently ‘Mayor’ Bobby Blair, as publisher of the Holliston Reporter, made the presentations to these two deserving Hollistonians.  Members of the Holliston Reporter staff, family, and friends gathered to witness this prestigious event.

Stacey was up first.  Her William Tobin Award, in honor of HollistonReporter.com departed writer, recognizes her tireless efforts on the School Committee and other activities around town.  The ‘Mayor’ mentioned that every time he is at a civic event, there is Stacey.  Perhaps the correct adjective to describe Stacey is ubiquitous.

Bea received her William Tobin Award for the MANY things she does behind the scenes at the Historical Society, Gooch’s Corner, and in her ‘spare’ time, weeding the many floral displays around town.  A true ‘unsung hero’ in our community.  Of special note is Bea’s return from Vermont following the birth her fifth grandchild, Etta.  In true grandparent spirit, she wanted to stay in Vermont to help out.  Her daughter insisted she return to Holliston for this celebration of her service to the community.

Ann Tobin, Bill’s widow, was on hand to congratulate these worthy recipients.  She is seen below flanked by the awardees.

Please note the very dapper Donald Duck and Mickey Mouse tie Bobby sported for the occasion (he knew this would be a great photo op).

Those assembled lingered to chat with Bea and Stacey while enjoying coffee and cakes.

While the William Tobin Outstanding Achievement Award recipients are selected and awarded by the Holliston Reporter staff, nominations are welcomed from everyone in Holliston.  Please be on the lookout for folks like Bea and Stacey who very quietly work to make Holliston a better place to live.

Police Log for Week of June 9 - 15, 2019

by Paul Saulnier

Last week's lowlights include a rock party on Washington, a parade of one on Gretchen and one frustrated and creative driver solves the rush hour traffic problem down town (no he didn't shoot out the lights). Officers are taught to place a hand on the car as they approach. Why? Because if in the course of the stop the officer is murdered and the driver takes off, the officer's finger prints on the car will prove that he stopped the car.
