Outsider Takes Note of Holliston
by From the Publisher's Desk 5/31/12
A casual visitor sent a note to the Town Clerk expressing their impression of Holliston.
This note confirms what we all know and appreciate.
My family and I just spent Memorial Day weekend in the Lexington area for the Needham soccer tournament. It was a hot, scattered weekend as we tried to scramble multiple children to multiple fields throughout the area for some very exciting games. One such field was located in Holliston and as I was unfamiliar with the area, we were entirely focused on the GPS and getting to the right field.
As we entered the town, however, we could not help but slow and take our time as we were greeted with not only a picturesque landscape with a beautiful downtown, but the flags and names of the military personnel on each telephone pole was very moving. They continued on to the side roads to the field as well, and my children and I were suddenly silent as we took in the meaning of these flags.
I wanted to thank the beautiful town of Holliston not only for hosting us for soccer, but for reminding us all to take the time out of our busy three day weekend to remember the significance of our Memorial Day and the sacrifices that have been made for us.
Sometimes it is just the littlest thing that carries the greatest meaning. Thank you for listening and thank you for caring.
