2012 Celebrate Holliston_Opening Ceremony

Celebrate Holliston 2017 is scheduled for September 16th.

Kathy Shore, left, and Theresa Lamkin are the power behind the scene for the biggest event of the year, Celebrate Holliston. Together they opened the day's activities by welcoming everyone and gave a special thanks to Bill Sheehan of Jensen Sheehan Insurance for his dedication to to the event from the very first CH many years ago.

First to take the stage was high school sophmore Jordan Kruk to sign the National Anthem in the video above.

Selectman Kevin Conley had the pleasure of presenting Andy Porter, right, with the Selectmens' Proclamation recognizing Andy as Citizen of the Year for 2102. Andy's list of activities in support of the town and its residents is long and represents years of volunteer and elective work. Lions Club, Selectman, Finance Committee, and voice of the Panthers football are but a few of the items on his impressive list.

Representative Carolyn Dykema presented Andy with a proclamation from the state's House of Representatives, and

Senator Karen Spilka presented the state Senate's proclamation to Andy.

Andy thanked just about everyone on the planet for their support and encouraged residents of Holliston to volunteer.

Selectman Jay Leary presented the Selectmens' proclamation to Citizen of the Year Pam Zicko. Jay served on the finance Committee with Pam for many years and applauded her dedication to serving the town in many ways.

Pam also received proclamations from Representative Dykema and

from Senator Spilka.

Pam was extremely happy to be honored as Citizen of the Year. Pam also encouraged residents to volunteer in any capacity. Her constant smile was contageous. Even Andy managed a smile as she thanked everyone for the honor.

Congressman Edward Markey stepped up to congratulate Andy and Pam and wished everyone a great day.

More on the activities of Celebrate Holliston tomorrow.

PS. Congratulations to Holliston for receiving America in Bloom's Heritage Award. Mary Greendale will have a few words about that on Monday.

I had the best day at the best event ever in the best town ever.

I think the parade was great - but I believe that they should not allow politics into it. By that I mean no candidates should be allowed to have people with signs.

HR,thank you for the wonderful coverage of this year's event. It is truly an honor and a pleasure to put this event together. I want to send out a HUGH Thank You to all the wonderful Holliston High and RAMS students who helped us out. the town should be so proud of the generation we, as a community, are raising. An amazing and dedicated bunch. See you next year.
