Newcomers Club Organizes a Successful Easter Basket Project

by Frances Pleska
March 27, 2013

The Holliston Newcomers Club recently organized an Easter Basket Project to benefit the children of the Food Pantry.

Sixty-four brightly decorated Easter Baskets were filled with many items sure to make the children receiving them smile with delight.  Betsy Maxwell coordinated the project on behalf of the Holliston Newcomers Club and opened up her home as members dropped off many creative baskets throughout this past weekend.  Soon Betsy’s living room was filled with the blooming colors of spring.  All of the baskets were successfully delivered to the Food Pantry in time to celebrate Easter Sunday.

The Holliston Newcomers Club is a nonprofit organization that coordinates charitable, civic, educational and recreational events in the town of Holliston, MA.  Formed in 1969, our goal is to encourage membership  association, foster community spirit, help members meet fellow residents, and promote as well as participate in activities supporting our community.  For more information :  www.hollistonnewcomers.org   

 

                  (Just a few Easter Baskets -- more were arriving by the hour)

A big thank you to John at Fiske’s who offered a special discount to members of Holliston Newcomers as they stopped by to choose items for their baskets.
