Trophy Visits Holliston

by Bill Tobin
December 21, 2013

The 2013 World Series was a popular guest on Saturday.

Holliston residents had an opportunity to see and be seen with the World Series Trophy.

 The Holliston Police Association teamed up with the Red Sox to bring the World Series Trophy to Holliston on Saturday, December 21st at the Holliston High Gymnasium for a photo opportunity.

A ticket donation to the Police Assocation allowed the privilege to visit and take pictures with the trophy. Sgt. Glenn Dalrymple, left, with Sgt. Dave Gatchell, assisted by Samantha Gatchell, accepted the donations.

And then the line formed for the photo op. About 250 visitors checked in between 7:00pm and 8:30, and the trophy was in the gym until 9:00.  A good turn out, as we do not know if and when we will have the opportunity again.

Families were proud to pose with the trophy, a once-in-a-lifetime.

Yours truly and grandson Patrick took advantage of the opportunity too.

This was a great way to welcome the first day of winter.
