Holliston Remembers Its Veterans – COVID Style
For the past several years, Holliston has observed the Veterans Day holiday with a public ceremony and veterans’ luncheon. The luncheon has traditionally been sponsored by Holliston’s American Legion, VFW and Lions. While the pandemic cancelled the public portion of the observance, the sponsors made sure our Holliston veterans were remembered with a delicious meal.
Once again, the Legion, VFW, and Lions joined forces to deliver 62 meals to veterans in our community. The meals (above), prepared by TJ’s in Ashland, and paid for by the three groups, were accompanied by ice cream from TC Scoops and a goody bag of sweets provided by the Lions.
At 11:00 on the 11th day of the 11th month, the group assembled to distribute the meals, treats, and dessert.

Thank you Legion, VFW, and Lions members for keeping this tradition alive in this most difficult time.
We say thank to all veterans for your service and sacrifice to our nation!
