An Announcement from Your Publishers
Five years ago, after retiring from our respective careers, we chose Holliston as our new home to be close to our daughter’s family (meaning grandchildren). Our retirement dreams included leisure time and travel to explore new places. Although not a thought when formulating our retirement dreams, The Holliston Reporter became our obsession, and we have gladly given this particular retirement project our all. Our work on the Holliston Reporter has been a pleasure: we have immersed ourselves in the community, learning about and enjoying its history, people and events.
As we emerge from the isolation of the pandemic, we, like many, have a renewed appreciation for life and all that it offers. For us, that means finding a balance between our Reporter work—staying in touch with Holliston— and our planned retirement lifestyle.
Beginning next Sunday, August 1, we will publish new content to the Holliston Reporter site three times per week: Sunday, Tuesday, and Friday. As we currently average about 15 posts per week, we still expect to deliver the same amount of content—just posted across fewer days—giving us some getaway time.
The reality of our time is that we are never truly off-line. Zoom continues to allow us to cover Town committee and board meetings—either live or recorded. Obituaries will be posted as they come in and urgent items will be posted as soon as possible.
- Sundays will include: the weekly calendar, Civics Sunday (as appropriate), milestones (other than obits, and other contributions.
- Tuesdays will include: Select Board meeting, Fire Log, and other contributions.
- Fridays will include: Real Estate (2nd and 4th), sports, and other contributions.
We always welcome content with direct relevance to Hollistonians. The more people that help cover our town, the more we all know. Please consider being a periodic reporter!
