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.
