Holiday Stroll, 2011

by Bill Tobin
November 26, 2011

Today is going to be a fun day for kids of all ages.

The fun begins at 1:00 PM and continues until 7:00 PM.  Plan your day now.

Saturday, November 26th is going to be a great day in Holliston as the 10th annual Holiday Stroll sponsored by the Holliston Business Association  kicks off the festive holiday season of 2011.

The festivities begin at 1:00 with a Petting Zoo on Congregational Church green.  The pets will be welcoming petters until 5:00 that evening.

The Prana Center will be perfoming selections from their production of Annie at 1:30, 1:50 and 2:10---a great take.

At the Library, Pamela Printer-Parsons' musical adventure is designed to delight the senses and soothe the soul for kids and their caretakers at 2:00 and 4:00 PM. Don't miss it.

From 2-5 PM a Holiday Photo Booth will be at St. Mary's Hall for professional quality photos on a green screen with your choice of a holiday background, for $5.00 each.

Want a tattoo?  A professional temporary air brush tattoo with dozens of designs to choose from will be available at Fiske's from 2-5 PM.

Santa will arrive a the corner of Elm and Washington by fire engine at 3:00 PM and will deliver a moving rendition of Clement Moore's A Visit from St. Nicholas ('Twas the night before Christmas---).

From 3 to 3:30 there will be caroling on the green.  All are welcome to join the choristers.

At 3:30 there is a Magic Show, for all ages in St. Mary's Hall

The First Congregational Church handbell ringers will hold two rehearsal style perfomances in the sanctuary of the church at 4 and 5 PM. A holiday boutique toi benefit the handbell choir will be held in the vestibule from 1-7PM.

The Balloon Man will make special balloon animals, just for you at the Grapevine.

The Wine House will host a complimentary beer and wine tasting at their store on Central Street, to anyone over the age 21.  Sorry, kids.

Drop into the Gilman Room at the Library from 4:30-6:30 to hear a relaxing story or do arts and crafts.

The Steeple Pilots, the First Congregational Church teen band, will perform rockin' holiday and pop tunes in the sanctuary at 6 pm.

During the entire Stroll, Jordan Hall will host Ahronian Productions D-J, singer and MC and many local merchants offering their goodies: Bertucci's, FCC Arts and Crafts, Little Bee Farm, Lost Art of Life, Mudville Pottery, Paws 2 Celebrate, Pete's Pet Care, Serena's Groom Room and State Quarters.

Hop aboard the TROLLEY, new this year from 2-6:00PM, at  "T" stops: Washington & Charles, Washington & Elm, Church & Railroad, Hollis Plaza on Central and the Fiske's Parking Lot on Central Street.

Again this year, there is the Holiday  Stroll Passport. Pick up a passport from any local merchant, get an offical passport stamp from at least 15 participating retailers and be eligible to enter a raffle for one of ten $25 gifts offered by these Holliston merchants. When competed, drop off the passport at any of the participating retailers. 

HAPPY HOLIDAY STROLL  HAVE FUN... thank you, Holliston Business Association

Old Barns

Old Barns Barns, barns, every where barns. But unfortunately they are in tough shape. A recent visit to the Great North Woods region in the Northeast Kingdom, very remote and rural, brought an awareness of the abandoned and vanishing barns. I noted at least a dozen of these structures within a radius of about fifteen miles, and I am sure there are many more. This is an update of an article published a few years ago. A recent trip to Vermont confirmed that the old barns are getting older.
