Super Bowl Weekend, Oh Well...

by Bill Tobin
February 5, 2012

Super Bowl weekend in Holliston is a lot of fun and excitement...

Souper soups, pancakes, hoagies and the Lions/HABA squares and the "no ice lake" combine to make a great time for all.

The weekend began with a variety of soups at the upper Town Hall to benefit the Holliston Pantry Shelf.

Bill Stickney collected donations for soup from over 200 diners.

Many volunteers made the evening run smoothly from kitchen workers, table attendants and of course the soup servers: l-r, Mike Cournoyer, HHS Principal, Kevin Conley, Selectman, Camille Kent and Ross Camiel, junior members of the Pantry Shelf Board. .

Desserts were special too.  Note the signature cookies baked by Jackie Dellicker.

The hall was filled to capacity, including diners on the stage.

Anna Dellicker and Sukhmani Khalsa dispensed soft drinks. Members of the Leos Club, National Honor Society,  and junior members of the Pantry Shelf Board spent many hours preparing the hall, serving and cleaning up.  Thank you, students.

 

Carl Damigella, President of the Pantry Shelf, thanked all the volunteers and donors for making the evening a great sucess.

Sunday morning was the time to enjoy pancakes (with or without chocolate chips) and sausages served at St. Mary's Hall by members of Troop 14, in recognition of Boy Scouts 102nd Anniversary.

Ben Cappello and Brian Jacobs welcomed all to the the breakfast.

The scouts and their leaders were the waiters of the day.

Following breakfast, it is time to pick up the Hoagie prepared at the Masonic Hall by members of the Holliston Masons to enjoy later on during the big game. 

 

Each Hoagie is a full meal as shown above. 

Aline Hunt has been helping with the Hoagies since she was six years old, or a total of nine years, with her Dad. She is a member of Rainbow in Natick .

Master of the Masons, Matt Bowie organizes and supervises the annual Hoagie day on Super Bowl Sunday.

The Holliston Lions Club and the Holliston Athletic Boosters Association teamed up this year to sponsor the Big Squares Board to raise money for their respective causes. SuperBowl Sunday afternoon at Caseys's was the time to draw  the square numbers to equalize the opportunity for those owning squares.

 

The scores at the superbowl game determine the winners.  Knowledge of football is not required, just good old fashioned luck. The odds are great, 1 in 25 chance to win a prize and 1 in 100 chance to win the grand prize of $1,500.  Prize money will be awarded at the end the first quarter of the game, at half time, at the end of the third quarter and, of course, at the end of the game.

At the end of the first quarter, the holder of the square with the digits of the score will win $500, and the prize at half time is $750. Another $500 will be given out at the end of the third quarter, and $1,500 will go to the person with the right square of the final score. It is possible that the same person could win more than once, too.
