Police Station Planting

by Bill Tobin
May 18, 2016

The Holliston Police Station grounds are now well prepared for the America in Bloom judges coming in July, thanks to the dedicated workers of Boy Scout Troop 73, members of Holliston in Bloom and the Garden Club and donations of plants and flowers.

Sunday morning, May 15th was the day for volunteers organized to make the flower beds at the police station attractive and appealing for the America in Bloom judges coming to Holliston on July.

Members of Troop 73, under the leadership of Eagle Scout candidate, Brandon Battick prepared  the beds for planting.

Brandon prepared for the day by loading the PW plants onto Ahronian trucks to bring to the police station.

The Scouts did have help from parents and friends too, including Selectman Jay Marsden, above left.

 

Mulch, donated by Ahronian Landscaping, was spread in the flower gardens after the new plants were in place.

Kathy Shore, co-chair of Holliston in Bloom, and Garden Club president Jill Malcolm did their part in beautifying the site.

Thanks to the dedication of volunteers from the Garden Club, Scouts and friends the Police Station is now a handsome site.

 

Scout Brandan Battick of Troop 73 has organized his fellow scouts to work on this, his Eagle Scout project. Above are members of the Troop working on the project, Chris Foster, John Bell, Harrison York, Jack Loughlin, Ian Davis, Liam Buntenbah, Drew Dykema, Owen Bulmer, David Touchett and Brandon Battick (names are random)

Lt. Craig Denman presented Brandon Battick with a Certificate of Appreciation from Chief John Moore and members of the Holliston Police Department.  Brandon is a 17 year old student at Holliston High working towards his Eagle badge.

This program was made possible thanks to the volunteers, and the Holliston in Bloom Committee for donating marigolds, the town flower, Anne Huntington and Lorna Cohen for donating the Proven Winners shrubs and perennial flowers. Ahronian Landscaping for compost, bark mulch, grass seed and fertilizer. Mary Greendale donated hostas that were delivered to the site by Garden Club President Jill Malcolm.

There is still much to be done before our town is ready to be judged in July.
