The Holliston Newcomers Club was excited to host its annual Activities Fair open to all on Sunday October 1st.  Our own local Town Green at the First Congregational Church was the perfect venue on such a warm and wonderful autumn day.  Kids of all ages enjoyed the Bounce House, Face Painting, refreshments, treats, raffle prizes and games.  The Newcomers Club showcased many social and civic events that take place in and around Holliston.   Families visited our tables that displayed Book Club, Children’s Playgroups, Ladies Escapes, Dinner Club, Food Pantry Drives, Community Outreach and many other such activities.  The HNC executive board and committee members were on hand to chat with existing and new members and to answer any questions.  This was a great but casual and informative event where everyone could learn about what the club has to offer and socialize with other members.  For more information, please visit
