Doings on the Weekend

Seasonal greenery now festoons the fountain at Blair Square thanks to the efforts of Kathy Shore and Cherry Fenton of Holliston In Bloom.

 

The wrought iron planters downtown also received a makeover by Holliston In Bloom to usher in the changing of seasons.

Down on Rogers Road the barn at the community farm has seen better days. While its bones are sound, its skin has weathered for many a decade.

A new winter coat in the form of ship lap siding is just what Mother Nature prescribed. On the ladder is PJ Kilkelly and left Jim Tarelli, while Dennis Prefontaine feeds the saw. What makes this project more interesting is that the lumber for the siding was cut, milled and hewn right on the property.

Several days work by these volunteers makes a marked difference.

Upon arriving home on Saturday I noticed six cars in a row cutting up my side street - School St. Was there an accident downtown I wondered. Yikes, its the Holiday Stroll. I'm supposed to take a few pictures downtown.

Town hall was packed and a magic show was being held. Traffic was slow in the town center as strollers visited the many venues both inside and out.

The food trucks were doing a brisk business, all under mild temperatures.

The stroll concluded later in the day with the lighting of "Carolyn's Tree" at Blair Square Chairman of the Board of Selectmen Kevin Conley and Rep. Dykema both gave their blessing to the crowd.
