Community Challenge

You see things; and you say “Why?” But I dream things that never were; and I say “Why not?” - George Bernard Shaw 1856 - 1950.

Holliston in Bloom and the Downtown Marigold Project have teamed up to challenge those townspeople with a little creativity. Sited along Washington Street from Fairlane Way to 560 Washington Street along the guard rails stands 23 window boxes whose decorative mums have seen better days. The challenge for residents is to adopt and decorate a window box for the holiday season using your talents, imagination, and unique ideas. Linden Street resident Bonnie Conroy and the Downtown Marigold Project have already begun the process by adding greenery and bows to some of the boxes.

No permission is needed to proceed,, all we ask is that you keep your decorating tasteful. There are 23 boxes in total.

Yes! I pass the bridge daily to and fro to work and enjoy and know that I'm fortunate to enjoy that view. I'll look forward to the greenery added!

Thank you to Kevin Drake of Outpost Farm who has volunteered to spruce up the Arch Street Bridge with a little greenery.
