7207 Holliston to Kenya Saturday Fundraiser

by Paul Saulnier
September 14, 2018

Building a soccer field in Kenya is not easy but a few Holliston families are willing to do whatever it takes.

Saturday the 7202 organizers held a field day at the HYSA grounds on Marshall Street. HYSA donated a section of their fields for the event.

Above, Kim Collins, holds one of the size 4 soccer balls with the 7207 logo that will be available for purchase at Fiske's ($15.00) along with tee shirts ($15.00) and Euro stickers ($2.00). All proceeds go towards funding the soccer field in Kenya.

Above, Agatha McEachern, Kim Collins and Nichole Dickinson have been part of the planning team to construct a soccer field at a school in Kenya.

"Make one. Send one" The Letters to Kenya booth was staffed by, left to right, Kiley Robinson, Lucy Snow and Sienna Robie. The idea is to send a card to a kid in Kenya from Holliston and maybe make a new friend. Kiley and Sienna are both going to help build the soccer field. Below the pins on the map represent the countries of origin of people that have contributed to the effort, making it a truly international effort.

Carol Fassino, above, owner of Fair Trade Caravans, was selling items made by people paid a fair wage for their work. Carol explained that the Fair Trade Federation certifies that items sold are made by artisans who are paid a decent wage. Carol was donating a portion of her sales to the 7202 project. According to the Fair Trade website, " Fair trade terms provide farmers and artisans with a better set of trading standards that allow them the opportunity to improve their lives and plan for their future. Fair trade offers consumers a powerful way to reduce poverty through their every day shopping."  For more information about this program go to: https://www.fairtradecaravans.com/

Gina Tarara-Woods brought her booth, Imagine That, to the event. She gave a portion of her income to the 7202 cause.

She spent the day adorning anyone who sat in her chair with face paintings and glitter.

Crossfit Firewall is new to Holliston, having set up on Jeffery Ave in Lowland Industrial Park in 2017. On hand today were, left to right, Mike Carvalho, Jillian and Natalie Sawan and Anthony Natoli. They set up a variety of courses on the field for kids to run, compete and demonstrate athletic skills.

A popular event was kicking a soccer ball that stuck to the target - darts with soccer balls.

HPD's Officer Bryan DiGiorgio put his radar detector to good use tracking speeding soccer balls.

The fastest speed recorded was 77 mph by an adult (Cam) and 66 mph by a kid (Oliver). Both an arrestable violation on any street in Mudville.

Nichole Dickinson, Traci Robie and Kim Collins kept watch over activities on Saturday.
