The Wall That Heals Will Pass Through Holliston

by Stephen Bradford
August 17, 2019

The 'Wall That Heals,' a 3/4 size replica of the Vietnam Memorial in Washington, D.C., will be passing through Holliston on Tuesday afternoon around 3:15 p.m.  Please join the Holliston Veterans at the Town Hall then to honor the memory of those who made the ultimate sacrifice.

The Wall That Heals will be leaving Wayland at 3PM on Tuesday, August 20th on its way to Bellingham. The route (126) that it takes will bring it through downtown Holliston. The Veterans of Holliston are planning to stand at Town Hall beginning around 3:15PM as a show of respect for our over 58,000 Brothers and Sisters listed on the Wall, including Holliston's John Chase, Thomas Ghelli and Clifford LaChance.

We invite citizens of Holliston to join us at Town Hall or this. Unfortunately, with traffic at that time of day, we have no way of knowing the exact time it will come through here.

Steve Bradford, Commander; Holliston American Legion Post 47

Dave DeGanne, Commander; Holliston VFW Post 8507

Civics Sunday: Celebrate Holliston Honors 2019 Citizens of the Year

by Yvette Cain

Celebrate Holliston, a town fund-raising non-profit organization established in 1991, honors volunteers Bea Hait and Ken Henderson as its Citizens of the Year. It seems only logical since Celebrate Holliston donates its time, energy, and financial support to worthwhile town projects that it would seek out those among us who volunteer their time and energies to make our community a better place to live.
