A Poem for Late Summer

Our Lake, Once Named Wennakeening

Our Lake, Once Named Wennakeening

 
 
Rimmed by fragrant pine and tall oaks
Maples orange and gold in fall
Background for its calming waters
Wennakeening calls to us
 
Canada geese by the hundreds
Mallard ducks and one bald eagle
Thirsty deer drink at its shore line
Wennakeening calls to us
 
Named “pleasant” lake by ancient ones
Providing home for hefty bass
Hiding under clustr’ing lilies
Wennakeening calls to us
 
Cooling off in chilly deepness
Sitting on warm sandy beaches
Tending to graves of those passed on
Wennakeening calls to us
 
Summer sun lights dancing water
Blown by everchanging breezes
Stirring hearts to fond rememb’ring
Wennakeening calls to us

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.
