In The Square - Week 8
by Bobby Blair 10/7/12
A dozen hearty, civic-minded, and community-spirited bulb planters labored downtown on Saturday morning ...
All 11,000 spring bulbs are not in the ground yet, but then again the Hanging Gardens of Babylon weren't created in a day either. A day off from my usual duty of selling dahlias in front of the Superette, Cassie Donlan Colburn subbed for me while I joined others in preparation for spring.
A mix of different colored daffodils and red tulips will bloom next April in front of the First Congregational Church.
Time to trade that Red Sox t-shirt in for a Pat's one, Pat Fuller.
Susan Heavner (forefront), after cleaning gravestones in the Central Burial Ground this summer, came out to give a few more hours of community service to the town.
Members of Mt. Hollis AF&AM took time out to improve the front of their lodge with a planting of spring bulbs donated by the American Legion Downtown Marigold Project.
And the new park on Central Street will be brilliant come the spring of 2013 with the planting of hundreds of bulbs. The Holliston Public Library also received 200 spring bulbs for planting.
