HBA Meets on Eve of Blizzard of 2013

by Bobby Blair
February 7, 2013

The Holliston Business Association (HBA) squeaked in a meeting Thursday night prior to the area being pummeled with a huge snow storm. Ironically one of the prime topics of the evening concerned the Spring Stroll and Casino night scheduled for April 27th and 26th respectively. John Paltrineri gave a prelude to events for the Stroll which include a chainsaw demonstration by former Holliston resident Jesse Green. While the statue of a small child commissioned by Paltrineri to be located in front of Fiske's store will unlikely be completed on the day of the Stroll, it will be completed in time for summertime customers  and Fiske's 150th birthday.

Businesses without store fronts will be able to rent space in Jordan Hall while pony rides will be available on the church green. Those wishing to hock wares are invited to rent a space at Blair Square for the First Annual Spring Stroll Flea Market. A dedication of a Blair Square sign being sculptured by Irish Natural Stone Company in Boston/Tubber Ireland will be dedicated on the morning of the Stroll. A full accounting of the events at the Stroll will be published in the April edition of the Local Town Pages (Holliston edition) as well as the HollistonReporter.com.

Each business present at the meeting was asked by President John Drohan to explain what makes them different from their competitors. Above Kate Lamontague of Kamala Botique explained to the group her tradition of giving back to the community by the sale of jewelry which helps support the food pantry.

The Casino Night will be "THE" Holliston social event of the year. Not only a great time with old and new friends, but a fundraiser for the Community Action Fund. Help your neighbor while having a great time.

It's great weather to be looking ahead to the stroll! The Prana Center will be performing free previews of our spring show, Hooray for Hollywood! Sorry to miss last night's meeting, sounds like a great way for the businesses to get to know more about each other.
