Sixth Annual Taste of Holliston
by The Staff 4/8/13
A brisk wind and temps in the 50's did not keep very many residents away from a great value and worthy cause.
The Taste of Holliston on Sunday April 7th at the Holliston Historical Society hosted over 200 guests who had the opportunity to feast, sample wine and socialize inside and out.
The Stickneys were greeting friends on the North portico, above, along with ...
... Charlie ("I've got your number") Russo, former Selectman Carl Damigella, and Theresa Lamkin, originator of A Taste of Holliston and now co-chair of the Celebrate Holliston Committee.
Arcadian Farm was one of the 21 local vendors offering tasty samples.
Nello's of Ashland had an assortment of main dishes like lobster ravioli.
Out Post Farm had a set up in the Asa Whiting House offering fresh turkey soup.
The Sherborn Inn was another house vendor. No one went hungry.
Later, the Paltrineris held court as they discussed plans for HBA's Spring Fling weekend to be held on April 27th and 28th.
Inside the barn, diners jockeyed for a seat after selecting from 21 food and drink stations located here or in the house.
Dave and Pam can always be counted on to help.
The barn was full of satisfied diners.
The Depot Package Store offered samples of fine wines.
Gelato was available from Dolce Tempo
Jing's Garden had a corner in the house.
The Twist Bakery and Cafe from Millis, above, was set up in the house.
Coffee and munchkins were for the taking from Dunks.
Newcomers President Fran Pleska and husband Robert came to support the society and sample a few of the goodies offerred.
Sweets were offered in the house by Candy Cottage.
Montgomery Cafe had samples of their Irish breads that are available at Superette.
The Superette was stationed in the barn close to the door as they grilled samples in the garden.

... and Bertucci's offered tasty treats in the house.
The Sherborn Out had wine tasting to go with the food samples.

Familiar Holliston faces supporting the society included Theresa Lamkin, Carl Damigella (a Kevin Conley wannabe), Selectman Chair and candidate for reelection Jay Marsden and Kim, and Selectman Jay Leary and Karen.
Selectman Kevin Conley and Martha enjoyed dining in the house rather than joining the current selectmen and the past selectman as in the previous snap shot.
As usual, Holliston's Finest Auxilliary force was on duty keeping us safe on Washington Street
