Troop 14 Holds Court of Honor

by Bobby Blair
June 28, 2013

Scouts, adult leaders and parents gathered at Stoddard Park Monday night where Troop 14 BSA held a Court of Honor.

While this annual rite of passage has been held for a number of years at the Laborers Training Camp in Hopkinton, that venue is no longer available for use according to scout leaders.

With the opening ceremony along with the Pledge of Allegiance, scouts and parents were informed about upcoming events. Troop 14 will head of for a week to Camp Squanto in Carver soon along with a high adventure trip for several days to New Hampshire's White Mountains.Three of the troop's scouts will be attending the National Jamboree in West Virginia from July 15th-24th.

While it was hot and humid with a lake just a few feet away for swimming, food and the chow line seemed uppermost on everyone's mind.

The cooks made sure everyone was well-fed.

Green Community-Stretch Code

by Judy Grosjean

It looks like Holliston is rapidly moving towards becoming a Green Community, which calls for us to adopt an enhanced energy-preserving building code—the Stretch Code. Conforming to the Stretch Code is no small potatoes for new construction, but for antique buildings it can be an even bigger issue. The difficulty and expense can tip the scales towards tearing down and starting from scratch. Green is great, but can there be a balance between energy efficiency and preserving our antique buildings?

Holliston: Destination or Drive-thru?

by Mary Greendale

In the late 1800’s, Holliston was a resort area for people from the city. They came to enjoy the country and our lake. We can do that again – only 21st century-style.
