6. The Holiday Bells Were Ringing

by Chris Cain 12/9/18

"O Night Divine," one of the songs played during the Holiday Handbell Concert at the First Congregational Church, was an apt description of the entire experience. A cold clear winter's (Dec 1st is the start of meterological winter) night with the moon and stars visible in the sky set the mood for what was in store for all who attended the performance.

For the 30th year in a row, the Holliston Police Association with support from the Holliston Police Department's Command Staff, hosted a a fantastic meal for seniors. The luncheon was held at the Holliston Senior Center. Since the seniors were receiving a gift from the police, the luncheon guests were asked to bring a donation for the Holliston Food Pantry. In the far right corner of the above photo can be seen just some the non-perishable items brought for the food pantry. The Holliston seniors sure know how to 'pay it forward.'

16. The Much-anticipated Mudville Traffic Study is Here!

by Chris Cain 12/1/18

When I studied science in school (in addition to reading, writing, and 'rithmetic of course), the professor would say, "In God We Trust, All Others Bring Data." Holliston's Board of Selectmen must have gone to the same school because they wanted data before considering any traffic volume and speed mitigation strategies in Mudville. The McMahon group recently delivered their 104 page report to the Selectmen (and to the public via the town's website). https://www.townofholliston.us/sites/hollistonma/files/uploads/mcmahon_mudville_traffic_pattern_analysis_memo_2018-11-07.pdf Rather than having everyone read the entire report, below are some of the data presented in a 'did you know' format. Did you know the current speed limit on all streets in Mudville is exactly the same as on Route 16 in downtown Holliston - 30 mph. Looking at the compilation photo above, what might strike you - besides that there are no speed limit signs anywhere in Mudville?

20. But Wait, There's More Stroll!

by Chris Cain 11/27/18

Mary Greendale's earlier article (with photos from Ken Robinson) got us a first look at this year's Holliston Business Association's Holiday Stroll. Ken and Mary were not the only Holliston Reporter folks to cover this annual downtown hit. Here's some additional photos and narrative that this reporter spotted during the course of the day and evening. Isabelle Gagne, wearing an elfin hat from TD Bank, was spotted on one of the free trolleys shuttling strollers to the many venues. Selectman John Cronin was acting as Trolley Captain on this excursion. Selectman Jay Marsden was manning the other trolley.
