Mums the Word

by Cherry Fenton

Mums the Word.

Save the date - Saturday, September 24. We need some PHDs - professional hole diggers! Time and place to be determined. Holliston in Bloom and the Downtown Marigold Project are undertaking a dress rehearsal for next year's America in Bloom's National Symposium. The Symposium attendees are coming to Holliston in early October 2017 for an afternoon.  The Mayor will start the planting of hundreds of mums on Thursday the 22nd and Friday the 23rd. 

Holliston in Bloom needs volunteers to complete the plantings in East Holliston areas including the Historical Society, Police Station, Cole Court, Rossini Corner, and other locations.   We hope that Mother Nature will cooperate so that blooms will be peak around Columbus Day weekend.  And don’t forget to click to view our video as many times as possible.  We could win $1,500.00!

Please go to and click on the Volunteer tab to sign up or like our Holliston in Bloom page on Facebook.  Come help Holliston shine!
