    Summer is here and HNN is not done with our year just yet! 

    First, Polar Park in Worcester is welcoming HNN member families at the WooSox game on June 9th!  There are still tickets left, so get them on the HNN website before it's too late!  Next up, mark your calendar for Holliston 300th Anniversary Day at the Lake, sponsored by HNN on August 10th at Stoddard Park.  We'll have local bands, food trucks, canoe and kayak races with prizes.  It's going to be a blast and not to be missed! 

    Finally, I want to thank our HNN leaders and members who volunteered for our incredibly successful, annual Touch a Truck Fundraiser on May 18th!  The money we raise is given back to the town in the form of grants to first responders, the Library, the Parks & Rec. Dept., and community farms, etc.  HNN brings members together for social events, civic activities and fundraisers that strengthen our community.

    We had a great discussion of our May book, Daisy Darker, among other topics. Thanks to Christel for hosting. This month we will meet on Wednesday, June 19, at 7:30 pm to discuss Why My Third Husband Will Be a Dog: The Amazing Adventures of an Ordinary Woman by Lisa Scottoline. Please don’t feel that you shouldn’t attend if you haven’t finished (or even started) the book—Book Club is mainly an opportunity for old and new friends to get together and chat and snack. All are welcome—we would love to have some new members join our group.

    We are starting our planning for next fall’s Book Club and have a few recommended titles we are considering. Feel free to bring a suggestion or two to the June meeting for books you would like to read (or have read) that you think might make good Book Club choices. Having a list of at least a few titles for the fall enables us to order books in advance and possibly secure in-demand titles.

    We hold most meetings in person but also have a Zoom option if you can’t attend. Please contact Debbie if you have any interest in hosting a meeting.

    A hilarious collection of stories from the life of the New York Times bestselling author. With her trademark wit and wisdom, Lisa Scottoline pushes past the 700-word limit of her columns, bringing out the laughter from everyday situations and sharing a treasure trove of insights along the way.

    This collection celebrates a kaleidoscope of seventy vignettes that illuminates the humorous side of life’s highs, lows, and everything in between: a braless dash to the ER, life lessons for girls from Betty and Veronica, intriguing theories on men’s most important body part and the rising antagonism against Spanx–all in one hilarious collection.

    Daisy Darker was born with a broken heart. Now after years of avoiding each other, Daisy Darker’s entire family is assembling for Nana’s 80th birthday party in her crumbling gothic house on a tiny tidal island. The family arrives, each of them harboring secrets. When the tide comes in, they will be cut off from the rest of the world for eight hours.

    But at the stroke of midnight, as a storm rages, Nana is found dead. And an hour later, the next family member follows…

    Trapped on an island where someone is killing them one by one, the Darkers must reckon with their present mystery as well as their past secrets, before the tide goes out and all is revealed.
