    Thanks to the generosity of local businesses, dozens of items have been donated for auction and raffle that will ultimately support the charitable, civic, educational and recreational events and activities that Holliston Newcomers Club members hold dear.
    A professional DJ and Emcee create an evening of high-energy entertainment and laughs for everyone to enjoy.
    Guests play bingo set to Rock and Roll music, while they bid on auction items and cheer each other on as people sing and dance at their tables.

    Please purchase your Bingo event ticket(s) by visiting
    We hope to see you there!
    Kind regards,

    Robin and Tracey

    A goal of the the Holliston Newcomers Club is to give back to our community. One of the ways this is accomplished is in the form of grants. Grant money is raised during the various fundraising activities held throughout the year. The 2018 fundraising events that contributed to the 2019 Grant fund were Princess & Superhero Party, Touch-A-Truck, The Great Pumpkin Trail, and Gingerbread House Decorating. 
    The Community Investments Committee publishes the availability of the grants, collects and reviews grant requests, and proposes the distribution of the grant fund.  Participation on the committee is defined in the by-laws. This year the committee members are Christel DiPippo (HNC President), Robin Bowman (Fundraising Chair), Beth Welch (member >5 years), Sue Hatton (member <2 years), and myself (member at-large and chair).
    The grant criteria and application were approved at the January General meeting and published to the community through The Holliston Reporter and Holliston Facebook pages. The committee is currently reviewing those submissions and will present the requests and the committee’s proposal for approval at the March General Meeting scheduled on Wednesday, March 27th at 7:30 pm.  This is the membership’s opportunity to give input into this important process.
    The Community Investments Committee can also be reached via email at

    March will be a busy month for the Newcomers Club! We will be holding a Special Meeting on March 6th at 7:30 pm at the Holliston Historical Society located at 547 Washington Street.  The purpose of the Special Meeting is to discuss and vote on the rebranding of our club. Then on March 27th, also at 7:30 pm, we will have a General Meeting during which we will review the grant proposals prepared by our Community Investment Committee. This meeting is a great way to learn about all the amazing projects the Club funds in our community. All members are invited and strongly encouraged to attend both events!
    Kindly RSVP to if you plan on attending a meeting and let me know if you wish to have any discussion item added to the agenda.
    Thank you!

    These next few months will have a lot of fun social and fundraising activities, and we look forward to seeing you at many of the events. Please keep in mind that we need each member to volunteer at least two hours of their time to help this club run smoothly and enable the tradition of giving back to Holliston that has been kept alive for nearly 50 years. Keep an eye out for electronic sign-up opportunities.
    Check out all of the following articles and see what works best for you. Feeling shy? Bring a non-member friend to one event and join in. This club is only as fun as you make it and we’d love to see you!

    The 2019 HNC Touch-a-Truck is quickly approaching!
    This great Holliston tradition and major source of fundraising is in jeopardy of not being held this year. We desperately need your help!  We need three or more people to co-chair this event.  The first two people to sign up to chair the event will receive a $50 Amazon gift card.

    Thanks for your support!
