    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!

    The Holliston Newcomer’s Club is pleased to announce its first annual Rock & Roll Bingo event March 30, 2019 at 7:00pm at Christ the King Lutheran Church in Holliston. 

    Rock & Roll Bingo is a modern twist on a classic game that replaces the standard bingo format with popular music clips. Instead of calling out numbers, a DJ plays clips of music for 20-30 seconds until everyone identifies the song and stamps the corresponding box on the bingo card.

    In addition to dancing in your seats and singing to the music, this fundraising event will have a live and silent auction and raffle prizes!

    • Cash bar
    • Must be 21 years or older to attend
    • Purchase tickets here

    For questions about this event, please contact:

    The 2018 Gingerbread House Grant Fundraiser was a huge success this year with help from Mount Hollis Lodge, the National Honor Society, and the many Holliston Newcomers Club members who donated candy and their time! Over 70 decorated houses adorned the lodge hall over three fun sessions. We wish to give a special thank you to our volunteers who helped make this event such a success!

    Excited guests young and old walked into the Lodge to tables of fresh houses. They then went to our candy station where they chose an assortment of goodies to adorn their house. This year there were also giant Gingerbread men to add to the festivities and decorate. Not only is it fun to beautify one’s own house, but it’s also a treat to see the creativity of others. The atmosphere is not only jolly, but exemplifies the spirit of the season as the money raised is given right back to the community.

    The Langlois family of Hopkinton came back for their second year in a row, as it has become a tradition to which they look forward.
    Pictured are
    Tess 5, Theo 7, and their parents, Gayla and Steve Langlois.

    For the Wegrzyn family this was their fourth year attending the festivities. “We love this event and we look forward to it every year!” said Kerrin.
    This is one of the many events that fund the Newcomers Community Grants. Some of the 2018 grant recipients were the Holliston Fire Department’s personal CO2 monitors, Parks and Recreation Summer Concerts in the park, discounted library museum passes, and the Senior Center vegetable garden, among others.  Thanks to all of our decorators for helping us to give back to Holliston!
