Each week Holliston Patch takes a look back at what our readers posted so that you don't miss out on anything. Our goal, as a hyper-local news site, is to make this site sing by sharing with our readers. We love to hear from you. We value your comments and suggestions, and we will do our best to follow up on news tips received from you. We also appreciate that you make our lives easier by posting events and announcements for us. We will highlight reader postings here so nothing is missed. This week we've got a lost cat and a thank you note.
1. Cosmo is lost and wants your help to get back home. A reader writes, "a cat 1 year old gone missing on or about Columbus Day in the vicinity of Washington St/Summer St (Rt 126 to Fatima). Greyish coloring with some dark markings, white paws and white bib. No collar (unfortunately) but answers to Cosmo. Very friendly and will come if called. Pictures attached. Please contact Dianne Davidson at 508-254-6146 if you have seen him or have heard of someone finding a stray cat."
2. A huge thank you note was received in our announcements section from the Miller playground committee. To read the whole note click here. Here are the highlights:
Thank you all for making the Harlem Wizards Basketball fundraiser a huge success! The Harlem Wizards entertained a sold-out crowd in their game against the Miller Evos on Tuesday, October 18th. With your help, the playground committee raised $7000. All proceeds will go toward the new Miller School playground.
The night started off with a musical number by Holliston School for the Performing Arts students who performed an arrangement of the Beatles' song, Come Together. This was followed by Boy Scouts Pack 47, Den 3's flag ceremony, after which Brittney Galeaz, a Holliston High School senior, lead the assembly in the National Anthem.
Our two raffle drawings were held during the event. Congratulations to our Big Cash Raffle winners: David Nersessian, Joan Sousa, and Steve Guerrera. Congratulations also to Anne Young, our Sylvan Learning Center Raffle prize winner.
The playground committee sends out a big thank you to our sponsors for making this event possible. We thank our Platinum sponsor, Sylvan Learning Center of Franklin, for their sponsorship and for the donation of their generous Sylvan tutoring package as a raffle prize. We thank our Gold sponsors: Shooting Stars Basketball, Caissie Driving School, Anderson Baseball Academy, and Holliston School for the Performing Arts. We also want to express our gratitude to Tom-E-Tees, Boston Milford Marriott, Fairfield Inn & Suites, Peapod, and to Stop & Shop and Hockomock YMCA for their Stop & Shop Shape Up! Mini Grant.
