Gingerbread House Decorating

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.

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!
