A Great Time Was Had By All!

A hundred plus Holliston neighbors got together at the True Blue Blues and Bar-B-Q Saturday night and they talked, dined and boogied the night away. We were happy to meet so many new faces and hear what was on people's minds. There is a community of Democrats here in town who are looking for ways to connect in and make a difference in the 2012 election.

Senate Candidates Tom Conroy and Herb Robinson and a spokeswoman for Elizabeth Warren chatted with attendees about their issues. Senator Karen Spilka and Representative Carolyn Dykema were also here for the fun. Fat Lotta Good, a local Holliston blues band provided a great beat and kept things moving.
