HHS Cheerleaders Leave for Nationals! Go Hillers!

Heavy suitcases lined the sidewalk outside the High School as parents hugged their daughters farewell and wished them good luck. February 14th, the day that the Hiller Cheerleaders would leave to go to Atlanta, Georgia to compete at 2013 Cheersport Nationals, had finally arrived.

This is the second year in a row, and fourth time in five years, that the team has qualified for Nationals, where they will compete against a thousand other top teams from across the country. At last year's Nationals in Orlando Florida, the team placed sixth in their division, and out of all the teams at the competition, were honored with the Best Sportsmanship Award. And like last year, expectations to do well are high.

Leading up to the competition, the team was hard at work practicing their routine, as well as organizing fundraisers in order to afford the trip to Nationals. Be sure to cheer on the Hillers as they compete at Cheersport. Their performances can be streamed live online at dartfish.tv. The team is slated to perform at 12:16 p.m. on Saturday the 16th and at 11:44 a.m. on Sunday the 17th.

St. Valentine's Day at the Senior Center

After filling the dining room for a lunch of ham with all the trimmings--and cake for dessert-- more than fifty guests at the Senior Center seated themselves right next door for the festivities of St Valentine’s Day. Seniors offered each other greetings and best wishes for the day. The meeting room was decked out for the holiday with table decorations and a selection of sweets for everyone’s delight, all provided by the Friends of the Hopkinton Senior Center.

On hand was Hopkinton resident John Guido who provided the music, specially selected for the seniors.

Seniors enjoyed dancing and exchanging greetings on the dance floor and the first couple to step onto the dance floor were Ruth LeBlanc and John Birri who especially love to dance.

A highlight of the event was the naming of the King and Queen of Hearts. Cindy Chesmore, director of the Senior Center, was named the Queen and Pat Baratta was named the King of Hearts. Gift baskets provided by Project Just Because were awarded as prizes for the Royal Pair.

Baratta also planned to celebrate Valentine’s Day with his wife, saying they planned to go out to dinner. Valentine cards were also a subject of interest and were provided the Hopkinton's Girl Scouts.

Watch the HCAM video for highlights of the festivities!
