Video Segment: Hillers Cheerleaders Host Pasta Dinner

The Hopkinton Hillers Cheerleaders hosted a pasta dinner at the Woodville Rod & Gun Club to help raise funding for their team. The funding will cover various competition trips and equipment. It has been a good year for the Hillers Cheerleaders and they are excited for what's to come. Head Coach Melissa Zwang talked about what the funding will go towards: "The proceeds go to Friends of Hopkinton Cheerleading to support all the financial needs of the program like uniforms, gymnastics, mats and any travel trips we go on."

I asked the cheer team about their favorite memory from winning national last year. Alex Balerna enjoyed the airplane trips, Brooke Bellar liked winning, Michelle Horrigan liked getting onto the mat and having a perfect routine, Emily Sheridan liked wearing the red jackets after they won.

To hear more from the cheerleaders and see scenes from the event, check out the video.

The Water and Fire Department requests your assistance, in maintaining accessibility to the town's fire hydrants, for the safety and protection of everyone. During the winter hydrants can become buried by snow during a storm. If you have a fire hydrant that that is near your home, please help us make it visible and accessible to the Fire Department for use in an emergency. Precious seconds can be lost, searching for the hydrant or removing snow to gain access to it. Talk with your neighbors about taking turns shoveling around the hydrant in winter.
