Contestants will be holding fundraisers throughout the month of March in preparation for the 6th Annual Dancing with the Norwood Stars fundraiser, which will be held on Friday, April 11, at the Four Points by Sheraton, on Route 1, in Norwood.
The event will raise money for the Norwood Circle of Hope, which is a local foundation that assists Norwood residents who are in financial need. The organization was established in memory of Michelle Kennedy, a Norwood resident who suffered from leukemia.
It hasn’t been the best of years for the Norwood gymnastic team, but the Lady Mustangs, under the guidance of Karen Broderick, are continually striving to work hard while hopefully earning individual records. Norwood has competed with the best of the Bay State League where four of its six meets have been decided by 2/10 of a point or less.
Chicks with Sticks is a new fundraiser for the Norwood Farmer's Market (NFM), but Norwood ladies will find the evening not only profitable, but highly entertaining. Teams are now being formed for the round-robin, single elimination floor hockey event, that will be held on Friday, March 14, 6-11 p.m., at the Savage Center. Join as a group of 10-12 or individually and be placed on a team. Cost is $200 per team or $20 per person.

Jack Sheehan and John Galvin played on the same line last winter for the Norwood Hockey Team leading the Mustangs to a 13-5-2 record and a spot in the Division 1 South Hockey Tournament. Unfortunately, Norwood eventually fell 5-4 to Hingham in the Quarter Finals.
With the graduation of Tyler Gover, there was an opening on the first line–now enter Mark Powers. Despite being another winger, Coach Bill Clifford allowed Powers to give it a go, moving Sheehan into the center position.
February Spotlight – The Mike Nolan Band
The holidays are still a sweet memory, but another bright spot in the heart of winter is coming up fast: February school vacations are just around the corner. Kids will be home from school, and while the break from studies may be vacation enough for some, a week at home could lead to some serious cabin fever. Parents looking for ways to get out of the house need not look too far for diversions, however. There are some great options right in the Norwood area.
Writers draw inspiration from many areas of their lives, but for local author Michele Bussiere, the idea for her novel came right from the backyard of her Norwood home. Bussiere’s eBook, “Eldoria: A Step through the Thicket”, is a fantasy novel targeted at a young adult audience. The novel, which is currently for sale on Amazon.com, tells the story of a teenage girl named Morgan Campbell and her connection to a mystical island called Eldoria. Here, Bussiere discusses how her twin daughters played a role in helping her develop the story, as well as her future writing plans.
During last month, students from St. Catherine of Siena School in Norwood, MA, brought in food items for the Norwood Food Pantry. Each grade, from Pre-K to Grade 8 took responsibility for a particular kind of food – from canned fruit and vegetables, to coffee, tea and peanut butter. This month-long collection culminated in a Mass of Thanksgiving held at St Catherine of Siena Church and celebrated by Monsignor Paul Garrity. Students brought their contribution of food to the altar for a special blessing before the bags were sent to the food pantry.
