The Dancers are Ready!
by Bella Caggiano
After a three-year wait and hours of preparation, the volunteer dancers for the 10th Annual Norwood Dancing with the Norwood Stars will happen on Friday, April 15, 8 p.m., Four Points Sheraton ballroom! Two winners will be crowned: an Overall Winner for the person who raises the most money and the Judges Choice for the best single dance.
According to COH Volunteer Board Member Carolyn Riccardi, a live audience is hopeful, and at press time, spectators were expected to watch in person. There are options, however, for those who cannot make it to the Sheraton. It will be broadcasted live through Norwood Community Media (NCM) at satellite locations where people can cast their vote for their favorite dancer, or on Norwood’s local programming station. The satellite locations are: Olde Colonial Cafe, Nahatan St.; Colonial House, Savin Ave.; and Lewis,’ Central St. Check for your local station at norwoodcommunitymedia.org to view through your cable company.
This year’s dancers are Tracy Curran, Brian Glennon, Rachael Webber, Jeff Mahoney, Kathleen Ducharme, and Tony Mazzucco.
This year’s production will also commemorate former board members Kathy St. Cyr and retired Norwood Police Sargent Robert Doccette, who have contributed so much of their time to coordinate fundraisers and facilitate the organization’s efforts to help Norwood residents in need.
