Savannah Woods, Meghan & Madison Oliveri did a gymnastics and dance combination to “Me Too” by Meagan Trainor – they remained professional and poised with music difficulty and gave the crowd an impressive Show.
All of the performers were so brave, even when faced with music/technical difficulties they remained on stage, started over, and pushed on….. Also a special thank you to the two Hajjar dads who managed to pull off a great musical program. It was inspiring to witness the bravery and confidence in every one of those Hajjar Hawks!
I would like to thank all of the people that made the Hajjar show happen – Thank you to Beth Devine, Espresso’s pizza, the HPA members, parents, dedicated volunteers, and the Town wide Show staff who guided and helped with this show. Our dedicated judges for the evening were – Carol Bertolucci, Kevin Heffernan, Jim Gately, and Ed Giroux – THANK YOU TO ALL OF YOU.
Thank you to all of you who allowed this first year HPA volunteer to take on the show and I look forward to many events in the future. Alicia
