Red Stars donate to 2012 Santa Fund

By Julie Huss

DERRY — The Red Star Twirlers celebrated their successful season with a twirling extravaganza Saturday night at the Stockbridge Theatre at Pinkerton Academy.

Led by longtime coach/founder Gina Hutchinson, the twirlers presented their take on patriotic songs and favorite Broadway tunes.

The show comes after a year of awards and special appearances including a recent Memorial Day parade in Washington, D.C. The twirlers were able to visit national landmarks, including Arlington National Cemetery, where they paid tribute to fallen New Hampshire soldiers.

The Red Stars also kicked off another season of community spirit and support, and presented a check to the Derry News Santa Fund.

The twirlers will present a special holiday show in December to support the Santa Fund, working together with the Derry Community Fund to help bring holiday joy and help to those in need in the Greater Derry area.
