Hoosac Valley Concession Stand Dedication

Three years in the process and two years in construction was what it took to realize this project. It took the hard work of many local businesses and community members. If not for the very generous monetary gift from Adams Community Bank, Hurricane Pride would never have been able to move this project past the conceptual stage. In addition to ACB, special thanks are extended to Delmolino and Sons for the excavation work, Adams Plumbing for their donation of time, material and equipment, Canterella & Sons for the masonry, and Geary Builders for their design workup, permitting, and building assistance; in addition to numerous other local business donations. And to our dedicated community members led by John Burzimati, George Sweet and Bob Belini, who spent countless hours working on this project, Hurricane Pride personally “thanks” each and every one that was involved for their assistance.

Hurricane Pride “recognizes and thanks” local businesses and community members for their contributions and support. Click here for the list:

Strength and Conditioning Room

The goal of Hoosac Valley’s Strength and Conditioning Room is to enhance athletic performance and reduce the risk of injury. The room has been and will continue to be outfitted with the proper equipment to provide our students with the opportunity to utilize safe, reliable, and appropriate equipment to help them achieve their goals. Since the inception of the room, it has been able to service many students, as well as student-athletes who participate in a wide variety of athletic endeavors. This past year this area serviced a number of students and athletes who played baseball, softball, basketball, soccer, track & field, and football. The goal to properly equip the room fully is $29,000. Donations to-date have reached an amazing  $17,000 which have helped tremendously. The goal is to raise $12,000 more dollars to help complete the strength and conditioning room to match it to the exemplary status of the rest of the school.

Donations to these projects can be made by sending your check to: HVMHS, Attention Hurricane Pride – R Hill, 125 Savoy Road, Cheshire, MA 01225. For more information on either project, please contact Dayne Poirot @

Thanks to the generous donation of Adams Community Bank, this concession building will service the football, soccer and baseball field areas along with field days as deemed needed. Plans include two access areas for servicing customers, restrooms and storage.

Anticipated completion is late summer early fall. At that time we will hold a formal dedication. Watch for construction updates posted on the HVMHS website and on Hurricane Pride.

Paver Order Form

Paver Order Form (PDF) 

Hurricane Pride is a group of parents, student athletes, coaches, alumni, and community members that have come together to support the educational and athletic programs for Hoosac Valley Middle and High School. Our belief is that our future is with our children and we are focusing our efforts on the development of a strong body and mind for our youth. A well rounded child is a happy and successful future leader of our community.

Hurricane Pride has identified two projects they will be raising money: 1) equipment for our strength and conditioning room at the newly renovated middle and high school and 2) the building of a multi-use concession building. Both of these projects are not within the scope of the renovation project and have become the focus of this group. Our goal is $70,000 of which $29,500 will be earmarked for weight/training equipment and approximately $40,500 towards the building of the concession building.

The strength and conditioning room will be equipped with multi-use squat and bench racks with rubber platforms, rubber weights, glute ham developers, medicine balls, ropes, dumbbells, and soft impact Plyo boxes. This equipment will be available to all students so that they can condition within their own school. The concession will be available for use by baseball, cross-country, football, soccer, softball, and track and will have storage space and bathroom facilities. Donated building services are being sought for the construction of the building, but monies will be needed for supplies, plumbing, and electric. Donations to this effort may be considered tax deductible.

Our efforts will kickoff on July 9, 2012.Donations to these projects may be made through an online Pay Pal account or by mailing a check or money order to the high school c/o Hurricane Pride. Additional information is located at:,, and

Hurricane Pride will also be providing the opportunity to purchase inscriptions on the brick pavers that are part of the renovated arts entrance at HVMHS. The monies will also be earmarked for the strength and conditioning room equipment and multi-sport concession building. Order forms will be located at Hurricane Pride on Facebook and the District’s website.

A sample of the brick pavers will be available at HiJinx on July 30 at the Hurricane Booth. In addition to the availability of purchasing inscriptions on the brick pavers, the group will be planning a fundraising dinner event with more information to follow.

Monetary updates to our fundraising efforts will be posted on Hurricane Pride, Facebook and the school’s website so you can watch us grow.

Alumni, family and friends, please help support our efforts!

Hurricane Pride would also like to thank all of the volunteers who held signs, made phone calls, handed out brochures, and discussed this project with their friends, family, and co-workers.  A decisive win and a tremendous opportunity for our local economy and our children!
