WILBRAHAM -- In what State Sen. Gale Candaras called "a defining moment" for the towns of Wilbraham and Hampden, state and local dignataries, including Congressman Richard Neal, State Treasurer Timothy Cahill, Massachusetts School Building Authority (MSBA) Executive Director Katherine Craven, State Reps. Brian Ashe and Angelo Puppolo, school and town officials put shovels to the earth for the official groundbreaking of the new Minnechaug Regional High School on the morning of Sept. 3.
According to Cahill, this was the first groundbreaking ceremony for an MSBA supported school that was attended by a congressman.
"I want to congratulate the voters in these two towns for moving forward in difficult times," Congressman Neal said.
