Submitted by Edward Jones,

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — McCann Technical School's eighth-grade Showcase for Success will be held virtually this year and potential students will be invited to the "premiere."   Principal Justin Kratz told the School Committee last Thursday that instead of inviting area eighth-graders to the school for the annual showcase and look at after-school programming, the school's recruitment efforts will be virtual.   "It is not our ideal situation. We would like to have students here," Kratz said. "But I think this will be a good night and a good event."   This decision to go virtual was made because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Normally,

"This water will be used and is much appreciated."   Girardi was not
