Join DCU on a Boston 25 News Zip Trip!

Help us recognize the local DCU Hometown Hero making a difference.

Thank You for supporting Zip Trips with Boston 25 News & DCU!

Each Friday throughout the summer starting June 21, DCU zip-tripped to towns and cities across Massachusetts as the exclusive financial sponsor for the popular Boston 25 Zip Trip series. Thank you to those who joined us to be a part of the live audience during the Boston 25 broadcasts. Members and non-members stopped by the DCU tent, said hi, learned  "What DCU Can Save You" and were on-hand as the DCU Hometown Hero was presented to a local resident for their courage, outstanding achievements, and contributions to make his or her community a better place to live.

Boston 25 News anchors Gene Lavanchy, Sara Underwood, Elizabeth (Lilly) Hopkins, Daniel Miller, Meteorologist Shiri Spear, Boston 25 Sports Anchor Tom Leyden, and Boston 25 Around Town Host Michele Lazcano will be broadcasting LIVE in towns and cities each week highlighting what's unique and special about each of the ten zip codes we travelled to.

Neighbors, residents, and kids of all ages shared their "Hometown Pride" as part of the live audience! The live broadcasts gave attendees the chance to show off why they think their town is a great place to live.  We got the opportunity to explore historic towns and cities, meet the people, and enjoy specialty food demonstrations.

The popular “Taste of the Town” segment  returned this year along with other favorite segments. The Zip Trips became even more child-friendly this summer with the addition of a family play area. Thanks again to those who joined us in the following communities!
