Because of an idea by Beth Munroe (of Mrs Pugsley's Emporium fame), we celebrated the dawn of a new year in a unique way last night. Beth suggested that the townsfolk all gather in the newly renovated Victoria Square just before midnight to see the new year in together. It was fun to stand in the bandstand in the cold (-9, I think) and make lots of noise.
There was a big clock to help countdown the minutes.
It was a great idea for a community event and I hope it is repeated in years to come. Thank you Beth for all the amazing things you make happen here in Amherst, Nova Scotia.
Happy New Year everyone!
