New Years

To the editor:

There was a great crowd on main street for the New Year’s Eve dropping of the ball at the clock tower, with dancing on the upper level. Walking to the coffee shop at 7:15 the next morning I was really impressed by how clean the upper level and the street area in front of the clock were after the revelry.

I saw one paper cup out of place. Congratulations to everyone who helped make our downtown attractive the day after a party.
