Tonight we celebrate the arrival of the New Year. Here in Carlisle, PA at midnight we drop a “First Night Button”. In other years the symbol was a car to reflect upon the many car shows in Carlisle throughout the year. A button – somewhat lame. Other nearby towns drop zanier objects such as a pickle in Dillsburg, a wrench in Mechanicsburg, the red and white roses in York and Lancaster or vice versa…
Statistically, 2014 has been the best year yet for GeorgetownSteamboats even though I submitted fewer pages and posts than previous years. I promise to do more research at the National Archives in 2015.
That said I wish you a most Happy New Year. Live 2015 well and respect your fellow men.
