Thank you to everyone who came out to the annual New Year Bell Ringing at Milton Town Hall last night. Over 100 people braved the chill in the air to join Mayor Krantz, myself along with some other councillors to help ring in the new year.
This tradition goes back to 1967 when Jim Dills started it. Every year there is an honourary bell ringer to start us off. This year was a young girl named Cara Slade who throughout the year had been job shadowing Mayor Krantz to learn about how local government worked and politics in general. Look out Gord…shes gunning for your job!
Joining us this year as usual was the world’s most famous hockey dad Walter Gretzky who helped the kids and other adults cheer and ring in 2013.
It was a great night…to be followed by the Mayor and Councillors New Year’s Levee on January 1st. I’ll post more about that later this week.
Happy New Year Milton!!! Have a wonderful, peaceful and prosperous 2013!
