Happy Noon Year!
LAST WEEK WE saw the start of a new year, and locals took it as an opportunity to celebrate. In Middlebury, Ilslely Public Library on Dec. 31 hosted a Happy “Noon” Year party at which younger children counted down the seconds until the clock struck 12 … noon. The kiddies welcomed a real balloon drop and had their pictures taken in front of a Times Square backdrop.
