Welcoming a New Year

The Akron-Newstead community gathered at Russell Park for the Annual Ball Drop on New Year’s Eve. The Akron Celebration Committee thanks all those who helped make the event a success - particularly Northeast Caissons, Young’s Explosives, the Akron Fire Company, Brandon Chase, the Akron Boy Scouts, and Village of Akron. Unfortunately, high winds made it unsafe to have the fireworks. The ball did safely “drop” and everyone seemed to enjoy the music and very mild temperatures. The Akron Celebration Committee will hold an organizational meeting for Fourth of July 2005 on January 12 at 7:30 p.m. in the Akron Fire Hall, Main Street. All interested in maintaining the tradition of the Fourth of July Celebration are encouraged to attend. More volunteers are needed to continue this annual event. Please call 542-9615 if you are interested, but cannot attend the meeting.
