I am glad to see that they have a Web presence this year and that the event is alive and ‘well’. We are big supporters of this event — the only other real ‘major’ “First Night” in New Hampshire being the bit more gala one in Portsmouth.

I know that management changed, for the first time in decades, last year and that this is still a ‘work in progress’ for the new crew. I also see that our own “Clearlakes Chorale” (for the first time that I am aware of) and our friend Dan Monahan’s “Lakes Region Chordsmen” have star-billing. That is great. Dan had already given me a heads up.

As an adopted Scot who takes Hogmanay very seriously (as one really should) I will just make this one observation. An event that ends by 10 pm on New Year’s Eve is not exactly “First Night” for the diehards and young at heart. Ideally I like fireworks (in the air and other varieties can come later) at Midnight. No Portsmouth does not have fireworks at midnight because of noise ordinances! Wolfeboro used to. 

I wish them all the best. They will fine tune it and refine it with time.
