An­napo­lis Royal rings in the New Year in style

Annapolis Valley Register - - COMMUNITY -

The Royal Cana­dian Le­gion in An­napo­lis Royal, along with the Town of An­napo­lis Royal, hosted a New Year’s Levee Jan. 1, draw­ing big crowds to the al­ways pop­u­lar event.

Le­gion mem­bers, Mayor Bill Mac­Don­ald and town coun­cil­lors greeted vis­i­tors who em- barked on 2019 with lots of food, drinks, mu­sic, and ca­ma­raderie.

The event was billed as “an oc­ca­sion to call upon rep­re­sen­ta­tives of the monarch, mil­i­tary, and mu­nic­i­pal gov­ern­ments and to ex­change New Year’s greet­ings and best wishes for the new year, to re­new old ac­quain­tances and to meet new friends,” the in­vi­ta­tion said. “It is also an op­por­tu­nity to re­flect upon the events of the past year and to wel­come the op­por­tu­ni­ties of the new year.”

An­napo­lis Royal pho­tog­ra­pher An­drew Tol­son was at the levee and sent us a few pho­tos.

Mu­sic, food, hand­shakes, and best wishes were the or­der of the day for those at­tend­ing the New Year’s Levee at Port Royal Cana­dian Le­gion in An­napo­lis Royal on Jan. 1.
