Annapolis Royal rings in the New Year in style
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.
Children enjoyed having their fingerprints taken by a community-based volunteer who has been offering this at the event for many years.
The West family served up some popcorn, an essential component of community celebrations.
