The Rockyford Community Center was the place to be on New Year's Eve this year.

"Our fire department hosted the New Years Eve Celebration at the Community Center. They had hoped to sell 200 tickets, and they actually sold out and oversold about 10 tickets. We had a heck of a good time," explained Rockyford Mayor, Darcy Burke.

The event which featured Duelling Pianos, a silent auction and a midnight lunch and was a great time by all who attended.

"Without local community support a bunch of these organizations wouldn't exist, and I know that the fire department has talked about it for a couple of years. We haven't had a community new years eve celebration for a couple of years, and I was really excited to see the support for that," continued Burke.

Burke goes on to say that in past years, support for a community party hadn't been there, with most people choosing to celebrate at home. He was pleasantly surprised with the new change of events.

"We had people buy tickets that we hadn't even heard of before. So I think maybe the trend is changing where folks want to go out and meet people," concluded Burke.
