Yes, we did it! We blew past our goal of getting 300 people committed to come to a New Year’s Eve celebration in Westfield by July 31st. As of Thursday evening, we have signed on 416 people. Thank you for supporting this event!
So what’s next?
Next we start notifying the public and civic, business and community leaders in Westfield that we have a good showing of interest for a celebration. We absolutely need to get their buy-in to make this happen. Concurrent with this effort, we will get a small committee in place to start laying plans, organizing and raising money for this event.
You can stay informed on our progress on our website, http://newyearswestfield.com, through occasional emails, and a new Facebook page which we will launch soon.
Again, thank you so much for participating in our petition drive. We’re very excited about the possibility of ringing in the new year with you on December 31st!
