Sounds like lots of fun things to do in your area, Kathryn!!  Our little Cairn terrier will be going to the country for New Year's Eve as the fireworks drive her CRAZY. She will bark at them until the neighbors stop lighting them or until she runs out of bark!! :)  Hope you have a wonderful New Year's celebration!!

Hi, Karthryn:

It sounds as though the beautiful town of Sturbridge and surrounding areas will be having some very nice celebrations. I was totally unaware of the Worcester First Night.  I hope the weather cooperates for everyone who wants to attend.

Claudette:  Rain looks possible, but I am hoping for temps in the low 30's through midnight.  Have a Happy New Year!

Kathryn,  I love the Sturbridge area.  Our best man from our wedding lives in Monson, MA, and we have had a blast checking out the area.  Fun list of events you have brings back great memories!  All the best in 2010!  Michelle
