Dozens of people got to ring in the new year a little bit early Monday with some beer and hymns.
The Beer and Hymns event at Bike Rack Brewing Company was a family friendly event to bring people together to raise glasses, voices and funds for charitable organizations.
“I doubt many families with toddlers are up at midnight ringing in the New Year; I know I’m usually not. My kids are usually in bed by 7,” said Brie Madden, vice chair for Beer and Hymns. “So, this is kind of a way for families to celebrate together and look forward to a New Year.”
A countdown took place at 6 p.m., ringing in the New Year with folks across the ocean in Scotland.
