Rockport New Year's Eve ~ Canceled
On December 21 the organizers of Rockport New Year's Eve issued the following statement:
COVID case counts are rising rapidly in Rockport and across Massachusetts and are expected to go even higher. The Rockport New Year’s Eve Board of Directors is gravely concerned about the safety of a large indoor event at this time. Out of an abundance of caution, RNYE is regretfully canceling Rockport New Year’s Eve 2021. RNYE will offer refunds to all who have bought buttons. However RNYE would appreciate the donation of button purchases to defray this year’s unrecoverable expenses and ensure a successful event next year. People who have purchased buttons online will be contacted by email. People who have purchased buttons at stores or at other events may contact RNYE by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 978-309-9743.
