Regardless of whether you ring in 2016 alone, as a couple, with your family, partying with friends, meeting together in a church or other similar gathering, enjoying a five course dinner at one of our fine dining restaurants, or attending Last Night Fayetteville to see the live performances and fireworks and to watch the famous Hog Drop in person, it’s important that we all take time to notice the coming of the new year.   While we all love our old New Year’s Eve traditions, for most of us, there is always room to make a few new ones.  However you choose to bring in the new year, may you have a happy and prosperous one!
