Thank you to all of our readers and advertisers for another wonderful year. The Island Gazette has served the community since before 1978 and looks forward to another wonderful year in 2017.
2016 was a good year. This week's Year In Review isn't all-inclusive, but it's good to look back and reflect upon where we've been in order to move forward in a positive direction.
This week's Year in Review is Part Two. Next week it's back to a regular news cycle the first week in January.
Have a Happy New Year and be safe while traveling.
And don't forget the New Year's Eve Fireworks Celebration is in Kure Beach this year on Saturday, December 31st in downtown Kure Beach at the Ocean Front Park. The festivities begin at 9PM. This free family-friendly event will feature a DJ and dancing with refreshments and party favors available for purchase. In an Island of Lights tradition there will be a raffle, with the winner taking home the original artwork for the Island of Lights official Christmas card and ornament.
