Let’s Ring in the New Year!
As we say goodbye to 2017 and welcome 2018 and the Hilton Village Centennial celebration, everyone is invited for caroling, hot chocolate, prayers, and bell ringing.  We will meet at 10:30 p.m. on New Year’s Eve in front of the Peninsula Community Theater for caroling.  As we make our way down Main Street, we will end our singing at Hilton Presbyterian where there will be hot chocolate and cookies (you are asked to bring some cookies with you).  Just before midnight, prayers will be said to end 2017 and to welcome 2018, and then the bells will toll 100 times in honor of the100th anniversary of Hilton Village.
