BREW YEAR'S EVE - December 31, 2008

We had grand plans for our second event in 2008, but the famous ice storm ravaged the entire region, knocking out everyone's electricity, which required the use of the Armory for an emergency shelter for hundreds of displaced residents. But fortunately the power came back, the shelter closed just before the event, and volunteers cleaned the hall so the show could go on. We cancelled our expensive band, cut the price to $5, and Johnny Girouard and Friends donated music for the event. All the profits from Brew Years Eve 2008 (over $1,700) went to purchase books for the Fitchburg Public Library.
