Mountain Communities – The celebration of New Year’s will mean closures of many offices and curtailment of certain services.

The ROTWNEWS.com, RIMOFTHEWORLD.net and ROTW ALERTS teams extend best wishes for a HAPPY NEW YEAR. When the clock strikes midnight on December 31, residents and visitors in the mountain communities will wish each other a very Happy New Year. For some, midnight signifies a simple change of a calendar and others the New Year symbolizes new beginnings and a look forward to an outstanding 2013.

Our wish for each of you is for a prosperous and Happy New Year.
