The Annual New Year's Eve Dance was held at the Orchard Hill Community Building on, of course, New Year's Eve. Practically everyone in town under the age of seventy and over the age of seventeen turned out to welcome in 2008. It was interesting to note that although things have been a bit cold between Riley O'Neil and Grace Randall lately, Riley showed up to offer emotional support to Grace as her ex-fiance and his new girlfriend Janice took to the dance floor. It wasn't long before Grace and Riley disappeared from the dance altogether.
In the meantime, Riley's brother Ian was seen dancing with ice queen Lily Robinson. Will Ian be able to thaw her frosty demeanor? I guess we'll have to wait and see.
When Riley and Grace re-appeared it seems they had settled whatever was between them and they were friends again. Actually, a bit more than friends, judging by that steamy New Year's kiss!
Unfortunately, the dance didn't end quite as well for Steve. He and Janice were seen having words and it appears that she left without him. There are those who would say it served him right for dumping Grace the way he did. But that's last year's news.
Happy New Year All!
