    No fireworks, but party goes on

    The small-town community feel that brought residents like Shannon Hadorn to town will be in evidence Saturday, when the Halifax in Lights committee puts on its annual celebration. Although the group was unable to raise the $16,000 needed to put on a fireworks display this year, a day full of music, food, and games will take place from noon to 4 p.m. on the town hall green. Newly appointed Police Chief Edward Broderick will be on hand to meet people and enjoy strawberry shortcake with them. Later, at 6 p.m., activities will continue with a DJ and the screening of the movie “RV.” Hadorn, a member of the civic committee, said she was drawn to move to town in 2008 by its strong sense of community. “Our goal is to bring the fireworks back next year. It’s important to carry on traditions,” she said.
