So, tomorrow would typically be our community's annual Levee at the local Legion and surrounding pubs. We dance, socialise, there's a giant community
seafood chowder pot (probably both at the levee, and wherever the secret swingers end up afterwards 😂🤮), we drink, and afterwards we fill the
coffers od our local donair shop.
Of course, it's cancelled this year, for the first year EVER, since it started in the '20's. I've never missed a levee in my hometown since I started
sneaking in at 17. It's a tradition that will probably be the most communally missed event since the pandemic started.
It's a huge day for our local Legion, which donates the large profit from food and drink sales to help the elderly veterans in town. Small towns being
what they are, whoever can spare their drinking money will hand it over to the Legion treasury, but this will be a hard year for all the veterans who
typically recieve stipends or transportation funding, etc.
So, to a the small towners out there who usually gather together on New Years Day with their communities, I'm sorry there will be no hilarious fights;
no bathroom rendezvous' to stoke the gossip fires for the New Year, no community chowder pot tomorrow.
If we're lucky, we'll sneak off to an illicit basement houseparty, and if we're REALLY lucky, it won't be the swingers party.
Happy New Years everyone, and don't forget to donate to the Legion, or whatever facility might host a levee in your town, keep them going until next
Who's going to miss out on their levee this year? What's your best levee memory?!
