Newton Twp. – The NTCA held its regular monthly meeting on May 16 at the township administration building in Newton Falls. Plans were made to resume the repair work on headstones at Pricetown Cemetery which is at the Pricetown Methodist Church. A tentative date of June 3 is scheduled for the work to resume and be completed that week. Volunteers are always welcome. Work begins early in the morning and will continue until approximately noon.
There are a few 2013 calendars still available at some of the stores in town and may also be purchased by calling Lois Wynkoop, NTCA president, at 330-872-3116. They will also be able to purchase at the Newton Falls Alumni Reunion in Warren on June 15th at a reduced price. The 2014 calendars should also be available at that time. Last year the calendar was focused on the stores on the John Davis Insurance side of town; the new calendar will highlight stores on the opposite side.
There was also discussion of a second cemetery walk for early this fall. It will be done at the North Canal Street cemetery again, but with a different format and different graves highlighted.
The NTCA participated in the Girl Scouts’ Craft Show at the First Christian Church on May 18th.
For more information about the association or to purchase a calendar, please call the above mentioned phone number.
