A crowd of 60 showed up for Newton Now’s ribbon cutting celebration hosted by the Newton Area Chamber of Commerce on Sept. 30.
City officials, Chamber members, readers, friends,and family turned out to enjoy drinks, refreshments and the musical stylings of Newton?s own NUTS ukelele band.
Co-owner and Publisher Joey Young and Marketing Dude Bruce Behymer both made speeches expressing gratitude to everyone who has made this newspaper possible.
While the office at 706 N. Main St. grew a bit crammed, people seemed to be in a good mood, and left few refreshments unconsumed.
Editors Note: The paper would like to thank those who came for a wonderful Wednesday afternoon. You all made us feel truly welcome in the community and that there’s no better place in Kansas to open up a community paper than Newton.
