Main Street Cov­ing­ton, the Arts As­so­ci­a­tion and lo­cal gov­ern­ments have part­nered to seek nom­i­na­tions for in­di­vid­u­als and/ or groups to “ light” the New­ton County Court­house dur­ing the an­nual hol­i­day cer­e­mony in Novem­ber. The cho­sen per­son and/ or group will have the op­por­tu­nity to flip the switch as the his­toric Court­house is lit up ush­er­ing in the hol­i­day sea­son in down­town Cov­ing­ton.

“The Lighting of the Court­house is such a won­der­ful hol­i­day tra­di­tion we have here in New­ton County,” said Abi­gail Mor­gan Cog­gin of the Arts As­so­ci­a­tion. “Through in­volve­ment with other or­ga­ni­za­tions down­town, it was de­cided that we need to share this ex­pe­ri­ence with oth­ers and one way to do that was by al­low­ing peo­ple to be nom­i­nated to flip the switch. This is a great way to honor some­one in our com­mu­nity who is de­serv­ing.”

“This is the fourth year that we have sought nom­i­na­tions,” Cog­gin added.

The Lighting will take place on Nov. 20 at 6 p.m.
