Over 100 vol­un­teers con­verged on the Newton County FFA/ FCCLA Cen­ter Satur­day, brav­ing the cold tem­per­a­tures and blus­tery winds, to clean up the grounds and plant trees in honor of the up­com­ing in­au­gu­ra­tion of Ge­or­gia Gover­nor-elect Nathan Deal.

It is by the request of Deal that Newton County’s cen­ter — along with 31 other sites around the state — is par­tic­i­pat­ing in “With a Ser­vant’s Heart — A Day of Ser­vice.” Al­though Deal did not at­tend, Sec­re­tary of State Brian Kemp was in at­ten­dance.

Deal’s in­au­gu­ra­tion is sched­uled for 2 p.m. Mon­day at the Ge­or­gia State Cap­i­tal in At­lanta. He will be the state’s 82nd gover­nor.
