Tick­ets for the Taste of New­ton are $20 per per­son and are avail­able at the New­ton County Cham­ber of Com­merce, 2101 Clark St.

A news re­lease from the Cham­ber said the Taste of New­ton is “an in­cred­i­ble com­mu­nity ex­pe­ri­ence and a great op­por­tu­nity to fa­mil­iar­ize your­self with lo­cal restau­rants and busi­nesses [in] New­ton County.”

The Cov­ing­ton Area Em­ployer Com­mit­tee, a com­mit­ted group of hu­man re­source man­agers and busi­ness lead­ers, re­cently held its sec­ond an­nual “Op­er­a­tion Back­pack” to col­lect and do­nate school sup­plies for el­e­men­tary school stu­dents.

“We wanted to help the stu­dents, since the need is great. With many fam­i­lies strug­gling fi­nan­cially, they lack the funds needed to pur­chase nec­es­sary sup­plies for their child’s ed­u­ca­tional needs,” said Margie Ens­ley of Fu­turestaff, di­rec­tor of the Cov­ing­ton Area Em­ployer Com­mit­tee.

Mem­bers of the CAEC pre­sented back­packs and other sup­plies to Princi- pal Michael Fore­hand and As­sist Prin­ci­pal Rhonda Bat­tle at Mid­dle Ridge El­e­men­tary School. Stu­dents pic­tured are Cole Shan­non, Jad­den Mitchell, Gra­cie Hansen, Jack­son Allen and Eric Guiter­rez. Em­ployer rep­re­sen­ta­tives shown are Michael Card, Donna Shope, El­iz­a­beth Van Tas­sell, Maria Baker, Margie Ens­ley, Con­nie Price and Suzanne Zim­mer­man.
