NEWTON COMMUNITY CAMERAS
The official selections are in for the spring Covid-19 photo contest. The 21 photos--that captured the pandemic impact for future generations-- will be exhibited at City Hall at a date to be determined. All 90 photos submitted will be archived at Historic Newton. Take a look at the virtual exhibition here.

We were pleased to collaborate with Historic Newton and Newton Cultural Development on this project and members of Newton Community Pride, Newton Camera Club and Newton Art Association served as judges.
NEWTON RESIDENT SPIFFS UP FIRE HYDRANTS
There are 2500 fire hydrants in Newton and resident David Porat wants to turn rust into red. With the help of Dana Hanson in the mayor’s office and The Office of Parks, Recreation and Culture, Porat has the supplies he needs. A former engineer, he wants to “help the city and work with his hands.”
.
In good weather, Porat can scrape and paint up to five hydrants. These hydrants are near Center and Ward streets. 

You’ll notice the difference across Newton Centre, his home village.
LINDA PLAUT NEWTON FESTIVAL OF THE ARTS
Planning is underway for the delayed Linda Plaut Newton Festival of the Arts. All interested artists should contact Chris Pitts at cbpitts@gmail.com. Performances are expected to be online in January and/or February.
