Fun Tree Climbing - Arbor Equity
Seedlings - Town of Newborn and Covington Service Guild.
Kids in trees - kids on the swings - and maybe catfish in the parking lot! A good time was had by all.

New Town Park is, well, AWESOME!
There's just no other word for this amazing addition to our community. Special thanks to Tom Kreiger for his energetic design and building of the park, along with our town workers Bear and Keith.
It has swings, grills, horseshoes, a walking path, and a large pavillion! And the largest fig tree anywhere. It's already in use by families, local muscians and more. Check it out soon!

Newborn hosted a water break for a recent bike ride - a bit of shade and water and benches were most appreciated.
