We are celebrating the city of Newton with our Hometown Spotlight! The Eagle for Life Foundation, founded by Mitch Bierman, will be having a Day of Giving Friday, March 23. Proceeds will help improve the Newton Elementary School. The goal is to raise $15,000 to replace the sound system in the gymnasium and to purchase new playground equipment.
Contributions can be made online at www.enrichingourcommunity.org, by phone at 618-783-3399, by mail (Eagle for Life, PO Box 1211, Effingham, IL 62401), or in person at the Jasper County Chamber of Commerce (124 S. Van Buren Street, Newton).
