The Town Council hosted a brief ceremony in front of the Fire Museum on Spring Street and capped it off by cutting and serving a huge layer cake donated by Ronetco Shop Rite of Newton. The Town also unveiled a new logo and tagline to rebrand Newton (see above), as Town Manager Thomas Russo stated in today's NJ Herald, "...as Newton migrates away from simply being known as the county seat of Sussex County into a regional destination for travel and tourism as well as commerce, retail, business, industry, education and health care."
We are proud to partner with the Town in a joint marketing effort to promote ourselves as a dynamic community emerging as a northwestern hub for growth and opportunity. We are just starting to tell our story beyond the eyes and ears of our local residents. The Newton Public Schools are a center for literacy and STEM learning, the arts and humanities, and health & physical education. We count ourselves among the vibrant institutions shaping this renewed vision along with our municipal and county governments, businesses, restaurants, medical center, chambers of commerce, community college, theaters, and arts venues. We want to position our youth at the heart of this renaissance. Newton...city style, country cool!
