The Newton County Board of Commissioners received a special honor for being a champion of the Newton County Boys and Girls Club, which opened Monday, June 3 on Brown Bridge Road.
The Boys and Girls Club newest Club, located on 13634 Brown Bridge Road, Covington, cut the ribbon on its temporary facility Monday evening. During the ribbon cutting celebrations, President and CEO of the Boys and Girls Club of North Central Georgia presented the Newton County Board of Commissioners with a champions belt for its Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax (SPLOST) money that may help the club build its permanent location.
In 2017, the Board of Commissioners placed a Westside Youth Outreach Facility on the ballot for the SPLOST referendum, which was passed by Newton County voters. The vote means $495,427 will be used for the Outreach Facility.
On Monday night, Newton County Chairman Marcello Banes, District 2 Commissioner Demond Mason and District 3 Commissioner Nancy Schulz were recognized for Newton County's contribution of $495,000 to the Boys and Girls Club. Schulz was also recognized for her efforts as a member of the club's founding board of directors.
