The Newville Fountain Festival Committee met on August 16, 2018 to close out business related to this year’s annual Fountain Festival. Chairman Carolyn Kough reported that the festival was a tremendous success. Financially, the expanded car show resulted in a significant profit for the two-day event. As a result, the Newville Fountain Festival Committee has presented checks in the amount of $500 to the following organizations: PAW Packs Program Inc., John Graham Public Library, Neighbors in Christ, Big Spring Food Bank, Big Spring Senior Center. The committee has also set aside the balance of the profits in a special fund designated for the future care and maintenance of the Newville town fountain. The members of the Fountain Festival Committee wish to thank the many sponsors, volunteers and all who contributed to the success of this year’s event.
The 2019 Newville Fountain Festival will return on June 14-15, 2019, with the theme “MUSIC and DANCING COME TO NEWVILLE!”
