The Beginning….

In May 2004 the Newport Township Board of Commissioners met for their regular monthly meeting and a discussion took place on ways to revitalize the community.  Twenty people committed to help in this effort.  On May 17th a public meeting was held to seek additional resident input. As a result, the Newport Township Community Organization was formed.

The Beginning

Today
it continues as an independent, 501(c)3 not-for-profit, public charity organization which is led by a dedicated, hardworking group of concerned Newport Township Citizens.  New members are welcomed to join and encouraged to help the cause.
