On Tuesday, Oct. 21, members of the Newcomerstown Bicentennial Committee met at the Newcomerstown Public Library to honor the people who watered the plants downtown and in nearby areas (the library, Baker's IGA and Medi-Wise Pharmacy). Arlene and Roy Mayhew, Lee Russell and Tony Sharnas generously volunteered their time the entire summer season. Watering isn't easy as it's time consuming and demands consistent effort.
