Key Bank has agreed to be the main sponsor for the city’s Fourth of July celebration and donate $6,000. Valley Medical will be the chief sponsor of the Newcastle Days festival.

The city will spend the entirety of its $10,000 community events budget on the Fourth of July Celebration. Resident Shel Neufeld also donated $1,000 toward the event.

At its monthly meeting June 9, the Parks Commission picked out the winning poster from the Fourth of July poster competition. Resident Rick Olson designed the winning poster, and it will be printed and distributed throughout the city next week to promote the celebration.
