Community togetherness.

The Newport community is invited to gather this Saturday for the annual Newport Community Day Picnic.

The event is hosted by the Newport United Methodist Church, and will take place the Central Townships Joint Fire District station, according to Chief Brian Bennington.

The free event will take place from 5 to 8 p.m. Members of the public are invited to meet their neighbors.

“It’s a nice, safe place to get to know the people in the community,” Bennington said. “Newport is such a little town, but sometimes you don’t know your neighbors even though you live so close to them.”

The church will provide free food, ice cream, entertainment and live music. The fire station will provide the venue — the shelter house — and the manpower to set it up.

Additionally, the public is welcome to have an up-close view of the fire trucks.
