Hear about how they have reacted to the events of the past year and provide support to the community. Listen to a panel of local stewards discuss the “real” issues of the health and economic hardships of 2020 and how the Newtown community responded to help.  Walter Gilbert III, a long time resident of Newtown and active in bringing the community together to address issues, will lead the panel. Vicki Oldham of Newtown Alive will be joining him. Additional information and history of Newtown can be found at
