Daffodil Festival to honor Cline legacy
Placeholder Image

The theme of the 2013 Daffodil Festival at Georgia Perimeter College Newton Campus is "Celebrating our Community in Honor of Pierce Cline," a strong supporter for establishing the campus.

The festival will be held Wednesday, March 20 and Thursday, March 21, at the GPC Newton Campus, Building 2N-1100. GPC Newton Campus is located at 239 Cedar Lane in Covington.

The festival will offer free programs honoring Cline’s legacy, presented by the Newton Chamber of Commerce and The Center for Community Preservation and Planning, as well as exploring the community surrounding the campus — celebrating its past and looking toward its future.

Programs will include a local history lecture by GPC faculty member George Lonberger, a talk on collecting oral history, and a presentation by students on the people and places of Hub Junction, a historic Newton County area near the intersection of U.S. Highway 278 and Ga. Highway 11.

There also will be campus area trail walks, entertainment by the Oxford Youth Singers, a presentation of "Making a Difference" student research projects, student and faculty performances of music and poetry and a very special program about Pierce Cline.
