Around Foreman

By Earlene Warrick

With the death of Leon Newman, Foreman lost a long-time resident and well-known civic leader. His love of this town and its people showed in his willingness to serve on the city council, school board, Kiwanis Club, and other community organizations throughout the years. Heartfelt condolences go to the Newman family for their loss.
