EGT’s First Poet Laureate

Left to Right: Marty Shane, BOS Chairman; Ginnie Newlin; Jason Lang, Director of Park & Rec

Please join the Township in thanking Ginnie Newlin for two wonderful years of service as our inaugural Poet Laureate. During her tenure, she hosted numerous Poetry in the Park events and contributed to the quarterly Township newsletter. In case anyone needs motivation – she also still drives at 98, does Aerobics regularly and has the mental and physical vigor of someone 1/4 her age!

Interested in carrying on the poetic torch??? We’ll be accepting applications for the next Township Poet Laureate in the coming months – stay tuned!
