This site has been created and is maintained by the New Castle Community Partnership, a 501(c)3 organization.  Our mission is to promote, preserve and enhance Historic New Castle by forging community relationships.  We have big dreams and great people behind them.

     The New Castle Community Partnership (NCCP) has managed to move forward dispite  the delays that happened during the previous year of 2020 and has developed and implemented various projects for the year 2021.

 

     Although some of the events were canceled during 2021, the New Castle Community Partnership has continued to meet, plan events and has accomplished some of its goals. The NCCP has remained strong with dedicated and participating board members: Laura Fontana as President, Judie Baldini as Vice President, Cindy Snyder as Secretary, and Connie Reese as Treasurer along with Kim Burgmuller, Julie Kirk, Kelli Kruger, Dale McDine, Frank Moriarty, Rodney Pratt, and Jan Henion.

 

     The New Castle Community Partnership organization continues to promote, preserve and enhance Historic New Castle while interacting with the New Castle community. The goal is to bring into reality projects and events that enhance the public good in Historic New Castle.

 

     There have been several activities and accomplishments by the NCCP for 2021:

 

  • NCCP provided funding for a total of seven trees along the streets for the City of New Castle with new brickwork around them which were donated by a resident of the City.

  •  The NCCP offered matching grants to the City of New Castle and paid for four (4) of the new trash cans placed around the town which show the City’s Logo.

  • The NCCP partnered with the New Castle Jaycees to sponsor the Summer Concerts of 2021 for June thru August.

  • They supported and participated in the New Castle Beach Clean Up program on April 17th.

  • Since A Day in Old New Castle was canceled due to the global pandemic, the NCCP then sponsored the 2021 Summer Garden Competition, and entries were then submitted between April and May.

  • The NCCP contracted with the New Castle Historical Society to sell the New Castle tee shirts at the Visitor’s Center.
