Newton has provided its staff with a wide range of engaging activities throughout the Summer and Fall. In July the company hosted an outing to a Bowie Baysox’s game, and employees and their families not only enjoyed watching the Double-A affiliate of the Baltimore Orioles, they also had an opportunity for a meet and greet with Louie, the Bowie Baysox’s mascot.

Last week, Newton participated in NASA Goddard’s 84th 2 Mile Intracenter Run. Employees indulged in a mid-day opportunity to “break” a sweat and catch up with other contractors and GSFC employees. After the race, Newton passed out custom-designed racing shirts and our signature orange Gatorade.

On Friday, October 27th Newton and Aerothreads are hosting a Halloween soiree where both companies and guests will compete to showcase their skills. Along with festive food and drinks, the party will include a Costume Contest, which Aerothreads, a specialized provider of Multi-Layer Insulation (MLI) blanket products and critical support services to the aerospace industry, comes in with a clear advantage. However, engineers and prototypers have a slight advantage in the second contest, Best Carved Pumpkin. We’re looking forward to a Spooktacular event!
