What Does Newlin Grist Mill Mean To You?
As a non-profit organization, we are regularly asked why is the Newlin Grist Mill important, how does it serve the community, and why should people support the organization? We have lots of thoughts about the answers to these questions; however, it is important that we hear from you in your own words..."What Newlin Grist Mill Means to You.”
