NEWBERRY — The Newberry County Touchdown Club held their annual Watermelon Cutting on Saturday, giving Newberry College football players a slice of watermelon after their last Saturday practice before their season opener this week.
“It went really well, I was impressed by the football players. As they all came through the line they thanked the volunteers that were there, shook everyone’s hand and told them they appreciated it. Really well mannered young men, excellent representatives of the college.” said Foster Senn, president of Touchdown Club. “The watermelon was good and cold and we had a number of folks who came out and cut the watermelon and distributed, which was much appreciated.”
Newberry County Touchdown Club has been holding the annual watermelon cutting for over a decade. Every year it is held the Saturday before the season starts, Senn said they do it to show the Wolves they appreciate them, and give them a little treat.
“Show them the community appreciates them as well,” he said.
