The Newton Falls water tower is taking on a new color for most of October.

According to City Manager Dave Lynch, the water tower will be lit pink for the month with the exception of days where it will be orange for Newton Falls Tigers athletic events.

The water tower will be lit pink in coordination with Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

Lynch says the pink tower is a sign of solidarity to those diagnosed and their families.

The city manager added that the tower will also be lit orange at the end of October for Halloween.
