On behalf of the staff, volunteers and board of directors of Sav-A-Life of Covington County, we would like to congratulate The Andalusia Star-News on winning first place in the Alabama Press Association for beset single ad over half page.

Your newspaper received the award for a Sav-A-Life of Covington County ad – our 2009 Mother’s Day ad – designed by Erin Johnson. This ad that celebrates mothers and celebrates life has become an annual project of our ministry. We would like to thank the area churches who help us sponsor this Mother’s Day message each year. We couldn’t publish the ad without them.
