‘Covington County day’ set next week

There was plenty of Snowden’s sausage on the grill at last year’s event.

The Covington County Economic Development Commission is once again planning a meet and greet cookout celebration at the State Capitol, April 28, 2011 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.

The purpose of the event is to give our County the opportunity to develop and strengthen relationships with the State Legislators and staff members for future events and needs of Covington County.

Again this year, our plans are to have a tent set up on the Capitol grounds and serve grilled sausage dogs, chips and beverages to the State Legislators and their staff members.

The Andalusia Area Chamber of Commerce will charter a bus for the Covington County Day on Capitol Hill. Riders will meet at the Chamber to depart for Montgomery at 8 a.m.

Cost will be $30 per person. Anyone who would like to travel via a chartered bus should call the Chamber at 222-2030.
