‘Taste’ event moving to Southside

Because of tornado damage at the Covington Center Arena, the “Taste of Covington County” event sponsored by the county’s American Red Cross Chapter is being relocated to Andalusia’s Southside Baptist Church.

Red Cross Director Merrill Davis, who expressed his thanks to the Southside staff and members, said recent events should prove that no one is immune from disaster.

“We teach people how to deal with the imperfect situations of disasters every day,” Davis said. “The key is being prepared. The Red Cross is not immune to the effects of disasters, and (now), we practice what we preach.”

Davis said the event date and time – May 2 from 6 p.m. until 8 p.m. – remains the same.

“I think the event will be a great success, and we are expecting a great turnout,” he said. “So, get your tickets before it’s too late.”

Tickets are $15 per person and are available at the Red Cross office on Hillcrest Drive.

No tickets will be sold at door.
