Today is the bi-monthly blood drive here in Covington. As always, the blood drive runs from 3-7 p.m. at the Covington Eagles Hall. In addition to the usual feel-good spirit that helping another by donating blood provides, donors will receive a “Ride With Passion, Give With Heart” t-shirt. And best of all, those who register to donate at the blood drive will automatically be entered to win a new Indian Scout Sixty motorcycle. A potentially sweet reward for just a little arm prick and some squeezes of a foam pad in your hand! Register to donate at donortime.com or call (800) 388-GIVE.
The monthly salad luncheon at the Covington Christian Church will take place this Friday, Aug. 18, in the basement of the church at 115 N. Pearl St. We have already hit the midway-point for salad luncheons this year, so if you haven’t made it over yet, plan on stopping by this Friday for a delicious lunch.

And although this event is still several months away, the tickets are available, so I’ll mention it now. On Sunday, Oct. 1, Fields of Grace Worship Center will be hosting “Duck Dynasty’s” John Godwin at 9 a.m., 11 a.m. and 6 p.m. These services are for the entire public, but will also focus on honoring our first responders in the area.
Mr. Godwin is one of only two regular cast members of “Duck Dynasty” who is not part of the Robertson family. His official title at Duck Commander is shipping manager, but he also builds duck calls and manages supplies. He has worked at Duck Commander since 2002.
John, or as his fellow employees call him, Godwin, will be speaking at all three services about his life before and during his career with “Duck Dynasty.” John’s wife, Paula, will be accompanying him to Fields of Grace. He will be giving autographs and having photos taken after each service. For more information about obtaining free tickets, please contact Fields of Grace at 573-4282 on Tuesdays-Fridays from 9 a.m.-2 p.m.
