The Covington Church of the Brethren has a question for you, readers of this column. Do you love their homemade chicken and noodles and apple dumplings? The kind that have been made and served in Covington for many years? If so, you are in luck! They are back, and will be served this coming Saturday. Read on for more details, all you noodle-lovers …
On Saturday, April 23, the Church of the Brethren will be serving their chicken and Amish homemade noodles, homemade apple dumplings, and more. Serving times are from 11 a.m. until 6 p.m. in the lower level of the church at the corner of Wright and Wall streets. You may eat in or purchase carry-out. It is a mere $3.50 for a bowl of delicious chicken and noodles, and the same $3.50 for a hot and fresh apple dumpling. The prices never seem to change! The servers will also fill containers for carryout for an easy meal later. Your columnist enjoyed several frozen and reheated containers of noodles for a few months last year. They keep very well! Frozen six-pack pans of dumplings will also be available for sale as well. And please don’t ask for their secret noodle recipe, that is a secret only known by God and the church cooks!
GIVE Medical Ministry of Covington is sponsoring a health fair, also taking place on Saturday, April 23. It will run from 9 a.m. until noon at the Covington Eagles Hall at 715 E. Broadway. Visitors may partake in free health screenings, including blood vitals, hearing checks, therapy procedures, vision screenings, and dermascan skin checks. Other valuable health information will be distributed, and there will be a free breakfast and door prizes. GIVE invites all community members to come and help ensure better health!
If you have not already signed up, there is still an opportunity available to come and give blood at the Covington Eagles Hall this Monday, April 18, from 3-7 p.m. Spring is an important time to donate, as the supply is typically lower due to folks taking spring break vacations, bad weather, and seasonal illnesses still affecting donation levels. The free gift at this drive is a “Key to Saving Lives” keychain to identify one’s self as a blood donor. Come donate, if no other reason, for the free cookies and juice after your painless donation. I do believe my own intimate date with a needle stick is set for 5 o’clock.
And the ticket sales for the circus coming to town have now begun! It will take place Monday, May 16, with 5 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. shows. Pre-sale tickets are several dollars cheaper, and more of the proceeds stay here in Covington. They are $7 for seniors and children under 12, and $10 each for adults. Tickets may be purchased at the Covington Government Center, Koverman-Staley-Dickerson Insurance, The Stitchery, Siegel’s Covington Country Store, Al’s BP, and the Covington Savings & Loan. Jeremy Yingst and Mike Stephan will be the guest ringmasters at both shows. A source tells me that just watching those guys act like clowns will be worth the price of admission!
