During Drug Awareness Month in May, the Covington Elks Loge 1806 and Auxiliary had 14 Beanie Babies donated by Jim and Pat Kirkpatrick to be given to the girls at Aidmore Children's Home in Conyers. A note saying, "I've Better Things to do than Drugs" was taped to the label of the Beanie Babies with a sucker attached to it. Each of the resident's received this treat at an open house at the Aidmore gym in celebration of Drug Awareness Month.
