Covington Elkadettes give $900 for K-9 vests

The Covington Elkadettes recently donated $900 for a protective vest for Sam the drug dog who is a member of the Newton County Sheriff's Office. Deputy Roddie White came to the Covington Elks Lodge and the check was presented to him. The Elkadettes spend a lot of time and effort on preventing drug abuse and use. In combination with the Elks they pass out Red Ribbons during Drug Awareness week in October. They also help put on a drug awareness puppet show for the elementary children in the county ages 6 to 9 at five or more elementary schools. - Special photo
