The 186th Salem Camp Meeting is under way this week and folks of all ages haven’t let the July heat deter them from attending this annual celebration. Howard Kennedy of Dallas, Texas, pictured here holding a hymnal, was among several hundred who gathered under the tabernacle for the 10:45 a.m. service, where Dr. Alice Rogers delivered the message Monday morning. Kennedy has been attending the Salem Camp Meeting with friends for 15 years. When asked why he travels from Texas to the camp meeting every year, he responds with a big smile across his face and says, “Because God is here.” The camp meeting runs through Friday, with services at 10:45 a.m. and 7:45 p.m. The campground, which was established in 1828, is located at 3940 Salem Road in Covington.
