Upcoming Events In Downtown Covington

Gordon Carmadelle is a Covington resident and theater producer (evangelinetheater.com) whose goal is to bring professional quality theater to the northshore. He is producing Arthur Miller’s “All My Sons” at the Fuhrmann Auditorium, with half of any profits going to the James Storehouse to help local foster children in the area.

“All My Sons” is set in 1947, and tells the story of two families torn apart by choices made during the war. It’s a great drama, and was Miller’s first Broadway hit. It’s also got a love story, and some nice moments of humor. The theme it talks about is how we’re all ultimately responsible for each other, which makes a partnership with James Storehouse such a great fit- and is a timely message to this day.

West 30’s Task Force Community Meeting

The Covington West 30s Task Force is holding its’ second Community Meeting jointly with St. Tammany Parish Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS). The Parish is seeking input on challenges to fair housing choice in our area, and will work with those in attendance to establish goals and priorities related to housing, and potential solutions.

The West 30s Task Force will also invite nonprofit stakeholders to the meeting, including Volunteers of America, Habitat for Humanity and the Northshore Housing Initiative. The Task Force is a grassroots initiative to effect positive change in the West 30s neighborhood and throughout St. Tammany Parish. Future community meetings will focus on issues specific to the West 30s neighborhood in Covington and the surrounding area. For more information contact Michael Hunley at michael@msh-architects.com
