Coffee with Mayor Cooper and Covington Quilt Unveiling - Jan. 30

NOTE: In case of rain, Coffee with Mayor Cooper will take place inside the Covington Trailhead Museum and Visitor's Center.

Mayor Mike Cooper cordially invites the citizens of Covington to Coffee with Mayor Cooper. The event will take place on Wednesday, January 30, from 9 a.m. to 10 a.m. at the Covington Trailhead, 419 N. New Hampshire Street. “This gathering gives our residents the opportunity to ask questions, state concerns or provide feedback in an informal setting where they can feel comfortable to do so,” says Mayor Mike Cooper.

This event is not a press conference, but merely a conversation between administration and citizens. Attendees may wish to bring chairs as seating is limited. Coffee and pastries will be provided.

Immediately following the event, the City of Covington will unveil its new quilt block, part of the Louisiana Northshore Quilt Trail, at the Covington Trailhead. The quilt block will be permanently displayed outside the Covington Trailhead Museum and Visitor’s Center.

The City of Covington quilt block was designed by Kim Zabbia, Chair of the Louisiana Northshore Quilt Trail Association. Its unique pattern was inspired by popular sites in the City, including the Covington Trailhead and the Columbia Street Landing. The quilt was sponsored by Benson Technologies.

The various Louisiana quilt trails span five parishes: Tangipahoa, St. Tammany, Livingston, St. Helena and Washington. For more information about the Louisiana Northshore Quilt Trail, visit www.louisianaquilttrail.com.
