Salem Camp Meet­ing

The Covington News - - OPINION -

As surely as the swal­lows head back to Capis­trano ev­ery year, we can be as­sured that all is well when a smil­ing for­mer Cov­ing­ton Mayor Sam Ram­sey pops into our of­fices at this time of year. We know that he has come to an­nounce that the Salem Camp Meet­ing is about to re­con­vene.

To­day marks the open­ing of the 185th ver­sion of the camp meet­ing, and fam­i­lies from all over the world will be com­ing back to Cov­ing­ton to eat, so­cial­ize and pray to­gether.

If you missed our sto­ries about the lineup of guest min­is­ters and mu­sic, go to cov­news.com.

This year’s Salem Camp Meet­ing will run July 12-19, with wor­ship ser­vices and other events from morn­ing through evening at the Salem Camp Ground on Salem Road.

If you’re new to our area or have never taken the time to at­tend, we strongly rec­om­mend that you do so.

The camp meet­ings are guar­an­teed to make you nos­tal­gic. A good dose of God’s word and the mu­sic will have you clap­ping your hands and tap­ping your feet with joy.

To all of our vis­i­tors, wel­come back. Thanks for help­ing to keep such a great tra­di­tion go­ing.
