Dear Editor: Thank you so mulch for the great coverage of the most successful 179th Salem Campmeeting.
The pictures that Mandi Singer took captured the spirit of campmeeting, and I hope they will earn her a third first place award in photography by the Georgia Press Association. She worked overtime to capture the candlelight closing ceremony, and I will never forget her going up an extension ladder into the top of the tabernacle to get that great picture that was on the front page of your July 6 edition. She is a great asset to The Covington News.
And Michelle Kim and Jason Murdock's articles were very informative. Both of these reporters are new, and I look forward to reading future articles by them.
We had over 15 states represented at Salem, and our attendance was over 10,000 for the entire meeting.
Thanks for your support for this historic Newton County institution.
