Our thoughts... Town & Country

Members of the Satsuki Garden Club have long worked to make Covington and Newton County both beautiful and a better place to live.

Thursday, those green thumbed gardeners will stage a Covington Candlelight Town & Country Christmas Tour, a fundraiser that offers you a chance to enjoy a look into some of our area’s most beautiful homes, all done up for the holidays.

The eight stops on the tour range from the historic Burge Plantation in Mansfield to the elegant Lochwold subdivision home of Kerry and Dan Chapman. See Page 5B in today’s newspaper for a tour preview, and go to for a look inside the home of former Covington Mayor Sam Ramsey and Becky Ramsey’s home, another stop on the tour.

The tour is a great holiday tradition, and a way to help a club that gives back to the community in countless ways. All proceeds go into Satsuki’s work to beautify the community, enhance green space and educate and work with children.
