"Day of Caring"
The project goal: HELP for an older couple to maintain their home exterior.
We trimmed up trees and bushes, edged the sidewalks and drive way, pulled weeds, laid new plastics & wood chips.
Then, the rotten boards were replaced on their home steps.
Mr. Gary Gower overwhelmingly deserved this honorable award,

He is a hard worker and committed to what he does at Covington and the community.
The Bernie award is named after former employee, Bernie Prebynski.

Every year, we give out this prestigious award to the employee that exemplifies what Bernie stood for and believed in. Everybody loved Bernie. His outgoing personality was contagious always with a smile…. He treated everyone with dignity and respect. He had a heart for others and would do whatever was needed to help. He cared about his family and coworkers and it showed through his passion and commitment at Covington.By rewarding an employee “The Bernie” award,
