I was privileged to visit with Miss Mamie and her family on her 100th birthday. On behalf of the City of Covington, I, Mayor Mark, proclaimed Monday, August 24th Mamie V. Martin Day.
She is a remarkable woman and a pure delight to visit.
I was able to share with her and some of her family the life values of the Reverend Peter Atkins which of course, she knew about, but had not seen in probably 30 years. Our park on N. Tyler and 28th Avenue is named for the Reverend.
Oh, and I got to take a selfie with Miss Mamie : )
