Chick-fil-A Covington.

Good morning, it is Thursday.

I just got back from the grand opening of Chick-fil-A Covington. That's right, we don't have a movie theater, and Preston has found a ranking online that says Covington is the most boring city in Washington, well, we have a Chick-fil-A now, so how's that going to move us down the boring list???
We picked up one of Lillie's band friends and ventured over to the restaurant. Last night in the pouring rain there were tents in every parking spot. I guess the first 100 people got to be in a drawing to win a free meal for a year. Much more calm this morning. The corporate woman running the show, truly a person right out of a role as event planner for a southern Hallmark movie, she thought I was the band director. Nope.
While not able to direct a band, I was able to get a selfie with the Eat Mor Chikin cow. Why not?
This is the color guard raising the flag for the first time while the KL band plays the National Anthem.
There were a couple of ribbon cuttings along with small speeches from Chick-fil-A folks, the mayor, and the new store owner.
Along with the ribbon cutting was a "first burger" photo. So they passed out burgers and everyone took a first bite. I did get a burger and it was good! I also was given this grand opening coffee mug. Overall I was quite happy to have showed up for this event. It is always fun to see grand openings, and I got to visit with a few friends as well.
Maybe my favorite photo of the day, I took Lillie and her friend out to Starbucks afterward.

See you tomorrow.

Congrats on your new Chick-fil-A!!! We love Chick-fil-A and have been going to them in Florida and Texas for years. In fact, I've also met the Chick-fil-A cow. How cool!
