Recapping the April Sunday Social at City Pharmacy

* Guest Correspondents Adriane Ivey & Ann McCart contributed to this report 

The third-ever Sunday Social held at City Pharmacy on the 28th of April on the Historic Downtown Covington Square was a resounding success! Very well attended, multiple accounts detailed a fine evening of food, fun & fellowship, not to mention exquisite art & some "amazing music." 

Lesley (L) & Candice - two great women; two great artists!

The art, as mentioned in our previous piece, was the showcasing of two of Covington's most impressive Artists - Lesley Daunt & Candice Dean

Folks couldn't stop talking about both of their respective works... 

A couple of Candice's paint pieces, she also had some of her acrylic, resin & furniture works as well

Part of Lesley's "Music is Iconic" series

By the way, quick sidebar - the food, per usual, was outstanding! And many folks were really getting into the spirit. What with the amazing food & art, how could one not? But what apparently really took things to the next level was the musical entertainment. 

Pony League simply killed it Sunday night, folks. This band is something else!
