Retirement Book Accolades

In 1977 Peter A. Dickinson stopped in Covington for a visit, mainly to gather research for a book he was writing about "Sunbelt Retirement." I gave him as much information as I had about Covington and St. Tammany Parish, retirement opportunities especially, but overall quality of living as well. He also talked to a number of officials and agency heads who deal with senior citizens.

He sent me a copy of his book when it came out in 1978, and here is what he wrote about St. Tammany, Covington and Abita Springs. Bear in mind, that his book covered the entire South and Southwest of the United States, from California to North Carolina and all the southern bordering states in-between.
