EDGE June | July 2021

Dear Citizens, With COVID-19 restrictions being loosened and numbers continuing to decline in our community, Slidell is starting to celebrate. I am very proud of our community for continuing to take personal and social responsibility. It’s because of your diligence and the hard work of our first responders and healthcare heroes that we are where we are today! Numerous events are happening and being planned around the city, including Slidell Movie Nights (May 29, June 12 and 26, July 10 and 24), Heritage Fest (July 3) and White Linen and Lagniappe (August 14). It’s exciting to see things happening in our community and I invite everyone to join us in Slidell for these events. Hurricane season is upon us once again and one of the most important things you can do is stay informed. As in years past, the City of Slidell will post all emergency information to our city website, MySlidell.com, and on our “City of Slidell, Louisiana” Facebook page. One of the easiest ways to stay updated is by signing up for email notifications on our website. It’s as easy as clicking on the “Subscribe” link at the top of our webpage and entering your email address. All of these services can be accessed from virtually anywhere, whether it’s a cell phone, desktop, laptop or tablet. Even if you evacuate, you can still get continuous updates about Slidell. I encourage you to take advantage of these useful capabilities.

Summertime is a great time to plan an outing here in Tangipahoa! From the swamps of Manchac to the rolling hills of Kentwood, Tangipahoa Parish offers a wealth of things to do and places to go right here in our own backyard. Our friends at Tangi Tourism have fine-tuned several staycation ideas for a one-day getaway in Tangipahoa. Check out this great list: • Ladies Day Out, complete with lots of shopping and time to pamper mind and body; • Guys Trip, to include your choice of outdoor recreation and a cool brewery tour; • Cultural Excursion, to check out the best our area has to offer in art, theatre, history, and even a Quilt Trail; • Family Fun trip, visiting sites that delight people of all ages; • Father and Son Outing to experience a wildlife adventure, spend time together outdoors, or grab a great meal together; • Mother and Daughter Getaway, spending the day learning, relaxing, or soaking up fresh air together while making last memories; and • Outdoor Experience, an opportunity to put your athletic skills to the test, explore the great outdoors, and recharge your mind and body in our rich natural environment. You can find more information on each of these itinerary ideas on the Tangi Tourism website, at www.TangiTourism.com/Tangi/One-Day-Getaways. You can also check out their Events page to learn about the many activities we have going on in our parish every single weekend. As always, you’ll find great things to see and do all around our beautiful parish. I hope you’ll carve out a day or two this summer to experience a getaway in Tangipahoa Parish. We know you’ll love it here!
