“It’s not only for individuals who are working their recovery programs, but it’s for anyone. An advocate for someone, for individuals who want to get to know more about recovery. Because it’s important. There’s another side of this monster that’s quite beautiful, and it’s called recovery,” said Sheffield.

Sheffield says they want to promote everything involving living as healthy people.

The event takes place at Cherokee Lake Park on Covington Avenue from 11 a.m.- 2 p.m.

At the event, they urge social distancing and mask-wearing.
