The program is spon- sored by The Alabama Lung Association. Dr. Juanita Mc- Donald, Covington County Christmas Seal Chairman, is in charge of arrangements. The purpose of the program is to identify persons with early Chronic Obstructive Lung Dis- ease. The earlier lung disease is found, the easier it is to treat. The test is simple, painless and takes only 10 minu- tes. Preceeding the test, a short medical questionnaire is taken. Then the person is re- quired to blow into a machine that electronically records their vital capacity. Pulmonary Function Tests will be given on the 26th from 10:00 A.M. until noon, 2:00 P.M. until 4:30 P.M. A Better Breathing Class will be conducted for persons who have breathing difficuRies from h00 P.M. to 2:00 P.M. Dr. McDonald said, "Every- one in Covington County, age 18 and over, is invited to get a free Pulmonary Function Test. Re- member that date, May 26th at the Florata old National Guard Armory. Both services are provided through Christmas Seals."

At 7:00 o'clock proud parents, sisters, grand- parents and other relatives made their way to the First Baptist Educational Building. After the children introduced their families, they enjoyed mingling and chatting about the year's events. As folks finished their refreshments, Mrs. Wil- liamson expressed her thoughts and feelings about the progress the children had made in their social, emotional, and intellec- tual development. The not-so- shy youngsters sang a few of the songs they had learned during the year, and were awarded certificates indicating they had successfully completed a year of kindergarten. One pupil, Jeff Zorn, had perfect atten- dance and earned a special gold star on his certificate. As with all youngsters, their minds im- mediately raced to the next day when they would be welcomed as "big children" at Florala City School, where they would take a readiness test for first grade. The official kindergarten year is over. Lasting friend- ships have been made in addi- tion to the educational values of the program. One more im- porter event linked with the kindergarten will take place Tuesday, May 25, as Mrs. Glen Zorn and Mrs. Freeman Wil- liamson take the group to Dot- han to appear on Miss Becky's television program. Jan Zorn, Carol Williamson and Jeanie Williamson will accompany the group on this thrilling trip. Jeff Zorn will be celebrating his sixth birthday and will be treating his friends to a spe- cial surprise. Parents of children who will be five years old by October 2 are encouraged to contact Mrs. Williamson at 8-6345 or 8-6335 for information con- cerning kindergarten enroll- ment for the fall. 7"hW~. f/~L V 2o-31-2,Z " OOIRm" Sharon Johnson NOW ~PEN 7 DRrf3 I# WEK Winner Of #~ t~o~..' ~J~[/F T#,CP,~T"I Spelling Bee ',...__ Springs sponsored the annual ji~,l~!l~ ~!.= ~;~ Walton County Spelling Bee, Friday, April 30 in the audito- / ~',.~ muNmt rium of Walton High School. , .o~.| ;~'~:" " | Winner of the Elementary~]~ "*" r Bee (grades 4, 5 and 6)was Sharon Johnson, daughter of ....
