This is one of the many fundraisers that the community holdsto keep the Carver Community Center operating. There were a variety of hats worn by the women who at- tended. A fashion show held along with a skit entitled, "If This Hat Could Talk", where the ladies showed off their hats and told the group what their hat would say if it could talk. Speaker, Mrs. Catherine Thompson-Duncan, talked about what we as ladies can do to improve our community and the people in it. The ladies enjoyed a variety of great food and showing off their beautiful hats. Thanks to all who made this event successful.

Any new students moving into the Florala High School (FHS) area should go by the school and register right away for the new school year. It is very important to register as soon as possible. New students must have an Alabama Health Immuniza- tion Certificate. These certificates can be acquired from the county health department or from a private physician. Im- munization records from other states must be converted. Parents should be with the new students when register- ing. There are forms that must be complete and signed by the parent. It would be very helpful when registering to have the last report card or records from the school attend- ed last year. FHS office hours are Monday-Thursday, 7 a.m. 4:30 p.m., closed on Friday. Appointments may be made for oth- er times by contacting the office at 334-858-3765.
