From the Feb. 17, 1971 edition of The Forest-Blade:
Kindergarten enjoy parties
The three kindergarten groups of the First United Methodist Church enjoyed their Valentine Party last Friday. Each child had a shoe box which they called their “post office box”. Their names were written in large print on the end of the box and each child tried to deliver his own Valentines to their friends by matching the names on the envelopes to the names on each mail box. Fun was had by all. Punch and cookies were served.
Ready to go
Russell Giles and Artis Ford get assistance from Band Directors Tom Durden and Elson Tims, Jr. in mapping out plans for the annual sale of Community Birthday Calendars in Swainsboro. The annual sale will be kicked off by members of the Swainsboro High School Tiger Band in a canvass of the city Monday evening.
