County. Approximately 400 students in
groups of about 25—30 in each group participated in what could be an annual event here in Baldwin County. The interaction between the students

PE-ABS CLASS ON 31 MARCH 2012 ATTENDED BY 11—ALL PASSED

Eleven eager students attended the ABS Class on
the 31st of March at Homestead Village. Bob Burton, Wayne Kindred, Carol Hanson, and Marine
Police representative gave excellent instruction this
class. Lunch was provided by the Homestead Catering Service which in my opinion the best lunch
to-date provided at an ABS Event. The class was
successful with 100 percent of the class passing the
exam.
