A special registration even was held Saturday afternoon for the Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP). The event took place at the OL Slaton Middle School Cafeteria. It was an opportunity for qualifying families to register their children for low or no-cost health insurance.
Volunteers were on hand to look at documentation and help with applications. CHIP and Children's Medicaid covers doctor's visits, prescription drugs and other medical costs.
