Evans Baptist's 'Come Alive'
"Come Alive! Get in the Christ Generation," has been the theme as the young and the old get together for activities this summer at the Evans Baptist Church.
Miss Sue Trotman is the new Youth Director in charge of the activities, which include pitch-and-putt, bowling, swimming, scavenger hunts, hayrides, and car washes.
Youth Chatter is youth paper
Youth Chatter, a bi-weekly publication for youth, recently elected staff members. Elected were Jan Thigpen, editor, and Pam Burks and Johnny Patridge, assistant editors.
In the last issue, Jan Thigpen said, "Every camper came to know that religion is not a dull way of life with nothing but 'dont's. We all learned that Christianity is a fun way of living and has much more to offer than we had ever realized."
The latest thing this summer at the Evans Baptist Church is the Sunday Night Spectacular. This new program of activities seeks to reach people of all ages in a new light. This service is followed by a music clinic for the youth, a film from the series, Sermons from Science, which premiered at the New York World's Fair, for the adults. This program will continue for five more Sundays, concluding on August 4 with plenty of room for more people.
Harlem Little League tournament
The Area Four Little League Tournament will be hosted by Columbia County's American League at the Harlem Little League Field from July 16-19, 1968. Six teams from the CSRA will compete for the opportunity to represent Area Four in the Sixth District Tournament beginning the following week.
The Board of Directors of the American League appointed Arthur Manus of Grovetown to be the Tournament Director. Both Columbia County Little League teams will be in action on Tuesday, July 16, on the opening day of the tournament.
The National League, comprised of boys from the Martinez-Evans area, begins the action at 5:30 p.m. against the Augusta National League All-Stars. Columbia County's American League entry, comprised of boys from the Appling-Grovetown-Harlem areas, complete the first day's activities under the lights against the Augusta Southern League All-Stars.
Girl Scouts meet at Tanglewood
Girls of the Central Savannah River Girl Scout Council are expected to turn out in large numbers to attend the second Council-wide day camp. Camp Tanglewood in Columbia County will be the site of this eight-day session beginning July 23 through Aug. 1, 1968.
Campers will enjoy a complete program of camp craft activities in addition to swimming, boating, and archery. Girls who have never camped before will learn basic skills, while more experienced campers will try their luck at a more complicated outdoor living.
Girls who are not Scouts are invited to join their Girl Scout friends for a fun-filled camp experience.
