As reported 44 years ago in The Columbia News, Sept. 1, 1960:
Georgia's Fourth Annual Statewide Junior Fire Marshals Conference brought more than 450 students to the Future Farmers of America camp at Lake Jackson. Delegates from Columbia County included Claudia Tucker of Harlem, and Nancy Whitaker and Pat Blanchard of Appling.
Columbia County's Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 6445 announces it will purchase two large trophies. One will be awarded to the winner of the Harlem-Evans football game, and the other to the winner of the Harlem-Evans basketball game.
The trophies will be awarded on a revolving basis from year to year, with the winning school keeping it until it loses to the other school. Each year the winning school's name and year as Columbia County champs will be engraved on the trophy.
Mr. and Mrs. Robert J. Waldron, Nancy Louise and Linda Kay spotted Echo I as it passed over Harlem Saturday and Sunday evening.
Mrs. Waldron was first to spot it Saturday. Sunday evening Mr. and Mrs. Bobby G. Lawson and Bobby of Augusta viewed it with the Waldrons.
Echo I is quite interesting to observe. It is similar to our brighter stars, but is in motion and moves rapidly across the sky.
