As reported 40 years ago in the pages of The Columbia News, Thursday, Oct. 21, 1965:
The Harlem Bulldogs will be looking for victory No. 6 this Friday when they journey to Lincoln County to meet one of the toughest foes in Region 4-C in the Lincolnton Red Devils.
Lincolnton will be out for blood this year as it was the same Harlem crew that knocked the props from under the high-flying Red Devils last year. Lincolnton, several times state champs, was not only beaten, but held scoreless for the first time in over 40 games by coach Denny Kline's crew.
The new edifice of Advent Lutheran Church, 3232 Washington Road, will be dedicated in a service Sunday, Oct. 24, 1965, at 4:30 p.m. The Rev. Raymond D. Wood, D.D., president of the Southeastern Synod of the Lutheran Church in America, will be present to officiate over the dedication and to preach the sermon. A large attendance is anticipated, according to the pastor, the Rev. William H. Martin.
Horse show set
The first annual horse show of the Evans Band Boosters will be staged at the Circle T Ranch Saturday, Oct. 30, 1965, beginning at 4 p.m.
This show will wind up the season for exhibitors in the area and a big turnout is expected with approximately 150 horses to be entered. The season gets under way each year with the Evans Touchdown Club's show in late March.
