As reported 47 years ago in the pages of The Columbia News, Thursday, Dec. 22, 1960:
Cubs hold party
Harlem Cub Scouts, Pack 61, had its first Christmas party, sponsored by the Harlem Rotary Club, at the Harlem Woman's Club on Wednesday night.
At the pack meeting preceding the party, Bud Carter, Cub master, presented Bobcat pins to the following boys: Phillip W. Davies, Raymond Fulcher, Jimmie Lewis, Robert Reed, Gordon Saggus, Gregg Sullivan, Terry Surgeon and Mark White.
Wolf achievement badges were awarded to Donald McCurdy and Dennis Whit-field. Donald also received gold and silver arrow points. Darrell Wells was awarded the gold arrow point.
Christmas party held
Under Home Demonstration work, the countywide Christmas party was held at Winfield Community Center on Tuesday. Representatives from the clubs in Evans, Martinez, Harlem Winfield and Appling were present.
New chairs have been installed in the building, and the decorations were very attractive. Mrs. Ralph Dozier gave an interesting Christmas story.
Chief gets watch
H.H. Morris, local groceryman and chief of Martinez's volunteer fire department, received a new watch at the organization's first Christmas party Wednesday night at the fire headquarters.
Edward Richey, the president of the organization, said the watch was presented to Morris, who has been chief since the unit was organized in 1958, for his "efficient leadership."
Albert Cadle, secretary of the group, was speaker. He praised the organization for the part firemen are playing in making Martinez a progressive community.
Faye and Kaye Cook were recipients of awards for perfect Sunday school attendance at Harlem Baptist Church for four years. This is a record of which they can be proud.
