Mint Hill Historical Society: International hotspot?

Mint Hill Historical Society

From America, with love.

Sue McDonald, administrator of the Mint Hill Historical Society, said they’ve had two visits in recent weeks from international travelers. This week, a baseball team from Limoges, France visited. The team was brought over by long time historical society supporter Jerry Helms.

A couple of weeks ago, they had three guys another European country visit. According to Sue:

A couple of weeks ago, a few young men from Russia were trying to kill time on their way to a wedding. (One of the men in the picture is the groom.) We warned them not to get dirty or the bride was going to be upset.

Butler Turns Back Page in Football Playoffs

The Butler Bulldogs defeated Greensboro-Page 35-14 in the second round of the North Carolina 4AA playoffs on Friday night.  The win gives Butler a 28 game win-streak, and stamps their ticket to Richmond County for a third-round match-up next week.

Quarterback Riley Ferguson was sharp again, throwing for more than 250 yards and two touchdowns.  Sophomore Uriah LeMay showed his big-play capabilities with 135 receiving yards on four catches, two of which were touchdowns.  LeMay feels that being aggresive offensively gives the Bulldogs an edge.

“Physicality is definitely a big part of the game.  The more physical you are the more it wears down the other team.”

Read more about Butler’s win, plus a preview of the Bulldogs’ game against Richmond Senior in the November 25th issue of The Mint Hill Times.
