1965 Halifax County Dixie Youth all star team

Starting with this picture, The Gazette will launch a new feature with sports photos from the past that helped the participants make memories that has lasted them a lifetime.

In fact, the name of the pictures and stories I will be sharing is called Making Memories.

The first one is a picture of members of the 1965 Halifax County Dixie Youth all star team who won the Virginia State Championship and went to Florence, South Carolina. You will recognize a lot of them as a bunch have come back to the county to raise their families.

As you see some of them at work, church or just at their work place, make sure to tell them thank you for Making Memories. As the column Sportslants starts back, if there is anything you want to vent or just hear about, just let me know.
