A large, enthusiastic crowd was treated to an entertaining performance of the Harlem Ambassadors, a professional show basketball team, Thursday evening at Clair Bates gym at Van Buren High School. Six Ambassadors, four men and two women, were challenged by the Crawford County Dawgs with the support of a cheerleading squad, many fashionably dressed in tutus. All of the children in the crowd were engaged in the non-stop program, meaning the misleading final score of 82-73 meant little.

The event was organized by Crawford County Optimist Club, Van Buren Kiwanis Club and Alma Rotary Club as a fundraiser for the Alma and Van Buren Boys and Girls clubs.
