ORANGEBURG OUT OF THE PAST

Boy Scouts, circa 1958:

Back in the 1950s and 1960s local Boy Scouts would be selected to ceremonially be Mayor, Fire Chief, Police Chief, etc., for a day. Here are some of these scouts around 1958 with the Fire Chief’s car. Left to right: Jimmy Gressette, Phil Adams, Willard Nettles (in driver’s seat), Tommy Murph, Billy Seif, Dan Whetsell and George Cone.
