State Record Breaker
Saluda High placekicker Dylan Strickland set the state record for consecutive extra points made, 69, when he made the above kick in the fourth quarter of Friday’s 28-12 win over Andrew Jackson. Strickland began the streak in last year’s 30-27 win over Keenan, a game in which he kicked the game-winning field goal as time expired. The all-important holder is Ty Bell, 22. Slayter Waters is the snapper. (Photo by Trey Fingerlin)

The Saluda County Chamber of Commerce is excited to celebrate the end of a great year with special events.
The Christmas Parade and The Polar Express Movie Night will be on Sat. Dec. 17th. We are expecting a wonderful crowd for this special evening of activities. The parade will begin at 4:00 and at the conclusion of the parade everyone is welcomed to gather at the Courthouse Square for food, activities and to visit with Santa. The Polar Express movie will begin after dark.
This will be an excellent opportunity to sponsor a popular chamber activity and reach out to the community during the holiday season.
