Looking Back

This shows a newspaper clipping from Jan. 5, 1994, submitted by Wendell Flemming of Roanoke Rapids. The photo shows Fleming when he was 25 years old and successfully deadlifted 600 pounds. The caption stated, “for you doubters, he did bring the bar all the way up about three seconds later.” If you would like to see your old photographs printed, please bring them by the office at 1025 Roanoke Ave. in Roanoke Rapids.
