On March 6, the Crawford County Optimist Club, Kiwanis of Van Buren and Alma Rotary Club hosted the Harlem Ambassadors professional show basketball team for a night of high-flying slam dunks, hilarious comedy and feel-good family entertainment.

The Harlem Ambassadors would like to extend a special thank you to event organizers Brian Nave, Raymond Harvey and Lance Montgomery who planned and promoted the game. The Crawford County Dawgs proved to be an energetic and enthusiastic challenging team and we thank all of the players for their good sportsmanship. The event would not have been possible without the support and generosity of local community sponsors, the Crawford County Optimist Club, Kiwanis of Van Buren, Alma Rotary Club members and the event volunteers.

The Harlem Ambassadors thank the community of Van Buren for its warm hospitality and look forward to returning to Van Buren in the future.
