Mecklenburg County's 250 Anniversary Celebration

Join us all year long in celebrating Mecklenburg County's sestercentennial.
 
My Mecklenburg 250 Story is...
  The Dilworth Tennis Group was founded by World War 2 paratrooper Hilbert Fuerstman in 1945 in Charlotte. Originally a mostly Jewish organization, it was on the forefront of integrating parks when African-Americans were allowed to use public parks in the 1950s. Still going strong and open to all, they can be found playing every weekend at the courts at Dilworth Elementary School.
