September 30, when Harold “Chief Iron Bear” Collins will attempt
to set a Guiness Book of Records by pulling a tractor trailer a
couple of miles through downtown that afternoon..
The “World’s Strongest Native American” will pull a tractor trailer
from near Shaw Mill Road ,west on Broad Street (Highway 20) to
the corner of Fifth Street where he will make a left turn and take the
rig on into the parking lot at Piggly Wiggly. Once there, he and the
community will celebrate the achievement. St. Pauls Community
Pride is coordinating a festive event to mark Chief Iron Bear’s feat,
and a fireworks display will top off the evening’s fun.
The feat will be captured on a documentary and representatives
from the Guiness Book will be in St. Pauls to verify the strong man’s
Chief Iron Bear will begin his pull through Robeson County earlier
in the morning in Red Springs.
The Unity Pull for Tourism will continue through all other Robeson
County communities over the next weekend or so. He will be in
Parkton on October 1, part of that community’s Railroad Days celebration.
The fun and excitement will begin in St. Pauls at 3 pm--just in
time for the school kids to be witness to this amazing feat of strength,
endurance and pride in Robeson County.
