Though he didn’t have a lot of free time between his job, taking care of his family, and dedicating his time to help others, he always was able to slip in some relaxation time for fishing at Shady Oaks Fish Camp, as well as watching the University of Florida Gator football games.   Mr. Lamb spent many hours dedicating his time to the youth and young adults of Fort Meade.   He attended nearly every Fort Meade High School football and baseball game and was a member of the Fort Meade Booster Club and the Fort Meade Rotary Club.  In the late 1960’s Emory Lamb of Lamb Brothers Construction provided equipment and labor in the reassembling and building of our current stadium.  In October 2009, the Miner Boosters dedicated the stadium at Frank S. Battle Field to Emory C. Lamb.
