It’s finally fall and hopefully there will soon be that wonderful snap in the air as cooler weather worms its way into the Boro. Fall…it’s my favorite!

In this issue, we have a little spooky, a big celebration, and a great tradition. Our cover feature focuses on the spectacular 75th anniversary of Bulloch County Parks & Recreation. What a great 75 years it’s been, and there are countless lives that have been made better because of the department’s outreach.

We are also focusing on The Ripleys, an up and coming band that has been around a while now. Band members are hardworking local folks who are just brimming with talent. Another article focuses on the owner of Statesboro School of Dance, Shay Morgan, while we also shine a spotlight on an important holiday tradition and its anniversary this year, the Holiday Helper Tree at Georgia Southern. To add a little spooky fun, we’ve got a great ghost story for you on our very own Beaver House, and some chilling activity there.

I also wanted to take a moment to tell you, our readers, how much I’ve appreciated you for the last six years that I’ve been editor of this publication. I am moving on to another town, another publication, and will miss the Boro and the people who call it home. But I will miss the people most who faithfully helped create each issue, and those who read and loved them.

Thank you all, God bless, and keep discovering Bulloch!
