It’s finally fall — and in the Boro that means a couple of things. First of all, it means it’s time for the fair. And this year’s event marks a big occasion. It’s the 60th year of the Kiwanis Ogeechee Fair. What a great tradition and what a great bunch of folks. They work hard every year to make the fair bigger and better, and this year’s fair promises to be the best yet. We can’t wait!

We’re also featuring another tradition, but it’s one that might not make you feel all warm and fuzzy. It may make you quake in your boots instead. But then again, that’s the idea. The Haunted Forest of Statesboro is an event that brings a lot of spooky fun, but it also provides a way to support the local community as well. This year’s Haunted Forest will be held, for the first time, at the fairgrounds, and organizers say that the haunts will be, well, frightfully, delightfully good. But you should definitely be sure to wear your running shoes. 

We are also featuring a local volunteer and teacher who is extremely well respected and beloved: Rich McCombs. His students at Statesboro High love him, the folks who volunteer with him at Feed the Boro love him, and the community he serves loves him as well. We know you’ll enjoy reading his story and he’ll inspire you to want to give back, just as he does.

There’s all this and so much more in this issue. We know you’ll love it all. So kick back, grab anything pumpkin spice, and enjoy!
