In this issue we pay tribute to a business who has been a mainstay in downtown Statesboro for many, many years — L.A. Waters. The company celebrates 85 years in business this year, and we think that is something to be celebrated. Congratulations to everyone affiliated with this wonderful family business.
Our Everyday Hero this month is Sarah Roehm, of Fixing the Boro. What an inspiration! She saw a problem and stepped up to do all she could to fix it. Now about to open a permanent spay/neuter clinic in the Boro, Roehm is following her passion and making a difference in the community.
In this issue you will also be able to read about the annual Thriller dance, and those behind it, during the annual and ever-popular Scare on the Square. We also spent time talking with Elijah Beniman, a local student who has taken bullying by the horns and is working to educate students at Statesboro High, as well as others in the community. This month is National Bullying Prevention Month, and so shining a spotlight on this issue was imperative. Read his story and join us as we applaud this special young man.
Last, but certainly not least, we bring you a story on Feeding the Boro. There are way more people affected by hunger in Bulloch County than you may realize, and this is one way to help not only those folks, but also those who would otherwise be alone during the Thanksgiving holiday. This event in particular shines a light on what makes Statesboro such a great place to call home.
So…have some treats, maybe do some tricks, and buy some large sweatpants for Thanksgiving Day. And happy fall, y’all!
