Boro Brews for Books Inaugural .5K* Stroll, May 22nd, 2021 at 3:00PM.

Join us for our first annual Boro Brews for Books Downhill .5K Stroll in beautiful downtown Statesboro. Take advantage of the spring weather and new open-container rules while following the Boro Brews course through downtown. This is not your typical run or walk. We encourage you to get a little exercise (very little), and drink a few cold drinks with your friends. This .5K Stroll supports a great cause: Ferst Readers of Bulloch County. 

Your participation will help us provide books to children up to 5 years of age to help prepare them for elementary school. Come have some fun while supporting local children in Bulloch County!

Starting Line: Back Deck at Tandoor and Tap

Finish Line: Front Porch at Eagle Creek Brewery

Registration fee: $36 includes commemorative can koozie, 2 drink tickets redeemable for beers at Tandoor and Tap and Eagle Creek, and a course map. 

Must be 21 to register

Statesboro Paper Shredding & Recycling Drive

Keep Statesboro Bulloch Beautiful will be launching its first-ever free paper shredding and recycling event in Statesboro! The event will take place on Saturday, May 22, 2021 starting at 9:00 a.m.

The paper shredding and recycling drive will be a “drive-thru” event where individuals can drop off their paper items for secure shredding on-site. Paper items can include sensitive tax information, bank records, and financial records that require professional shredding.

KSBB and Ultra Shred Technologies ask that individuals of Statesboro and Bulloch County bring NO MORE than 3 banker boxes or copy paper boxes full of paper in need of shredding. However, items that cannot be shredded include: three ring binders, DVD,s, hanging file folders, CD’s, or hard-bound books. This event is available for Statesboro and Bulloch County residents only.
