The Statesboro Kiwanis club installed new officers and welcomed eleven members this month. Byron Mullican, Georgia District Governor of Kiwanis installed the new officers.

John Banter was installed as the President of the Statesboro Kiwanis club. He follows Ashlee Corbin who moves to immediate past president.

This past year proved to be one of the most challenging ever for the club, seeing them cancel the Kiwanis Ogeechee Fair. The fair is the largest fundraising event for the club.

The club is preparing for the 59th Kiwanis Ogeechee Fair which is only days away. They anticipate this will be the largest fair in the clubs history.
