Kiwanis Ogeechee Fair: Riggs has just about seen it all
Kiwanian has been a member for 35 years
102414 FAIR RIGGS 01
Statesboro Kiwanis Club member Leland Riggs laughs while enjoying a pancake supper with his wife Friday evening at the 2014 Kiwanis Ogeechee Fair.
At 98 years old, Leland Riggs isn’t quite a charter member of the Statesboro Kiwanis Club, but he has been an active member for 35 years. He was around when the Kiwanis Ogeechee Fair was in its young stages and has seen the fair grow. He was around when it seemed every club member had a role in the annual fundraiser and now sees a club with more than 140 members, with only a fraction actively taking part in the fair.
