Thank you, Liberty County and surrounding areas. Project Reach G.A.N.G. Inc. and its executive director, Lavonia LeCounte, give all credit to God for inspiring them to host this outstanding event. The attendance at this year’s Back to School Rally was 1,500-plus.

A special thanks to all of the program participants, sponsors, booth participants, youth and parents. There would not have been a rally without you. Rally 2015 was indeed a blessing to our county and surrounding areas. The rally was held at the Riceboro Youth Center on this year. We would like to give special thanks to the city of Riceboro and the Liberty County Recreation Department for making this possible.

A very special thanks to our support team for ensuring parking and safety was a priority: Mr. Larry Logan, Liberty County Emergency Management Agency, Pure Platinum MC/SC and Riceboro City Fire Department.

Plans have begun for next year’s Back to School Rally. The rally will be held on July 9, 2016.
