From the May 4, 2011 edition of The Forest-Blade:
DON’T MISS THE PINE TREE FESTIVAL
The Pine Tree Festival Parade will begin at 10:30 a.m. Take the family, and don’t miss out!
PINE TREE BREEZE DOUBLES IN SIZE
Riders from across the South buckled on their helmets and in Swainsboro, April 30, rode a bicycle 10 miles in the rain, or 20,30, 50, or 100 miles to raise support for Herrington Homestead of Nunez. Forty-six cyclists followed the police escort promptly at 80:30 a.m. following a welcome by Kristi Parker, Circle K Club president. This was more than twice as many riders from 2010!
