Friends of Shellman Bluff (FOSB) was established in 2001 as a State of Georgia registered, non-profit corporation dedicated to improving the quality of life for the residents of Shellman Bluff and the surrounding communities. All work is volunteer. FOSB sponsors several events during the year.


Shellman Bluff St. Patrick’s Parade is the primary fundraiser held each each year by The Friends of Shellman Bluff. Other events also take place all during the year.


The parade includes Shriners, marching bands, floats, decorated golf carts, fire trucks and various organization representatives. Family activities, live entertainment and food vendors are set up in the FOSB Park area. 

Proceeds of the events benefit the Shellman Bluff and Harris Neck Volunteer Fire Departments, along with community improvement projects.


FOSB currently has over 100 members who dedicate themselves to making North McIntosh County a better place to live. Membership is easy, just head on over to our online form and fill it out and then print and mail us your check by clicking here.
