The LaSalle Parish Sheriff’s Office sponsored a “Ride for a Cause” on the Saturday before Thanksgiving, with all proceeds from the ride going to the A.P.P.L.E.S. program (for needy children at Christmas) in the LaSalle Parish School System. Sheriff Scott Franklin presented a check for the funds raised in the ride to Missy Bignar, Homeless Liaison of the LPSB, sponsor of the A.P.P.L.E.S. program. Bignar expressed thanks on behalf of everyone involved in the program to Sheriff Franklin, D.A.R.E. Officer Jenny Parker, Kim Evans, and all those who participated in the motorcyle ride.
