ASCENSION PARISH, La. (BRPROUD) – Ascension Parish Sheriff Bobby Webre used the last weekend in August to spend time with local members of LIFT, an organization that supports individuals who’ve lost their life partners.

Many of LIFT’s members are senior citizens and Sheriff Webre took the opportunity to share safety tips with the widows and widowers who attended the meetup.

In reflecting on the event and the individuals who attended, the Sheriff said, “Our seniors are a huge piece of the fabric that holds this great parish together. This is why I put so much effort into programs such as Seniors and Lawmen Together (SALT) so that our seniors get the support they need, which is often times as simple as good fellowship and knowing that their community is here for them.”

The weekend meetup was sponsored by Ourso funeral Home and several other individuals.
