Richland Parish Sheriff Lee Harrell is continuing his department’s efforts to improve the lives of seniors through service, with an ongoing partnership between the Richland Parish Sheriff’s Office and Triad.

This month, Harrell served as host and sponsor of a barn party held at the Northeast Louisiana Livestock Show Barn. Patrons enjoyed the entertaining sounds of the Mike McKenzie Band, as well as special entertainment from some of the area’s talented senior citizens. Local businesses came together to sponsor door prizes and gifts, and more than 800 patrons dined on fried catfish, hushpuppies, French fries, and cold beverages.

Triad is an initiative of the RPSO and numerous other groups to enhance the lives of seniors by providing crucial services and enrichment activities. In addition to the barn party, Triad hosts lake days, barbecue cookouts, and prayer breakfasts.
