A great time was had by all who attended the SJSO’s annual Thanksgiving luncheon for senior citizens. Sheriff Mike Tregre hosted the annual luncheon yesterday at Regala Park gym in Reserve. Seniors enjoyed bingo, and many won great prizes. A delicious lunch of baked chicken, rice dressing, green beans and bread pudding was served. More than 100 door prizes donated by local businesses were presented. Yvonne Alexander won the grand prize, a 48-inch TV donated by Walmart. Winners of breakfast with the sheriff were Loraine Williams and Elizabeth Davis. Santa, McGruff the Crime Dog and Darren the DARE Lion enjoyed visiting with the seniors.
