The West Feliciana Sheriff’s Office held its annual TRIAD Thanksgiving dinner at St. Francisville United Methodist’s Fellowship Hall Nov. 18.
About 100 seniors, age 60 and older, attended the event.
Food and door prizes were donated by area businesses.
The most senior female and male were recognized: Daphine Ellis, 95, and Norman Smith, 82. Each received a corsage.
Pat Gilmore, of the West Feliciana Parish Council on Aging, delivered the keynote address, sharing with the group the types of services provided by the council. She encouraged the elderly to get involved.
TRIAD — The Right Information and Direction — is a program provided by the West Feliciana Sheriff’s Office that allows seniors, law enforcement agencies and the community to work together to share concerns, develop solutions and reach common goals, according to Erin Foster, public information officer at the Sheriff’s Office.
Through TRIAD, about 75 elderly residents are offered transportation to and from medical appointments regularly.
