Local fishing club holds rodeo to benefit
St. Bernard Sheriff’s Office D.A.R.E. program

Nearly 100 St. Bernard Parish children enjoyed a day of fishing Saturday, Oct. 19 at Torres Park in Chalmette when a local fishing club hosted a rodeo to benefit the St. Bernard Sheriff’s Office Drug Abuse Resistance Education program.

The Cajun Outcast Fishing Club donated $2,000, 90 percent of the proceeds from the event, to the D.A.R.E. anti-drug program, aimed at discouraging youngsters from using drugs, including tobacco and alcohol, or taking part in violence or bullying.

D.A.R.E., facilitated by program supervisor Lt. Lisa Jackson and Sgt. Darrin Miller, is taught to fifth graders at all St. Bernard Parish schools.
