Workers at the Red River Parish Police Jury’s work barn at the fair grounds have been busy filling sandbags. Residents in need of them may pick them up.
Work Barn Shop Forman Dennis Thomas told The Journal, “We have about 1,000 sandbags, maybe up to 1.500 filled and ready. Come by and get what you need. We will do more if needed.”
To find the work barn, take US 71 north and turn right at Dairy Queen. The entrance gate is on your left just before the entrance to the fair grounds. It is across from the voting precinct.
