The Rayne Police Department Reserves is an organization of dedicated people who volunteer their time to assist the police department with regular patrol duties as well as special details and events. The reserves have a limited budget and rely on fundraisers and the generosity of the community to enable them to purchase much needed equipment for the continued performance of their duties. Monies raised at this event will be used to purchase 700mhz portable radios, which cost $2,300 each.
Reserve members will be soliciting local businesses and supporters who would like to purchase an ad in the program book. Ad costs are $25 for a 1/8 page, $50 for ¼ page, $100 for ½ Page & $200 for a full page. The inside and back covers in color range form $300 to $500 each. If you would like more information or purchase an ad to support the Reserves, you can contact either Chief Carroll Stelly or Captain Tony Olinger at 334-4215 or Thomas Gossen at 334-3765.
