The goal is to raise $1200.00. That is what it costs for a full page ad in the Louisiana Sports Hall of Fame program. The reason is to show Jackson Parish native and 1978 Jonesboro-Hodge High School graduate, Doug Ireland, how proud his hometown and parish is of him for being selected as a member of the Louisiana Sports Hall of Fame (LSHOF) Class of 2021.
RARE OCCASSION! It doesn’t happen often that a person that was raised in Jackson Parish is inducted into the LSHOF. Actually Ireland will be only the third since the first class was enshrined in 1959. The other two are Bob Hopkins and Dan McDonald. Glynn Saulters of Quitman is also a member but he was raised in Lisbon, LA.
PLEASE ACT NOW! Already nearly half of the money has been raised but a little over $600.00 is still needed and it is needed now. Deadline to secure the full page ad is Thursday, August 19th. To donate simply call or email the Jackson Parish Journal with your pledge. The phone numbers to call is 318-480-1206 and the Email address is: firstname.lastname@example.org.
