Message From The Sheriff

Our hearts are heavy because we lost a member of the EBRSO family, Dy. Brad Garafola. Dy. Garafola was 45 years old and had been serving the EBRSO for 24 years. He was a member of the Civil Processing division where he carried out his duties to the very fullest. We are devastated to lose one of our own, and another is now in a fight for his life. We are asking for your prayers at this time. We will get through this together as a family and as a community.
