As many of you know, Major Reginald R. Brown, Sr. has been a community hero for many years. He is a retired East Baton Rouge Sheriff’s Office Deputy of 25 years and is presently the Baton Rouge City Constable. He has received many awards throughout his career, including the Golden Deeds Award and the Southern University Trailblazer Award. Our local Holiday Helpers was the brainchild of Constable Brown and a group of volunteers who cared about bringing our community together in a positive way. For 30 years before passing the Holiday Helpers torch on to St. Vincent de Paul, Constable Brown made sure that this annual event provided a traditional Thanksgiving meal to the needy. He’s also a leader in the annual Christmas Crusade, which collects toys for needy children. He is a member of the St. Vincent de Paul Board of Directors. The list of his accomplishments could go on and on, but it’s obvious that his life has been one of service to others.
Constable Brown has now written a book about his life, entitled, “My Bicycle Journey,” with proceeds from sales of the book going to the Society of St. Vincent de Paul. Books are available for purchase at St. Vincent de Paul, as well as online by clicking here.
On November 11th, from 4:00 to 6:00 p.m., there will be a special book signing at the St. Joseph Cathedral Parish Hall, 412 North Street, Baton Rouge. All are invited to attend. We encourage everyone to support St. Vincent de Paul by purchasing this wonderful book.
