Motorcycle organization donates to Young Marines


Richard Whittington, president of Lake Bistineau’s ABATE (American Bikers Aimed Towards Education) Chapter presented a check for $500 to Bossier Sheriff Julian Whittington Monday afternoon at the Viking Drive Substation to support the Bossier Sheriff’s Young Marines.

The group is primarily a political organization to support motorcycle legislation and safety for all motorcyclists, but also helps with issues dealing with children.

After hearing about Sheriff Whittington’s stance about keeping voluntary prayer and God in the Young Marines program, they wanted to support the cause, said Lori Kellogg, lifetime member of ABATE.
