THE SHIAWASSEE COUNTY Sheriff’s Posse collected school supplies on Thursday, Aug. 22 at the Owosso-area Meijer and Walmart locations to pass out during Project Connect in partnership with the Salvation Army Owosso Citadel. Together and with the help of Jarred’s Bow-Ties Closet, the Salvation Army and Sheriff’s Office were able to contribute 87 backpacks full of school supplies to the 12th annual Project Connect, which took place on Tuesday, Aug. 27.

Francis has been a Posse member since 1979 and Coselman has been a member since 2012.
