A 2007 Tribute to Jack Borden

A 1947 charter member, Jack Borden was presented his “60th Year Membership Plaque” by the Parker County Sheriff’s Posse on March 5, 2007. Jack was not only a founding member of our organization but also was the author of our original charter and By-laws. The 98 year old attorney has been an inspiration to not only our Sheriff’s Posse but to our entire community. We congratulate him and thank him for these many years of service and dedication to the Parker County Sheriff’s Posse and Weatherford and Parker County.
