Today will be a very busy Saturday for Barbour County

Hello from Barbour County! Barbour County Deputy Sheriff’s Association is accepting monetary donations for their Shop With A Deputy program. The goal is to raise $1,000 to be used to give 10 local children the opportunity to shop with a deputy for the upcoming holiday season. Checks must be made out to the Barbour County Deputy Reserve Unit and can be dropped off at the office, or mailed to 26 North Main Street, Philippi, WV 26416.
