ECRU – On Friday, November 19, J.R. Bramlett, former resident of Thaxton, donated a Ford Crown Victoria police car to the town of Ecru.
Mayor Tom Todd of Ecru said that Mr. Bramlett stated that with the growth that Ecru is expecting soon, he saw a need for Ecru to have another car.
“J.R., who is a very successful businessman in Calumet Park, Illinois and still has family in the Thaxton community, has previously donated the town of Ecru a fire truck and a police cruiser,” Mayor Todd said.
The mayor also stated that he and J.R. were childhood friends and it was great that one of Pontotoc County’s own had done so well that they could return something back to their former neighbors.
