Sabine School Board acknowledges Louisiana Conversation District’s auxiliary poster winners

Local students were presented first place awards in the Louisiana Association of Conservation Districts Auxiliary state poster contest by Mr. Alan Williams of the Sabine Soil and Water Conservation District at the Sabine Parish School Board Meeting on March 13. Williams announced, “It’s a privilege to meet with you tonight to honor students who excelled in the state conservation poster contest. We recognized our parish winners at a luncheon in December. The state competition is judged by the Louisiana Association of Conservation Districts Auxiliary to select first and second winners in five grade categories.

Ten poster winners are acknowledged with state awards in January each year. So from the number of ten winners you can tell we dominated the awards with three first place winners. This is the first time in 21 years that we have three first place winners. All three of our first place winners received a $75 check on the state level for their outstanding creations.

Leaders against Litter kick off campaign

Leaders Against Litter kicked off their anti-litter litter campaign on March 6 by educating Sabine Parish fourth graders on the unsightliness and hazards of litter along our Parish roads. “Stash Your Trash – Keep Sabine Clean,” is the theme of this litter education program, funded by the Toledo Bend Lake Association and presented by Rotary Club of Many.

The underlying goal is to establish good practices in these future adults, who will bring this message home to their family and friends. The response from the fourth graders was overwhelmingly positive, with the kids demonstrating insights and interest in the litter problem in the Parish. Pictured is Deb Pennington presenting this message to the Florien Elementary School fourth graders.

Marthaville news

The Robeline/Marthaville Water system meeting got kicked off right on time on Monday evening at 6:00 pm, my building was full with customers as well as others to see just what all has taken place since the last meeting. Was the meeting good, not really. Did we learn anything? We sure did and it was about another bill for $ 4,918.00 for computers, that we now owe on a credit card! Unbelievable!

For now our new board members consists of: Don Perez, Johnny Ledet, Pam Dyes and Carroll Daniels. We are still one board member short but to my understanding, they do have someone in mind.
