Zwolle Depot is symbol of town’s rich history

With Zwolle’s 120th anniversary celebration approaching, we here at the Index are highlighting some of history and happenings of the local town.

Zwolle owes its founding to the Kansas City Southern railroad entrepreneur Arthur E. Stilwell, who dreamed of building a railroad that linked Kansas City, Missouri, to the gulf coast. He sought investment capital from Jan de Goeijen, a Dutch coffee merchant, who financed much of the expansion through Arkansas and Louisiana.

Soccer comes to Sabine in big way

By Daniel Jones, editor

 Soccer, known affectionately as the beautiful game, is played by 250 million people in over 200 countries and dependencies across the planet, but hasn’t had a home in Sabine Parish until now, as this fall will bring about league play and even a more advanced club-style team and potential sports academy.

After months of hard work, and maybe a few hiccups here and there, Christopher Dodson, Shawn Bozzell, the town of Many, and several other entities are pleased to announce the new sporting opportunities, and extend an invite to interested parties to the Five Dollar Futbol Clinic featuring the Northwestern State Demons soccer team at the Sabine Parish fairgrounds on July 7. Currently, improvements are being made to the land behind the rodeo arena, but if not ready for play, the camp will be held in the outfield areas of nearby baseball fields.

Operation GRITS campaign underway

PLW Integra Insurance is thrilled to have been selected as an official partner with Operation GRITS, and is collecting items for “With Love from Lou-siana” care packages to be sent to troops overseas this summer.

Operation GRITS is a project comprised of volunteers from Texas to Georgia. Some of the participants are military veterans, parents, and spouses of active and retired military, while some have no military connection other than a love of country. What brings them together is the care and concern for soldiers as they serve overseas, far from family and friends.
