The current Many Elementary School opened its doors in 1969, originally built to house 350 students from grades kindergarten through fourth.

Just last week, five sites in DeSoto Parish Water District No. 1 were tested and discovered to have a rare amoeba in the system. Due to this recent finding, along with one in St. Bernard Parish in south Louisiana, the Town of Many wants to reassure its citizens that its water is completely safe for usage. “Our system is safe,” Many mayor Ken Freeman said. “We haven’t been under a boil alert since the drought two years ago and we take many measures to make sure your water is safe.”

More than six million young people across the country today will be celebrating National 4-H Week, which takes place annually during the first full week of October. Sabine Parish 4-H leverages National 4-H Week to celebrate the great things that the 4-H youth development program offers young people and highlights the incredible 4-H young people who each day work to a make a positive impact on their community. On Wednesday, Oct. 2, Many mayor Ken Freeman signed a proclamation declaring 4-H Week for the local area. Over 20 junior leaders, parents and volunteers came out for the signing of the proclamation. Promoting 4-H in Sabine Parish is a very important job, because area kids want skills to succeed in areas that are not always offered in a contained educational setting.
