Sabine Parish Tourist Commission takes Top State Tourism Award for the fourth time in ten years

For the fourth time in ten years, the Sabine Parish Tourist Commission has won the Louey, the top state tourism award.

“It’s because we have a lot of great people that put out the effort for the economic benefit it brings our community,” says Linda Curtis-Sparks, Director of the Sabine Parish Tourist Commission. She explained that the Louey Awards presented this week at the Louisiana Travel Association’s Annual Membership Luncheon in Lafayette are judged out of state based on the Tourist Commission’s results for their marketing efforts. They are presented to Convention & Visitors Bureaus or Tourist Commissions in three categories based on size of budget. Sabine Parish won the category with a budget up to $499,999. Louisiana’s Cajun Bayou received the award for a budget from $500,000 - $999,999 and Houma Area Convention and Visitors Bureau received the award for $1 million and above.

Rod Hopkins Tribute Show is this weekend

Rod Hopkins and his wife Frances Faust Hopkins had a lot in common: their love for each other, their love for family and their three children, their love for God and their church, and last but not least -- their mutual love for music.

Frances played the piano. Rod played the guitar and sang. She was the Sabine Parish queen of southern gospel music. Rod was the parish’s own Elvis Presley.

Together they built a band with fellow musicians. Rod Hopkins’ ArkLaTex Legends Band performed on the fourth Friday of every month for more than 18 years at the old Sabine Theater that was renamed the Many Community Center a few years ago.
