The event was open to school age children registered in kindergarten through 12th grade for the school year 2020-2021 attending schools in Louisiana and Texas. Fishermen signed in early, staked out their spots and were eagerly waiting for the clock to strike 7:30 a.m., so they could begin to fish.

Local amateur radio club plans field day

The Amateur Radio Club of Sabine has set their annual field day as Saturday, June 26 until 12 p.m. on Sunday, June 27 at noon at the Emergency Operations Center building next to the fire house on San Antonio Avenue in Many. The public is invited.

Amateur radio, also known as ham radio, uses a section of the radio frequency spectrum for the non-commercial exchange of messages, wireless experimentation, recreation, and emergency communication. There are many other uses for the service as well.

Amateur radio operators can be seen as unsung heroes during times of disaster due to their proficiency in long-range communication with their radio devices. For instance, following a hurricane, cell phone towers can be toppled and service halted, and landlines will become unavailable. Operators serve as a necessary line to keep rescuers up to date on information.

The Many Community Center (aka Sabine Theater) is getting a facelift, thanks to talented artist Angela Osborn and her assistants.

The groups of cheerful exterior paintings brighten up the theater and their theme are entirely movie/film oriented. “Let’s Go to the Movies and Have a Great Time” features movie cameras, painted lights, popcorn, stars and a young woman enjoying a movie at the theater.

While driving past the theater, many people have seen the works in progress and are highly complimentary of Ms. Osborn’s work.

Mary Brocato, chairperson of the Cultural District Advisory Committee, commented, “Angela is doing a superb job of beautifying our historical old theater and we’re so glad that our citizens are pleased with our efforts to brighten up the theater as part of our efforts to make the cultural district even more attractive.

Back-to-School Rally planned for July 31

Once again, the Annual Back-to-School Rally is being planned following a year of lock-down, according to Mary Gore of Toledo Bend Ministries. Gore has served as Committee Chairman for a number of years for the free give-away of school supplies for Sabine Parish students in Pre-K through 12th grade.

The 2020 rally was a victim of the Covid-19 pandemic and was canceled last year due to Covid restrictions.

“We plan to come back strong in 2021 to provide needed supplies for all Sabine Parish students,” Gore noted.

The 2021 Rally will be held in the Family Life Center at the First United Methodist Church of Many on Saturday, July 31 beginning at 8 a.m.

Serving as Mistress of Ceremonies will be Judge Elizabeth Pickett of the Third Circuit of Appeals. She was first elected in 1997 and has served ever since.
