April 23 was a special day for Warren Meadows Funeral Home, as the staff began their newest tradition with a flag dedication in honor of the late Floyd Giblin and other men and women who served in the armed forces.

Giblin recently passed following an illness, leaving a massive hole at both the heart of the funeral home and in our local communities, which he served both at his business and in the community.

“This is the first of many ceremonies,” said Giblin’s daughter Amy Barnhill. “Our family wanted to do something for all veterans.”

Page Gayle Fisher donates to depot museum in the almost

Gayle Phillips Fisher has donated four ancient church pews to the Town of Many for the future Depot Museum. The church and pews are believed to have been built in the mid 1800s.

Many city workers Mike Moore and Jonathan McCullough carefully removed the old pews from the church and slowly drove them to Many where they will be an important and functional exhibit in the future museum.

The future Many/Sabine Parish Depot Museum has received a generous gift from Gayle Fisher, a lifetime resident of Many and Sabine Parish.

Fisher is the daughter of the late Mr. and Mrs. Wayne Phillips of Many.

Fisher donated four very old church pews that were housed in the original Pine Grove Church built in the mid 1800s and still standing deep in the almost impenetrable woods of Kisatchie National Forest. The church and land belong to Ms. Fisher and were inherited from her father who inherited the property from his dad who bought the large tract of land many years ago and paid $3 an acre for it.
