January:

While most were still recovering from the Christmas season, others were off to a big start.

The Sabine Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution pledged to move forward in their service to the local community.

The smash blockbuster Wonder Woman played in the Many Community Center and was thoroughly enjoyed by all that attended.

The Toledo Bend Lake Association announced their 2018-2019 gun raffle, which provides needed money that the organization uses to improve Toledo Bend.
