Library’s Summer Reading Program rocks

The Sabine Parish Library excitedly announces its 2018 Summer Reading Program: Libraries Rock! Children from birth to age 12 will have the opportunity to participate in a variety of programs that will include learning about musical instruments, listening to different genres of music, and watching various dance styles.

Spending time reading during the summer improves school performance in the fall, so children will be encouraged to enjoy good books. Children ages 7 and under who read/listen to 15 books and attend at least three weekly programs will receive a gift bag of goodies that includes a coupon for free food from Sonic. Children ages 8 to 12 must read six chapter books and attend at least three of the weekly programs.

Soccer comes to Sabine in big way

By Daniel Jones, editor

Soccer, known affectionately as the beautiful game, is played by 250 million people in over 200 countries and dependencies across the planet, but hasn’t had a home in Sabine Parish until now, as this fall will bring about league play, an even a more advanced club-style team and potential sports academy.

After months of hard work, a new type of sporting opportunity is readying, and the organizers extend an invite to interested parties to the Five Dollar Futbol Clinic featuring the Northwestern State Demons soccer team at the Sabine Parish fairgrounds on July 7.  Currently, improvements are being made to the land behind the rodeo arena, but if not ready for play, the camp will be held in the outfield areas of nearby baseball fields. 

The league is expected to begin play on Labor Day and last through Thanksgiving.

Zwolle Depot is symbol of town’s rich history

With Zwolle’s 120th anniversary celebration approaching, we here at the Index are highlighting some of history and happenings of the local town.

Zwolle owes its founding to the Kansas City Southern railroad entrepreneur Arthur E. Stilwell, who dreamed of building a railroad that linked Kansas City, Missouri, to the gulf coast. He sought investment capital from Jan de Goeijen, a Dutch coffee merchant, who financed much of the expansion through Arkansas and Louisiana.

Operation GRITS campaign underway

PLW Integra Insurance is thrilled to have been selected as an official partner with Operation GRITS, and is collecting items for “With Love from Lou-siana” care packages to be sent to troops overseas this summer.

Operation GRITS is a project comprised of volunteers from Texas to Georgia. Some of the participants are military veterans, parents, and spouses of active and retired military, while some have no military connection other than a love of country. What brings them together is the care and concern for soldiers as they serve overseas, far from family and friends.
