Sabine Chamber Honors DRHS Zwolle Clinic with Ribbon Cutting Ceremony

On July 1, the Sabine Parish Chamber of Commerce held a Ribbon Cutting Ceremony to celebrate the completion of the refurbishing of DeSoto Regional Medical Zwolle Rural Clinic.

The project began on June 28, 2020, with DRHS spending almost $1,000,000 on the project. The Board made the decision to commit the funds recognizing the need to address the significant health care challenges as their old facility had inadequate space. In 2017, the Buildings and Grounds committee began working on efforts to create more space and improvements. This week that dream became a reality.

Extra! Extra! The Enterprise Celebrates Its 116th Business Milestone

If you noticed the top of the paper (the official term is the masthead) on last week’s edition, The Enterprise and Interstate Progress rolled over to Volume 117, Issue 1 on July 2, 2020. On July 1, The Enterprise marked its 116th anniversary to begin its 116th year of publication.

Our history began when Fenn Alvord Leaming, a native of Kentucky, came to Mansfield with his wife Lelia where he and two partners established The Enterprise in 1904. At that time he was employed by The DeSoto Progress, owned by William Pegues, who had leased the paper to Leaming for $240.00.
