ZWOLLE, La – Chief of Police for Zwolle, LA, Daniel Thomas held a prayer meeting for the town on Wednesday, February 24th at the town’s Fiesta Grounds. According to Chief Thomas, he felt as thought the town needed some words of encouragement and uplifting following not only the winter storm, but going on nearly two weeks with no water after damage from the storm.
The impromptu gathering had a good turn out as many from the town came to support one another, offer words of encouragement and prayers, and just join in town camaraderie. Though this has been an incredibly trying time for the small Sabine Parish town, Chief Thomas reminded its citizens that they will get through this by joining together and supporting one another and remaining patient.
The event was both held in person as well as live streamed on Facebook to allow everyone to hear his uplifting message.
While the issue with the water system has yet to be resolved, the town isn’t losing its strong town pride. Chief Thomas is hoping that once all the residential water meters are shut off that the leak will be able to be determined and fixed.
Chief Thomas has encouraged every resident to cooperate with shutting off their own meters for the time being as he says the only way to make progress is to complete this step of inconvenience first. He states that Zwolle is “in this together” and hopes everyone can “work together and get this done”
Citizens are encouraged to follow the Zwolle Police Department on Facebook for the most recent updates on the water situation.
