The Bossier Chamber’s Military Relations Committee is spreading holiday cheer to local military thanks to a donation from Boomtown Casino and Margaritaville.
Thanks to a generous cookie donation by Boomtown Casino & Hotel and Margaritaville Resort Casino, the Bossier Chamber Military Relations Committee will help deliver cookies for 1,000-plus military members in our community Friday, Dec. 3.
The Committee is partnering with Barksdale Air Force Base, the Military Affairs Council and the Barksdale Spouses Club for the holiday thank you event.
“It is important to give back to our local military members for everything they do for us. We know these cookies are just a small treat, but we hope they feel the support and well wishes behind the gesture,” said Kattie Hollay, Military Relations Liaison for the Bossier Chamber of Commerce.
In total, there will be more than 5,000 cookies delivered by the First Sergeants to the single airmen that reside in the barracks of Barksdale Air Force Base, and by the Military Relations Committee to all of the local reserve units, MEPS (Military Entrance Processing Station), local recruiters and Camp Minden.
