This week (88 years ago) the first brick was laid for the beautiful building that we call home.
From The Bossier Banner November 13th, 1926-
" The Masonic Grand Lodge of Louisiana laid the corner stone of the new $50,000 Bossier City Municipal Hall on Saturday afternoon at 2:30 o'clock in the afternoon in the presense of several hundred citizens. J. Paul Haller Grand Master introduced the speakers. Mayor L.E. Thomas of Shreveport made the principal address. Mayor Tom Hickman of Bossier made a short talk."
There was even a parade!!!
Happy Birthday to our building and many more years of serving the community with your beautiful architecture.
All Y'all, a Shreveport-based podcast created and hosted by Sara Hebert and Chris Jay, will host a night of live storytelling at the Bossier Arts Council's East Bank Theatre, 7:30 p.m., Saturday, June 14. The night will feature local storytellers sharing true stories told live without notes in front of a studio audience. All stories told at this edition of the live event will touch upon the evening's theme, "Mistakes Were Made."Admission is $10 and advance ticket purchase is recommended. There will be musical interludes throughout the evening.
Event organizers are currently exploring the community in search of stories that involve huge errors, happy accidents, wrong turns and unforeseeable consequences. For more information or topurchase tickets, visit www.allyallblog.com.
