Boys and Girls Club Closing Bossier Location

(BOSSIER CITY, LA) -- The Salvation Army is closing the Bossier City Boys and Girls Club at the end of this month.

It's continuously operated the club in the community since 1933, with the 'Mitchell Park' location in Bossier open since 2002.

Major Mark Smith says that a combination of budget concerns and significantly lower attendance at the club are to blame.

The Charlotte Mitchell School next door to the boys and girls club branch will continue to offer similar programs for children.
