Local Airmen Receive Valentine’s Day Cookies
Posted On February 16, 2018
Local organizations and businesses showed their appreciation to local young airmen who live in the dorms.
The Greater Cheyenne Chamber of Commerce’s Military Affairs Committee with the Warren Spouses Club and the Women’s Civic League of Cheyenne showed their appreciation of the young airmen who live in the dorms at FE Warren AFB this Valentine’s Day by baking some homemade cookies! Members of these organizations assembled the plates which were then delivered by the First Sergeants.
There were 341 dozen cookies donated not only by the volunteers, but by local businesses as well. These businesses were: Cheyenne EFree Church, Little America, the Radisson Hotel Cheyenne, the Plains Hotel, Alchemy catering, Bella Fuocco Wood Fired Pizza, and i.Qlinary. Cookies were delivered to 545 local airmen. Many of them have expressed their thanks. Additionally, many of their families members from across the country were thankful to know their sons/daughters were being thought of.
One parent said, “Thank you for doing this for our Airmen. It’s tough being so far away from them but we’re truly grateful for your kindness and generosity!! My son loved his cookies.”Another said, “Our son was greeted with a sweet batch of home baked cookies for Valentine’s Day & boy was he HAPPY!”
To all that volunteered their time and baking skills THANK YOU!
