Barksdale Federal Credit Union and Humana will join Landers Dodge/Chrysler/Jeep in the category of Presenting Sponsors for the 2016 NW La. District Senior Olympics.
The district eight years ago linked its golf tournament with one of our major sponsors, Landers. Each subsequent mention of the golf event has been “golf, presented by Landers Dodge.”
Bean Bag Baseball competition March 26 is presented by Barksdale Federal Credit Union. The Athletes Celebration May 31 is presented by Humana.
Barksdale Federal Credit Union was a contributor for the first Northwest Louisiana senior event in 1992 when the YMCA directed competition. That first year was the Northwest Louisiana Regional Senior Olympics and it encompassed the same seven parishes in the district today. Regional was dropped by the state organization in favor of the designation “district” in 1996.
Humana, which has been associated with the district in the past, currently is a sponsor for the National Senior Games and a state sponsor for the Louisiana Senior Olympic Games (LSOG).
