The Christian County Chamber of Commerce Military Affairs Committee recently hosted its annual Military Affairs Gala at Hopkinsville Golf & Country Club.
Lindsey Geraci is Christian County Chamber's Director of Military Affairs. “This is our way of saying thank-you to all of our military service members, their spouses and families,” Geraci said. “We want to welcome those who serve at Fort Campbell into our community and show our appreciation for all that they do.”
Geraci says the Gala is part of Military Affairs' Salute Series. In past years, a series of events was held during the course of a single week. This year, events were spread over a longer period of time, culminating with a Saturday evening gala.
“The recent Freedom Friday Chili Cook-off was part of the series this year,” Geraci said. “We hosted a military spouse tour of homes in September. We included some other events as well like the Summer Salute and a Military Weekend at Tie Breaker Family Aquatic Center. Each of these events, some for families and some for just adults, we try to make everything free for our military," said Geraci.
