I love how Blanchard has a small time feel while also being a community that comes together as a big family. I've lived near Blanchard my whole life and have never really had something bad happen to me through the streets. My school is one of the major spots for the community and even though I did not go to the local elementary or middle school, my church and daycare are located within Blanchard, making it a place that has had a lasting impact in my memories. When it is my time to leave and go off to college, I know that I will forever miss Blanchard and always keep it dear to heart.

I love the character of Blanchard. We may be a little town, but there are so many people here to help and care for you. I would like to see more town involvement, and here lately, that has been happening. The whole town comes together for Christmas and the holidays to help those who can’t do things on their own.
Blanchard is a small town about 30 min from Shreveport. There is a library there and two dollar stores. Blanchard also has a bank.
