In cooperation with Montana POW/MIA Awareness Association, Veterans of Foreign Wars Auxiliary #1116, and CTA Inc.

The Blue Star Memorial Program from National Garden Clubs honors all men and women that serve in the United States Armed Services. The Blue Star became an icon in World War II and was seen on flags and banners in homes for sons and daughters away at war, and in churches and businesses.

This program has been active all through the years to the present, a fitting tribute to our Armed Forces and especially now.
An RSVP to Helena Garden Club on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/HelenaGardenClubMT is appreciated.
