Blue Star Memorial Marker Dedication

The Blue Star Memorial Marker honors all men and women that serve in the United States Armed Services. This program began in New Jersey in 1944 when 8,000 Dogwood trees were planted by the New Jersey Council of Garden Clubs as a living memorial to the Vetrans of World War II. In 1945, the National Council of State Garden Clubs adopted the program and begun a Blue Star Highway system across the United States. Large Blue Star Markers line highways across our great country in all fifty states. You will often see them at rest pavilions or intersections.

Please join us on Tuesday September 26, 2017 when we will pay tribute to the men and women that have defended our United States of America by dedicating a Blue Star Memorial Marker. The dedication will begin at 10:00 o'clock in the morning at the VA Butler Health Care Center located at 353 Duffy Road, Butler PA 16001. Presented by The Butler Garden Club and The Southern Butler County Garden Club. Light refreshments will be served.
