Blue Star Memorial Dedication Ceremony
The Boonville Garden Club is inviting all area veterans to the dedication of a Blue Star Memorial Marker on Saturday, May 30 at 10 a.m. at the corner of W. Locust and Second streets on the Boonville Courthouse Lawn.
Garden clubs across the nation have arranged to place monuments honoring all of the veterans who have served our country in all of its wars at various locations. The Blue Star is emblematic of the blue star flags, which hung in the windows of families during World War II who had family members serving in the war. The Memorial Marker program specifically intends, however, to recognize veterans of every war or combat deployment involving friends, neighbors and kinfolk. Locally, the Boonville Garden Club has chosen a site on the Boonville Courthouse lawn on the southwest corner of courthouse square. Members of the garden club thank the County Commissioners in working to secure the location on the courthouse lawn. The Blue Star can be found in all 50 states. At present there are roughly 2,500 markers in the United States. Indiana had 55 markers at the end of 2018. Quite a few markers, including the one to be dedicated on May 30, have been made possible through the generosity of the Garden Club of Indiana, Inc. All area veterans are welcome and encouraged to attend Saturday’s dedication. This ceremony will take place, provided the mayor has opened the city of Boonville by this day. Just wear your masks and we hope to see you there.
