Branson War II Blue Star Memorial Marker will have garden

Beginning in 1945, The Blue Star Memorial Marker Program of the National Garden Clubs, Inc; started honoring the men and women serving in the Armed Forces during World War II. The name was chosen for the star on the flags displayed in homes and businesses denoting a family member serving in the armed forces. From Alaska to Hawaii; Blue Star Memorials are extended across our nation.

You can be part of a historical event to take place in Branson on November 7th. The Shepherd of the Hills Garden Club will be honored to place a Blue Star Memorial at the Shepherd of the Hills Fish Hatchery. The over 40 members of the Shepherd of the Hills Garden Club will be creating a serene garden of reflection around the monument. More details about the event are forth coming.
