Blue Star Memorials
BLUE STAR MEMORIAL UPDATE
As the GCNC State chairperson for the Blue Star Markers, I am announcing the following marker dedications which will take place in our state in 2021 since there were no dedications in the past year. Please consider attending one or more of these special events honoring our service men and women who have served, are serving and will serve in the US Military. Did you know that our club has installed two markers one in Trent Woods near the Town Hall and the other Blue Star Highway Marker at Clarks Road Rest Area on Highway 70 East? What a beautiful site entering Craven County! Please contact me if you would like further information. Thank You, Paula Hartman
