The Bar Harbor Garden Club will hold a wreath laying ceremony to honor all the men and women who have served in our nation’s armed forces. This ceremony will begin at 11:00 AM on Saturday, November 11th at the Blue Star Marker. The public, especially Veterans, are invited and encouraged to attend.
The Blue Star Memorial program began with the planting by the New Jersey Council of Garden Clubs in 1944 as a living memorial to veterans of World War ll. The Blue Star Highway system covers thousands of miles across the Continental United States, Alaska, and Hawaii.
The Blue Star Marker is located 1/3 of a mile from the head of Mount Desert Island on Route 3.
