National Garden Clubs, of which CGCM is a chapter, has been committed to placing Blue Star Memorial markers in parks in honor of U.S. armed forces for more than 60 years. In addition to CGCM President Holly Evangelous, speakers included representatives of veterans groups, and city and state officials.
