100_0880.jpg11:23 a.m. - Boone Mayor Loretta Clawson declared this week National Blue Star Mothers of the High Country week.


“It’s just a wonderful organization and they give each other support.  They’re planning some projects like sending some boxes over to our guys in service and I think that is just a wonderful thing for them to be doing.”

Blue Star Mothers spokesperson Kimberly Isler said, “The proclamation recognizes the organization and its goal to provide support for acdtive duty service personnel, promote patriotism, assist veterans organizations and be available to assist in homeland volunteer efforts to help our country remain strong.”

The chapter started in January and has already been involved in several activities like the Boone Christmas Parade and packing boxes for our troops overseas.

The organization will hold their monthly meeting on Sunday afternoon at 2:00 at the National Guard Armory in Boone.
