Mothers of children in service were served with moral support at the recent SCV Blue Star Mothers Chapter #91, 'A Night Under the Stars.'
Held at the Elks Lodge in Canyon Country, the event was organized by the local chapter of the organization for mothers who have children serving or who have served in the armed forces of the United States."
Gathering for a goal, the evening of dinner and dancing raised funds for the chapter's creation of care packages that will be sent to veterans as well as overseas troops during the holidays. From 5:30 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. families and friends gathered to honor service members and those who stay by the sidelines rooting for their safe return home. Chapter president Sandy Baer was on hand to welcome newcomers to the group and also recommence with veterans of the cause."I am glad that we are all able to come together in support of our troops and definitely each other," said Baer. "My son is in the Army and I know how it has affected me. Being able to reach out to other mothers who are going through something similar is really important to me. It helps a lot."
