"Happy New Year!
Grand Junction has been selected for the site of the National Blue Star Mothers 2010 Convention Aug. 10-14 at the DoubleTree Hotel.
The Grand Valley Blue Star Mothers, Colorado Chapter 4 celebrated its second anniversary earlier this month and is adding new members. It has been a busy year for the military family support organization as members have participated in numerous activities for both young and old. In addition to offering a Christmas party to active military children, one of their ongoing projects is Operation Melody, which collects musical instruments to give to veterans.
The chapter’s business meetings are at 6:30 p.m. the second Tuesday of each month. The support meeting is at 7 p.m. the third Wednesday of each month at First Christian Church.
