American Gold Star Mothers Memorial Day Event


Written by Administrator Friday, 16 May 2014 16:22

The American Gold Star Mothers is an organization of mothers who have lost a son or daughter in the service of our country.  They are hosting a three day event at VOA Park in West Chester during May 24-26 to try to re-establish the original meaning of the event and capture the true feeling of the cost of freedom and the sacrifices made by our sons and daughters.

[Editor’s Note:  The Ft. Hamilton Boy Scouts District Committee is requesting Scouts and Scouters to support a very special one-time project this month.  Please read the following message about the Gold Star Mothers Memorial Day event coming up on May 24-26 and find a few hours on one or more of these days to support this meaningful and impactful event for our community.]

How Can Scouts Help Over Memorial Day Weekend?

They very much need the help and assistance of our local businesses and organizations, Scout groups, veteran groups, and military organizations in the SW Ohio communities to help with this event.
