73th Blue Star (2014)
The Wayne Garden Club, in cooperation with the City of Wayne, dedicated a Blue Star Memorial on May 25, 2014. The marker is located near 3756 Wayne Road on the Veterans Plaza walkway, Wayne.
The dedication was held in conjunction with a local VFW following the Memorial Day parade. The ceremony began with the Wayne Memorial and John Glenn High School bands playing the Pledge of Allegiance and National Anthem. Jean Goetz from the Michigan Garden Clubs, Inc. spoke to the meaning and importance of this tribute. A wreath was placed at the memorial to commemorate the service of our Armed Forces, past, present and future.
This Memorial Day weekend ceremony was the Garden Club’s way of showing their respect and appreciation for the freedom and security the American Armed Forces continue to provide our country, lest we forget. The dedication concluded with the playing of Taps.
