American Legion to Honor Blue Star Families

Posted: Thursday, September 17, 2015

Ridgewood American Legion Post 53, a 501 (c) (19) tax exempt veterans' organization, would be privileged to have you partner with them to honor the families of currently deployed American military personnel. Every October the post hosts a dinner at Mount Carmel RC Church for all Blue Star families in our area. Approximately 100 local residents attend. This year's dinner will be October 16 at 6:30pm.

Since WWI a Blue Star banner proudly displayed in the window announced to the world that the residents of that house had a family member on military duty. The veterans of Post 53 have distributed over 50 banners to local families.

As America counted on them during their time of military service to protect our freedoms, local towns count on them during our time of community service to teach and demonstrate their freedoms to others. One key way is sharing our pride in our troops with their families. The Legion hopes you can join them.
