This program has been active for years, a fitting tribute always and especially now.  Many states and regions have dedicated Blue Star Memorial Markers, but there is room for growth in some areas.  BLUE STAR GUIDELINES are now available online and can be downloaded at no cost from the NGC website, www.gardenclub.org/President's continuing projects/BlueStarMarker. This GUIDELINES booklet provides all the general information and procedures necessary to purchase and dedicate a Blue Star Marker, including instructions on how to apply for the NGC Blue Star Awards that are available to the clubs.
