Colleyville Garden Club will be hosting a ceremony to re-dedicate its Blue Star Memorial marker and celebrate Veterans Day on November 11, 2019, at 9:30 am. The celebration will be held at the park on the northwest corner of Highway 26 and John McCain. Parking will be available across Highway 26 at Bear Creek Spirits & Wine. The Colleyville Police Department and the Colleyville Citizens on Patrol will be assisting with traffic and crossing Hwy 26.

The Blue Star Highway Memorial Marker was originally installed at this location on May 22, 1992 with a dedication ceremony. It honors all men and women who serve or have served in the United States Armed Services. The Blue Star Program was started in 1944 and adopted by National Garden Clubs in 1945 in tribute to our Armed Forces.
