A ceremony held Oct. 24 was attended by members of the museum foundation and the garden club, as well as leaders of the China Lake and Indian Wells Valley communities. The Blue Star program was started by garden clubs in 1944 to honor servicemen and servicewomen. “The Blue Star Memorial Marker is our way of showing the Armed Forces that we do care and do appreciate the freedom and peace we have in our land,” said a spokesperson. — Photo by Laura Austin
