Blue Star Mothers of NH

Year in Review


NH Gold Star Mother's Day

This Sunday is NH Gold Star Mother's Day....

New Hampshire Gold Star Mother's Day is observed on the Sunday following Easter. On this day NH honors surviving parents and families of fallen service members -- specifically those who died while on active-duty.

The term "Gold Star" originated during World War I. Americans displayed flags in homes, businesses, schools and churches bearing a blue star for each Family member serving in the military. Families stitched a gold star over the blue star to honor those members who died during military service.

National Gold Star Mother's Day is observed on the last Sunday in September.

Please take a moment on April 8th to remember our NH Gold Star Mothers and the Gold Star Families of NH

Wreaths for Boscawen

Thank you to everyone who came out on a cold December morning to help lay the wreaths. The turnout was beyond what anyone could have expected and all feedback coming in following the event was positive.

As you can see from photos below taken December 26, 2017 most of the wreaths are buried in snow and ice. After speaking with Mike Horne, Director of the NH Veterans Cemetery it has been decided for safety reasons to postpone wreath pick-up until the Spring.

Should you have any questions you can email:
Please share this notice with family and friends.

Thank you and to a very Happy New Year!
