If youíre already a member but need to send your annual dues in, please send them to Bobby at the above address. Our annual dues are only $25 and go a long way in defraying some of our expenses. As our treasury grows, we can do even more to support these events and honor those who pass. I am hoping to begin to acquire flag cases to send to the families of our deceased members with an etched glass front as a tribute to their service with the Blue Stars or supporting unit.
to see many of you in
