Blue Star Markers
This marker is a symbol of gratitude to all of the men and women who have served to protect our country. Garden Cubs of Illinois, District IX, is a large area starting at the Wisconsin border going South to I 90, and from Lake Michigan as far West as the McHenry County border. It is truly an honor to have a Blue Star Marker located in downtown Mount Prospect, where 1000's of people will pass it everyday. Typically these markers are located at National Cemeteries, Parks or rest areas along the highways.
District IX, Garden Clubs of Illinois would like to thank all of the Mount Prospect Officials who have helped make this happen.
Thank you all who joined us on May 19, 2019 for the dedication of the first District IX sponsored Blue Star Marker!
In 2023 The Rolling Meadows Garden Club dedicated their Blue Star Memorial Marker.
