Letter: Grateful for donations

To the Editor:

The Blue Star Banner Program has a mission to honor the active duty members of the military from  the city of Crystal Lake along with city government employees who are active duty. We are very grateful to Marsha Hammond, Sharon Pfaff and Carl and Eileen Marhoefer, and Tad Walters of Service Plus Insurance Agency for their generous donations to our program.

Without the support of community members we could not continue to recognize and celebrate the accomplishments of our military members. These men and women sacrifice so much for our freedom and we feel it is an honor to highlight them as our city’s heroes.

We are touched when we receive compliments from city residents on the banners suspended from light poles along the section of Route 14 known as Heroes Row. Each person or business that donates makes the purchase of these beautiful banners possible.  

Thank you for your support!

Donna McAnally

Chairperson
