JAMESTOWN – The area’s Blue Star Mothers group honored fallen American Heroes and their families Saturday during a Gold Star Memorial Service in Jamestown.








Held the Saturday before Memorial Day, the Lake Erie NY 4 Blue Star Mothers chapter hosts the service at Veterans Memorial Park remembering those who paid the ultimate sacrifice to their nation.

President of the group Susan Rowley says being able to host the ceremony this year means so much not just to her organization, but the families of fallen military members.





“To be back here after a year hiatus, I think it means more,” explained Rowley. “It was cold and rainy, but a lot of people showed up, it was a very, very special day.”

Rowley was joined by dozens of other Blue Star Families, area veterans, local elected officials to recognize the Gold Star heroes and their families; lighting a candle in memory.
