|FREE MEMORIAL DAY EVENING CONCERT
For a third year, Creekside Community Church in San Leandro will host a Memorial Day evening concert for the Blue Star Moms, and for the first time, for the Gold Star Moms as well. The Blue Star Moms is an organization made up of the parents, spouses, and relatives of our military service men and women fighting overseas. The Gold Star Moms represent the parents and loved ones of those who died in service to our country.
We believe that last two Memorial Days we were able to honor and encourage the Blue Star Moms by filling the church auditorium with well-wishers who supported them and their cause in prayer and with gratitude. The speaker the first year was retired Admiral Paul K. Arthur, US Naval Reserves, ret. Last year it was retired Col. Richard Klemmer, USMC, ret. A video KRON newsclip of the first year's concert is linked below. We also recorded the first year's concert and distributed almost 1000 CDs through the Blue Star Moms to the troops overseas.
This year we are honored to also have in special performance, the Air Force Band of the Golden West, Brass Quintet, from Travis Air Force Base.
Hope you can make it there this year!
