POSTPONED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE - Gold Star Luncheon (Invite Only) 

The term Gold Star family is a modern reference that comes from the Service Flag. The nation recognizes the sacrifice that all Gold Star Family members make when a father, mother, brother, sister, son, daughter, or other loved one dies in service to the nation. Every year following the ceremony a Gold Stay Luncheon is held to honor these family members.

If you have any questions about the day of activities please contact our office at (413) 594-3470.
