Members of the Wright County Area Blue Star Mothers Chapter recently attended the 10th annual Tribute to the Troops event at the Medina Entertainment Center.

Tribute to the Troops is an organization of volunteers, supporters and participants that have joined together to raise awareness of sacrifices made by America’s fallen heroes and their families. Throughout the weekend of Sept. 6-8, volunteers and supporters visited families of Minnesota fallen heroes, active military at Camp Ripley and other various organizations and then celebrated heroes with a benefit concert by co-founder Rockie Lynne. Wright County Blue Star Mothers supported this event by hosting a sales table. They also participated in the memorial by reading names of Minnesota fallen heroes.

The Wright County Area chapter of Blue Star Mothers is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization promoting the support of military children, veterans and mothers. The group welcomes new members.
