Blue Star Memorial Highway Marker Rededication

November 13, 2021 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

Blue Star Memorial Highway

Calling all veterans and those who are proud of our outstanding veterans. November 11th is Veterans Day. It is also the 95th birthday of the start of Route 66. The VFW Post 5422 in Wilmington will be rededicating a Blue Star Memorial Highway plaque. This special location is directly alongside original Route 66 in front of the VFW.

They would like to see a large crowd, so the event will be held two days later on a Saturday November 13th instead of the 11th which is a Thursday.
This will be a solemn but joyful, fun event honoring our fabulous veterans and the mother of all roads, Route 66. Let’s help make this a wonderful tribute.

Time of event is TBD. Marker photo courtesy www.wayfinding.com.
