GATES MILLS—State Representative Marlene Anielski (R-Walton Hills) recently spoke at a Blue Star Memorial Dedication in Gates Mills.


Rep Anielski was invited to speak by the Gates Mills Garden Club and the Village of Gates Mills. She presented the Village of Gates Mills with a flag that was flown over the Ohio Statehouse to commemorate the ceremony.  


“It is our duty as legislators and citizens to do everything we can to honor and support our veterans as they have gone above and beyond to protect us,” said Rep Anielski. “We are indebted to our brave men and women in uniform year round, and should keep them in our thoughts and prayers and always personally thank them."


The Blue Star Memorial Project was first started by the National Garden Clubs, Inc., with the first memorial marker placed in Rhode Island in 1947. The purpose of the markers is to honor those who have served, are serving, or will serve in the military on behalf of the United States. The project was named after the blue star in the service flag, which typically hangs in the windows of homes and businesses to honor those in service. Currently, there are Blue Star Memorial Markers in all 50 states, creating a “string of blue starts” across the nation.
