Star Party (Stars for our Troops)

Stars for our Troops will be holding a Star Party from 6 to 8 PM at Clear Channel Broadcasting, 1203 Troy-Schenectady Road, Suite 201, Latham, NY.

Stars for our Troops creates Thank You's for our military - those serving and those that served, from embroidered Stars from retired flags. We cut the fields of blue, known as the canton, from the old flags, then scissor off the embroidered stars. Into a plastic bag go one of those stars and given to a soldier or veteran with the following message:

"I am part of our American flag that has flown over a home in the U.S.A.  I can no longer fly. The sun and winds have caused me to become tattered and torn. Please carry me as a reminder thatYou are not forgotten."

Those attending should bring a drink and a snack to share. It is always a fun time. This is an all-age project.

Other cities in the Capital District having Stars Parties are on the website.

    The Star Party at Clear Channel has been lucky to have LT's Grill supply pizza and soda has been donated also. If you don't want to drink soda or eat pizza, bring what you want.
    I need to update the message, as so many people have found they forget to eat or drink anything while they are working.
    So glad that you are going to join us Tom. Feel free to bring a friend, as all ages participate.
