Members of the Northeast Garden Club of Tallmadge had the privilege of unveiling the Blue Star Memorial last weekend.

On behalf of our members, I would like to thank all the generous people who helped make this tribute possible.

First, thanks to Mayor Dave Kline who helped with all the details, and to the city workers who installed the plaque and made the cemetery look so beautiful. I'd also like to thank all the private citizens, businesses and organizations who helped monetarily, and gave so generously to this cause. Tallmadge citizens can always be counted on for support and help. And of course, a big thank you to all the veterans who bravely risk their lives to defend our freedom.

Memorial Day is such a great way to show our appreciation for a job well done.

Diann Vogliano, President, Northeast Garden Club
