The Blue Star Mothers Chapter 1 meets the third Thursday of each month at the Willmar Armory. The parents of military meet for support and to pack boxes to send to deployed troops. They are collecting snacks, hygiene products, paperback novels and notes to be included in the packages. Donation boxes are available at Heritage Bank and the Willmar Armory. If you want them to include someone you know who is deployed, send the name and address to Blue Star Mothers, Box 206, Pennock, along with your phone number.
