Volunteers repair Blue Star Marker



BAR HARBOR — The VFW and Bar Harbor Garden Club thanked club member Tom McIntyre and Ozzie Watterson, husband of Club member Alana Watterson, at their Veteran’s Day wreath-laying ceremony.

The pair reset the pole for the Blue Star Memorial Marker, located on Route 3 near the head of the island. The pole had shifted in winters past.

The Blue Star Memorial Marker is a project of the National Garden Club honoring all veterans. The Bar Harbor Marker is maintained by the Bar Harbor Garden Club and honors Bar Harbor native Capt. Ernest Joy of the U.S. Navy Medical Corps.

The Bar Harbor Garden Club is a member of the St. Croix District of the Garden Club Federation of Maine and the National Garden Club Inc. Visit www.barharborgardenclub.com.
