Community Events

The Algonquin Garden Club has planted a pollinator garden at the new Blue Star Memorial highway marker site. A rededication ceremony will be June 7, 2024 at 10am at the southwest corner of Route 31 and Huntington Dr./Main St in Algonquin IL.

At the rededication, American Legion Post 1231 will present the flag and pledge of allegiance. An invocation prayer will be given by Pastor Jeremy Latzke of St. Johns’ Lutheran Church and the Star Spangled Banner will be sun by Monica Brubaker. The History of the Blue Star Program will be given by Algonquin Garden Club long time member Cathy Zange. Debby Sosine, Village of Algonquin President, will be in acceptance of the Blue Star Marker.

During the construction of the roundabout at the north side of Main Street, the Blue Star Memorial was removed and now has been relocated to the new site. The original dedication was on May 28, 2001.
