Toast to our Troops in Amherst

To the Editor:

Please join us, the Blue Star Mothers of New Hampshire, on Sunday, July 6, for our first annual “Toast to our Troops” at the beautiful LaBelle Winery, 345 Route 101, Amherst. This will be a fun filled afternoon of wine tasting with food pairings, raffles and 50/50 drawing. Our own Blue Star Dad and professional voice over artist Larry F. Murphy will be our master of ceremony.

The event runs from 1-3 p.m. Tickets are $30 a piece and can be purchased from our website www.bluestar
for more information you can contact us at bluestarmothers

Tickets must be purchased before Thursday, June 26. The first 130 ticket holders will also receive a complimentary wine glassed etched with “Toast to our Troops” as a thank you for your support.

We have some great raffle items … Salmon Falls Pottery, signed hockey puck by Jonathan Quick of the L.A. Kings and Coach of the U.S. Olympic hockey team, gift certificates for dining out at many of our New Hampshire restaurants, cruise tickets for the Mount Washington, just to name a few.

The mission of Blue Star Mothers of NH is to support our men and women who are serving our country around the world. Although our mission will never change, time has come to adjust our focus and provide greater levels of support for our valued veterans. This can be done in so many ways – providing meals at local vets centers, helping out at our local homeless veteran shelters, getting involved in local colleges who have set up special educational veteran centers, and the list goes on.

We owe these men and women so much. Anything that we can do for them is warmly accepted and greatly appreciated.

We look forward to seeing you at the “Toast to our Troops.”
