It’s springtime in the community!


Whether you’ve been here a while, are new to the area, or arrive soon, it’s a great time to get out. Our Chapter is always working to help you grow, no matter where you go. 


Thank you to those of you who joined us for our first quarter events, including Play Attention at Kohl Children’s Museum for Military Day, Blue Star Families' tour of the Bronzeville Children's Museum, our Women's History Month Relax and Paint event, and today's Spring Fling and Egg Hunt!


Many of our events were made possible by the National Museum of the American Sailor. Thank you so much to the American Legion Auxiliary for your partnership on our Spring Fling event.


Join us for our Month of the Military Child Celebration at FUNTOPIA!


In celebration of April's Month of the Military Child, join Blue Star Families at Funtopia in Glenview for a fun night on Friday, April 28th from 5:30 — 8 PM CT!
