Hinesville Mayor Jim Thomas signed his first official resolution Thursday. It authorizes a Blue Star Byway marker in downtown Hinesville. The Blue Star Memorial By-Way Marker was developed by the National Garden Clubs as a tribute to the men and women of the U.S. armed forces. The marker will be erected in Main Street Park at 2 p.m. on Wednesday and is sponsored by the Morning Glory Garden Club of Hinesville and the Oleander District of the State Garden Club of Georgia, in cooperation with the Department of the Army, Fort Stewart and the city of Hinesville. With Thomas are members of the Morning Glory Garden Club; standing (from left) Helen Stripling, Peggy Fraser and Carol Ann Blauvelt; sitting (from left) Judy Shippy, Thomas and Louise Stewart.
