The Hardin County Blue Star Mothers put together a poker run Saturday (07/15/2017) morning.

This is the second year that the Blue Star Mothers have put on the poker run.  All of the money raised will go towards sending care packages overseas at Christmas for those serving in the military.  Last year, the group was able to send over 250 packages.

The president of the Blue Star Mothers says that this event is a good way to continue to support loved ones overseas.  "We want to make sure that they know that we're thinking about them, send them a few comforts of home that they don't typically get from the service," said Kathy Tracy, president of the Hardin County Blue Star Mothers.  "The general thing is mainly just to let them know that we're thinking about them."

Another part of the event featured one of the members of the Hardin County Blue Star Mothers receiving a Gold Star flag after losing her son, who was serving in the military.
