North Adams: Support group offered for military parents


The new Berkshire County Chapter for Blue Star Parents will hold its first gathering at 7 p.m. Thursday, July 14, at the American Legion, 91 American Legion Drive. The group is open to all military parents: Reserves, National Guard or active duty.

In addition to support and fellowship, the group will also work together to support local service members through programs like "Boxes of Love" founded by Blue Star Mother Patty Erdeski of Stamford, Vt., and local veterans groups.

Meetings will be held at 7 p.m. the second Thursday of every month.
