This week is purple-up week, a time to show support to all military families in our community. The Blue Star Lancers will be handing out purple ribbons during all lunches and asking for donations. All proceeds from this event will go to creating care packages and bundles to support and honor our troops.

The Blue Star Lancers are also asking everyone to wear purple on Friday, April 15 to show their support.
