The Oneonta Veterans Club will host a Blue Star ceremony Tuesday at 7:30 p.m. for local families whose children are serving in the military.

Families of six active-duty soldiers will be presented with a Blue Star banner to hang in their windows, a tradition dating back more than 100 years, according to Wayne Gregory, manager of the Oneonta Veterans Club.

“The first ceremony was back in World War I and they’ve had them ever since,” he said.
