Stars for our Troops Inc. Star Parties
THANKING THOSE THAT SERVED OR ARE SERVING
For those in the Albany, NY area, there are meetings each month to create the Stars.
Find the one that fits into your schedule and join us.
IF THERE IS A TIME, THERE IS A STAR PARTY
We are slowly moving back to regular Star Parties.
Each Venue will have specific rules regarding what we can and cannot do.
Reservations are being received at the Facebook Event Calendar or on Meet-Up.
Reservations (yes response, not just interested) for each person are necessary by 3 PM on the day of the event to prepare the tables prior to 6 PM. Those not on the reservation list must wait outside until it is determined if there is space to participate. Anyone not feeling well, please do not attend. Call 518-235-1558 to remove your name from the reservation list by 5 PM the day of the event.
Everyone will bring their own drink and take the container home. No food will be available or brought to any Star Party at this time.
Masks are always to be worn. You may remove when sitting at a table if you choose. We are not supplying masks. If you do not have one, you may not participate.

If you have a facility that would like to have a Star Party, once a month, in any area of the NYS Capital District within 1 hour of Troy, arrangements can be made to have a Star Maker bring supplies to start a group in your area. Depending on distance, etc. and other activities, you will be the leadership of the facility.
Star Parties are held in nursing homes, at Boy and Girl Scout events, Key Club meetings, etc. and can be held at any time of the day. We like to schedule 2 hours for an event.
A group of people have started a Craft Group to create lap quilts for veterans in nursing homes and hospice. We are in the beginning stages, so anyone locally that is interested, please let Susan know.
Need a Speaker for your next event? Susan will bring supplies, and your members can create Stars while the meeting is going on. All Stars pouched during the meeting will be for your members to share.
