The Association commissioned a Gold Star Mothers Memorial Statue, designed by renowned artist Andrew Chernak, to honor New England mothers and families whose sons and daughters made the ultimate sacrifice while serving in the Armed Forces of the United States of America.
The Memorial Statue is at Stanton Plaza, on Elm Street across from Veterans Park in Manchester, NH.
The NHGSMMA is currently working to raise $5,000 to provide for future maintenance of the statue, to support the annual display of holiday wreathes, and for the planting of spring flowers. Also, a portion of the $5,000 will be used to fund the development of an educational program oriented to educating students in grades 8 thru 12, and the public, about "What is a Gold Star Mother-Family" and "The Country's History of Gold Star Mothers."
A committee of volunteers formed the New Hampshire Gold Star Mothers Memorial Association (NHGSMMA) in order to raise funds, commission, plan, and manage the completion of this Memorial. The Association dedicated the memorial on May 1, 2011.
The NHGSMMA was approved as a 501(c)(3) Tax Exempt Public Charity on August 3, 2007 by the IRS and the NH Office of the Attorney General Trust Unit.
