Blue & Purple Star Lancers
Advisor: Mrs. Juster
Meets: Weekly in room 219
The Blue Star Lancers are LHS students who are dedicated to supporting our troops and their families. Why blue stars? The name of our group was inspired by the “Blue Star” movement that began during World War I when mothers of sons serving in the military hung a blue star flag in their windows. Blue Star mothers could then find each other and support each other through difficult times.
While any student is welcome to become a Blue Star Lancer, only students who have a parent/stepparent who is currently serving our country as a member of our armed forces (National Guard, Reserves or active duty) can be a Purple Star Lancer. Why purple stars? The color purple represents all branches of our armed forces and Londonderry High School is proud to have been the first high school in New England designated as a Purple Star School which lets everyone know that LHS is a military friendly learning community.

Meetings are held weekly, but some pre-show weeks are more intense than others. There are many moving parts to a smooth production, and their job is to be invisible. As an aide, you make contact with Pantene, the American Cancer Society, politicians, local companies, etc. In many ways, it is a thankless job, but the satisfaction of creating school spirit and pride, through your personal effort, is like no other.
