Bonita museum joins Blue Star program

Published: May 30, 2021

The Bonita Museum & Cultural Center, 4355 Bonita Road, recently announced that it will join in the Blue Star Museums initiative, a program that gives free admission to serving U.S. military personnel and their families this summer.

The 2021 program is under way and ends Sept. 6. Among events planned are Flag Day ceremonies at 10:30 a.m. June 14, presented by the Military Order of The World Wars with the Daughters of the American Revolution, Girl Scouts San Diego and Scouting BSA; and a “Salute to the Military” golf tournament from 1-5 p.m. June 25 at the Chula Vista Municipal Golf Course, followed by a preview of the new exhibit “Permission To Come Aboard: The History of Navy Ship Design,” from 5-8 p.m. That event will feature a gala dinner and walk-through of the exhibit with curator and veteran Joe Frangiosa Jr.

Blue Star Museums is an initiative of the National Endowment for the Arts working with Blue Star Families, the Department of Defense, and museums nationwide. Find participating museums at
