The city of Maple Grove will host a Beyond the Yellow Ribbon Kickoff event Tuesday, Aug. 14, at 7 p.m. at the Town Green, 7991 Main St. N. There will be an ice cream social as well during the kickoff event.

The public is invited to attend this free event.

Maple Grove is beginning the process of becoming a Yellow Ribbon City to show its support of military families in the community.

Beyond the Yellow Ribbon is a comprehensive program that creates awareness for the purpose of connecting service members and their families with community support, training, services and resources. It’s neighbor supporting neighbor.

The committee is looking for support and volunteers from all areas of the community for the event.

The Maple Grove Yellow Ribbon Network is looking for volunteers to help coordinate the resources available and help proactively acquire donations in the form of services, discounts and funds. For more information and to get involved with the MGYRN contact: [email protected] or on Facebook at
