Town Green Proclamation for Maple Grove Yellow Ribbon

City of Maple Grove Proclaimed a Beyond the Yellow Ribbon Community Celebration
featuring Rocket Club

Location: Maple Grove Town Green ( I’ll supply the address too)
Date/Time: Wednesday, July 10, 7:00pm 
Rocket Club Concert begins at 7:30 pm

Last August, Maple Grove began the process to become a nationally recognized Yellow Ribbon Community; A Yellow Ribbon City’s purpose is to unite all areas within a community to create a comprehensive network that connects and coordinates resources for the purpose of proactively supporting Servicemembers, Veterans and military families. Beyond the Yellow Ribbon cities are required to complete a sustainable action plan, which is then submitted to the Minnesota National Guard and Governor Dayton for final approval and issuance of an official proclamation.

More than 50 community members and leaders contributed to the success of our action plan and Maple Grove’s Beyond the Yellow Ribbon Community proclamation. We invite you to attend this exciting event for our community and share in the celebration!

To celebrate our proclamation, Rocket Club will be performing live after the Proclamation ceremony.
