Being Proclaimed a Yellow Ribbon City by Governor DaytonThe City of Cottage Grove was proclaimed a Beyond the Yellow Ribbon City in August of 2011 by Governor Mark Dayton.


What is Beyond the Yellow Ribbon?
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.

We do this :
By creating awareness through the Yellow Ribbon Community Campaign and synchronizing sustainable community support networks.

  1. Connecting and coordinating organizations, agencies, and companies to provide resources and support to Service members and their families.
  2. Delivering a series of formal Yellow Ribbon Training events to Service members and their families before, during and after deployment.
  3. Providing an opportunity for Minnesotans to support Service members and their families.

Beyond the Yellow Ribbon Meets the third Tuesday of every month in the Cottage Grove.
