Attend kick-off event to name  North Branch a ‘Yellow Ribbon City’

Updated information: Due to the North Branch High School being closed due to the cold, this event has been postponed.

The city of North Branch is beginning the process of becoming a Yellow Ribbon City to continue to show support of service members, veterans and military families in the community. 

To kick off the process, the public is invited to a Kick-Off Event on Thursday, Feb. 13, at 6 p.m. at North Branch High School Auditorium.

Inclusion in the organization will allow a sign to be placed at all entrance signs to the city proclaiming the designation. 

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

The committee supporting veterans includes educators, elected officials, employers, faith-based organizations, public safety/judicial, medical and social services organizations, veterans and civic organizations and volunteers from the community.
