Chanhassen Celebrates Veterans Beyond the Yellow Ribbon

This past Saturday there was a very successful event held at the Chanhassen American Legion to celebrate Veterans Day as well as the designation of Chanhassen as a Beyond the Yellow Ribbon community.

Col. Glen Bloomstrom was the keynote speaker. BTYR communities create support networks, connect and coordinate organizations, agencies, and companies that can provide resources and support to service families, provide training events to families before, during and after deployment and provide the greater community an opportunity to be involved in meaningful ways.

“Beyond the Yellow Ribbon is all about reaching out to vets and their families,” said Terri Cheung, one of the event’s organizers, “especially to those who served after 9/11 and recent vet families. We want to enable them to connect with the community, to know that we are here to volunteer and support all of our military families. This breakfast is our first outreach to the greater community.”

The BTYR event also celebrated the 237th anniversary of the United States Marine Corps.
