A Yellow Ribbon Community unites all areas within a community to create a comprehensive network that connects and coordinates agencies, organizations, resources and employers for the purpose of proactively supporting Service members, military families, and Veterans.
The Cities of Mendota Heights, Mendota and Lilydale merged with the West St. Paul Beyond the Yellow Ribbon to become the Northern Dakota County Beyond the Yellow Ribbon. By combining resources, the organization hopes to increase assistance across a larger geographical area. Neil Garlock, a veteran of the United States Marine Corp, serves as the current chair.
Businesses, volunteer organizations and other resource agencies are encouraged to get involved by contacting the organization at 651-259-2614 or visit the Beyond the Yellow Ribbon page.
