Community Event

Beyond the Yellow Ribbon

Pine City began the process of becoming a Yellow Ribbon City soon after being recognized by Central Minnesota’s “Initiative Foundation” as the “Outstanding Community” in the region in 2009. A year later, the Pine City Area Yellow Ribbon Community began with the support of the City Council and has expanded to include all key areas of the community. They were proclaimed Yellow Ribbon on Dec. 14, 2011, by Governor Mark Dayton and Minnesota Adjutant General, Maj. Gen. Richard C. Nash.

A public meeting will be held on Monday, May 20th, beginning at 5:30 PM in hopes of renewing the support and commitment to serve the men and women who have so graciously given their all to our country.

All interested community members are invited to join this effort and attend the meeting at the Pine City Armory (located at 1305 Main Street South). Chair members, volunteers, supporters and ideas are welcome!
