Eagan Beyond the Yellow Ribbon
The mission to turn Eagan into a proclaimed Yellow Ribbon Community started in October, 2008. The city's goal was to support Servicemembers and families by providing awareness of the Yellow Ribbon initiative, and on Aug. 23, 2011, they were officially proclaimed Yellow Ribbon.
Eagan now meets once a month to review past accomplishments and plan future events such as the Red Bulls Welcome Home, Defending the Blue Line Hockey night, the Tribute to the Troops Run and Veterans Day programs. They have partnered with St. John Neumann Church, the Eagan American Legion and the Linoesses to widen the message of Beyond the Yellow Ribbon. Finally, the Eagan Network's steering committee helped plan the Eagan Memorial Park, providing a beautiful tribute to the military and first responders in the area.
