May 2017

The Beyond the Yellow Ribbon Network of Apple Valley exists to serve Veterans, those actively in the Military, and their families by assisting them any way we can. Your help and support has been and continues to be very much appreciated! Please join us by contributing your time and talents, and the special abilities you have.

Good to see many of you at the Apple Valley Home and Garden Show! Thanks for stopping by to say hello.

Some recent examples of how we have done this:

  • Last month we helped with a car repairs, household moving, and several referrals. If you are in need of assistance, know of a military family needing help, or if you can help provide assistance, such as lawn care, ride to VA or an appointment, home repairs, or car repairs, etc., please contact us 952-923-5014.
  • The monthly Military Appreciation Dinners are growing in attendance, but there is still room for you! We partner with the Legion to provide excellent meals, which BTYR serves to Veterans at no charge. Preregistration is requested – just RSVP at or leave a message on our phone at 952-923-5014. The next Appreciation Dinner is the 18th of May at the Apple Valley American Legion Post 1776.
  • If you were not at the April Appreciation Dinner you missed an excellent presentation by Len Hagenson. He recently returned from a deployment to Quatar. Many fascinating pictures and stories – and he answered questions from the audience. Thank you Len!
  • The May Appreciation Dinner Speaker is scheduled to be the 34th Division Commander, MG Jon Jensen, who is also a resident of Apple Valley. Please join us for a very interesting evening!
  • Please note we will not have an Appreciation Dinner in June or July due to the many activities of summer. Our next dinner after May is August 17th.

  1. I am from the Beyond the Yellow Ribbon group in Elk River.
    Several years ago you handed out very nice yellow cloth bags at the State Fair with the Beyond the Yellow Ribbon logo on them.
    We would like to get some of those same bags to hand out at our county fair parade this summer for the kids to collect all their candy from the parade.
    Can I have a name and phone number for someone in your group that might be able to help me?
    Thanks, John Dietz, Mayor of Elk River 763-9143-4933
