Rachel Johnson has been appointed Yellow Ribbon Regional Outreach Coordinator for Northern Minnesota. She hopes to come to Morris on September 19 to meet with Morris officials. A program of the Minnesota National Guard, Yellow Ribbon Communities pull together many aspects of a community to provide support for Service members and military families. The Outreach Coordinator will provide network leader training, recruit volunteers, teach how to become a 501(c)(3), and assist with how the Yellow Ribbon network can be tied in with local events. Johnson will also work closely with the other Yellow Ribbon Regional Outreach Coordinators, Sammi Korineck for Central Minnesota, and Mike Windsperger for Southern Minnesota, to share programming ideas.
