Yellow Ribbon Rendezvous


Images all too powerful and all too common — photos of children and spouses, American flags waving in the air as they say goodbye to their loved ones on deployment. It’s a sight, and reality, for many these days.

But the Beyond the Yellow Ribbon initiative, along with Cragun’s Resort, is sponsoring an event to give back to those families with the Yellow Ribbon Rendezvous, Feb. 24-26.
