Farmington Yellow Ribbon program hits a milestone
It was a warm, early summer evening back in 2008. A smattering of 50 or so people sat scattered around the cafetorium at Meadowview Elementary School. They were there to hear about a new concept called “Beyond the Yellow Ribbon.”
That’s what it was back then — only a concept. It was an idea for a network to support military men and women and their families. And Farmington mom of a soldier Annette Kuyper was right in the middle of it.
