Yellow Ribbons & Posters

Beaver Island AmVets Post 46 acknowledges the patriotism and support of our military men and women shown by displaying flags, yellow ribbons, and posters supporting our brave military, nationally and internationally. Much time and money have been donated in honor of our valiant troops.

We also want to recognize Sally Davis, Peg Hoogendoorn, Nancy White, and Carol Wierenga for making, distributing, and placing the yellow ribbons throughout our community. Two miles of ribbon and 120 hours of their time in producing the ribbons, not to mention the many hours placing them, deserve a huge thank you!

We thank Michelle LaFreniere, along with the many Island youth who spent so much time designing their beautiful posters supporting our men and women in the military. Michelle is doing a great job helping to instill the patriotism that all Americans feel.
We will continue displaying the bows and patriotic posters until our combat soldiers return to American soil.
