Proto Labs Supports PBYR with a Generous Donation!!
I was delighted to participate in an event at Proto Labs on February 13, 2019 that was organized to help support Plymouth Beyond the Yellow Ribbon. We greatly appreciated Proto Lab’s invitation, support and trust!
Proto Lab’s very generous donation of $700.00 will be put to good use helping service members, veterans and their families in times of crisis or need. Proto Lab’s employees demonstrated great values and a lot of positive energy at the event ,especially in the bean bag game and the chili competition! Pictures of the event will be placed on PBYR.org.
PBYR is a proud member city of the Minnesota Beyond the Yellow Ribbon (BYR) network of 219+ Minnesota cities that have banded together to assist service members, veterans and their families. In April 2016, PBYR received a 5-year appreciation award for being a proud member of the Minnesota BYR network from General Nash, MN National Guard. This award is proudly displayed at Plymouth City Hall. In 2015 PBYR received certification from the IRS as a 501c3 non-profit corporation and as a result all donations are tax-deductible. PBYR has no paid staff and operates totally with volunteers.
Proto lab’s donation is greatly appreciated by PBYR!

Greenwood Elementary Students and Parents Donate to PBYR!!
On February 8, 2019 Kersten and I had the privilege to again participate in the Greenwood Elementary School Family Service Night. The school was very active with a commitment and effort to help others, even with the temperature outside very cold and the roads slippery.
The Greenwood students wrote beautiful letters and created art work for service members which are always warmly received and appreciated by deployed Minnesota soldiers. The Greenwood parents AGAIN generously donated Holiday, Cub and Target Gift Cards! Their very generous gifts will help PBYR distribute needed assistance to Service Members, Veterans and/or their Families that could use some emergency help.
PBYR greatly appreciates the support of Angela Leger and the Greenwood Elementary Parents and Students!!!
