Thank you Caribou Coffee!

Caribou Coffee locations across the state take packages of Caribou Reindeer Blend Coffee as donations for nonprofits over the holiday season. The Little Canada Caribou collected coffee over the last month to donate to the DAV of MN. The DAV of MN brought this coffee to the Ft. Snelling Memorial Rifle Squad for their volunteer members who perform the burial ceremonies for our fallen comrades.

DAV MN & DAV Ch. 13 Grand Rapids Partner for Town Hall

On December 8, 2016 the DAV of MN and Chapter 13 partnered up for a town hall event in Cohasset.
This was an excellent event where local Veterans got the opportunity to discuss state issues with their legislators. In attendance were the newly elected State Senator and both Representatives for District 5. This was a great opportunity for these new legislators to transition from campaigning to governing.

The local chapter did a great job securing an excellent venue at the community center and supplied a free meal to all Veterans and family members in attendance. Even with some rough weather we had 50 Veterans in attendance.
