The city of Worthington will be officially designated as a Beyond the Yellow Ribbon community during a program on Saturday (King Turkey Day).
Saturday's ceremony will begin at 11:30 a.m. on the King Turkey Day stage, located at 10th Street and Fourth Avenue.
The designation means the city of Worthington is ready and willing to help families impacted when service members are called into action. Assistance can range from helping fix a leaky roof to providing monetary assistance for rent or other bills. The goal is to help families fill in gaps however and whenever it's needed.
Saturday's ceremony will include the presentation of a $1,500 donation from Buffalo Ridge Leathernecks, to be used by Worthington's Beyond the Yellow Ribbon program as it assists families of military men and women called up to active duty.
