Minnesota Remembers:
CANCELED at Fort Snelling National Cemetery for 2020

Focus turned to Flag Requests & Fundraising

May 14th, 2020

—We are saddened to confirm Minnesota Remembers Memorial Day Event has been canceled for 2020. In addition to following strict federal orders, it is our genuine concern to keep our patriotic supporters safe and healthy during these questionable times.

Fundraising for the Legacy Flag-

A permanent collection for Fort Snelling National Cemetery to last for generations.

The new flags will be an incredible savings for the environment and our bottom dollar. While the Minnesota Remembers event was effectively canceled for 2020, it doesn’t mean our patriotism has!

Let’s use this season to remind our online friends, family, schools, companies, organizations, VFWs and Legions of the FFFS Mission. Minnesotan’s are rebuilding this tradition together, and we need your help getting the permanent flags we need to sustain it. Ideally, we’ll come back on Memorial Day 2021 armed with these new, beautiful, retractable staffs that will protect each of the 250,000 American flags the way they deserve!

Thank you for your continued support from our Forever Americans!

We understand that this news might be met by a variety of feelings:

♦ There are many who have expressed their interest to gather up their own followers and place the flags for us. They are feeling patriotic and while we encourage that energy, we remind everyone there is absolutely no gathering at Fort Snelling to place flags beyond your own personal visit to the cemetery. FFFS Flags will not be available for volunteers to place this year.

♦ There have been calls asking to volunteer in other ways to keep the Memorial Day Spirit alive despite Covid-19, and we cannot agree enough! We would love other assistance with fundraising, making calls and sending emails to local organizations to introduce them to our cause. Reach out to 763-296-3524

 Others want to know more about The Legacy Flag we are trying so hard to raise the funds for. We are encouraging donations and always taking fundraiser support and ideas- Contact us today!
