Minnesota Veterans Day on the Hill is an annual Event. About 1000 veterans, from across the state, gather at the state capitol in St. Paul to meet with legislators and push for veteran friendly legislation.
A bus from Bemidji brings veterans to Motley where locals board for the trip to St. Paul. This is paid for by the DAV, including meals, on this full-day trip, arriving back in the early evening. All veterans and family members are encouraged to be a part of this event.
Details: Wednesday, March 20, 2019. 10:30 am pre-rally free lunch, 12:45 pm veterans march to the capitol, 1:30 to 2:30 pm rally in the capitol rotunda. The local contact person is Brainerd VFW Senior Vice Commander Dave Meyer. Call 218-839-2653. You need to tell him in advance to get a seat on the bus.
