Minnesota Military Family Tribute

by Cindi Sutter, Founder of The Spirited Table®

It is my great pleasure to share the vision of Bill and Teri Popp. The Mission of the Minnesota Military Family Tribute...Join them at the dedication ceremony on June 13, 2015. 

To build a Tribute on the State Capitol Mall in St. Paul, Minnesota that will forever stand as a thank you to every military and veteran family member—past, present and future. A military or veteran family member is defined as a spouse, significant other, child, parent, grandparent, sibling, or any other person a member or former member of our U.S. military defines as family.
