Welcome To Yarnell Legion Post 79

Our Post meeting day has changed! We now meet on the Second Saturday of the Month. Same time, same place, different Saturday. This month our meetings are on Saturday the 13th of July.

Our American Legion Post has received an award for 100% membership. Thank you to all of our members. The 2020 membership cards are in. You can stop in and pay your dues anytime and receive an Early Bird Stamp.

We have up to date information at the Post about the new “VA Mission Act”. Stop by the post if you would like to pick up some information to read.

I would like to thank all who help out at the post. Sometimes what you do may seem like a small thing, but it’s always a large thing to me. Thank you Volunteers.

New information concerning Legion Auxiliary. Dear American Legion Family and Friends, for a century, the American Legion Auxiliary has strongly supported Legionnaires, American Legion Posts, Veterans, Service Members and the Youth of our Nation. Since its inception, the Auxiliary’s membership has been limited to
wives, daughters and granddaughters of those eligible to join The American Legion. However, at the 2019 Spring Meetings, The American Legion National Executive Committee voted to replace the word “Wife” with “Spouse” in its constitution and bylaws section regarding the American Legion Auxiliary’s membership eligibility.
