"Where The Warm Desert Breeze Meets The Cool Mountain Air"

Welcome To Yarnell Legion Post 79

THE NEW 2016 MEMBERSHIP CARDS ARE IN NOW! PLEASE RENEW EARLY FOR THE EARLYBIRD DINNER! Deadline is September 30th.

National is going to raise dues by $5.00, effective the first of January 2016. This means our annual dues will be going up to $35.00 on January 1st, 2016. Be sure to pay your 2016 dues this year to avoid the increase.

IN YOUR MAILBOX?

It was over a year ago that we stopped mailing out our newsletter with calendar, this was done because of the huge costs involved in the mass mailing. Recently it was asked, “if I pay for it can you mail me a copy of the newsletter?” So, the question is out there. Would you pay $20 per year to have this newsletter, along with the month’s calendar sent to your mail box?  Let us know.

We have a number of events going on the first half of this month, everyone is welcome to stop by and join in.

Starting at Noon on Labor Day (Monday, 7th Sept) we are having a Patio Party, serving burgers and hot dogs with sides for $6 a plate.

On Saturday the 12th, Mike Manone (candidate for Honorary Mayor) is sponsoring a Poker Tournament & Hot Dog Extravaganza! Prizes of $300, $200 & $100 respectively, will be awarded to the top 3 winners, a $40 entry fee gets you in. Coney Island and Chicago style dogs will be served for $6.

On Sunday the 13th we will host the 3rd annual “Yarnell Rising” BBQ. All proceeds benefit the Yarnell American Legion Family (Legion, S.A.L. & Auxiliary) scholarship funds. Pulled Pork sandwiches, coleslaw, beans & dessert will be served along with drink specials and live music performed by Mark Mulligan.

A big thanks to everyone that participated in our “Post cleaning party”.

Mondays from 10:00am till 6:00pm we are offering a “Beer and a Slice”, that is a slice of Pizza and a Natural Lite beer for only $3.00.

If you show your card before the bartender asks to see it, you get 25 cents off your second drink! “RED SHIRT FRIDAY” if you’re wearing a red shirt you get 25 cents off your first drink. Monday is HAT DAY; 25 cents off if you are wearing a hat!

THE NEW 2016 MEMBERSHIP CARDS ARE IN. PLEASE RENEW THIS MONTH FOR THE EARLYBIRD! AVOID THE DUES INCREASE & GET A FREE EARLYBIRD DINNER (November 6th)

For God and Country,

Al Lennert, Commander
