Memorial Day In ‘Crown King Style’

After the Yarnell Fire last year, Sandy & Gerry from the General Store, along with several locals, rode their quads to Yarnell to help the local community and share their support for Yarnell residents & businesses. During their stay they met a fabulous musician named Denise Roggio and made lots of new friends.  Denise, along with a dozen or more friends, traveled to Crown King this weekend to help support our American Legion.

    What a fabulous and fun filled weekend. Crown King is a great little place filled with friendly people that want to party. We stayed at the Assayer’s Hideaway; a short 1/4 mile walk from “downtown CK.” I would definitely stay there again. Melinda is a great hostess and we had everything we needed. Denise was beautiful as always – despite the allergies and congestion- you sang on my friend, for three afternoons. Dancing, laughing, meeting new, very delightful people, fresh air and sunshine – who could ask for more. Awesome time – thank you all, friends from Yarnell and new friends from Crown King – for a wonderful time. And for continuing on my birthday celebration for a week. Love that!
