A recent tragedy as a result of the Yarnell fire, which is still burning about 35 miles from Prescott has left 19 of our local firefighters dead as a result of their heroic battle with the wildfire. We are a community in mourning today as we seek to recognize the brave individuals who are no longer among us. If you were a family member, friend, or someone who would like to support the community during these unhappy hours I ask you to please join us in a memorial service which will be held at the following location and time:
YARNELL FIRE MEMORIAL SERVICE

START TIME: 4:00PM
DOORS OPEN: 3:00PM
LOCATION: Activity Center, Building 83

We must not forget to honor those who put their lives on the line for the good of the community, it takes a special type of individual to sacrifice their own well being in order to serve the interests of the community as a whole.
