We will hold this year’s annual membership celebration at Yee-Haw Brewing in Johnson City, TN.
When: May 18 from 6 to 8 pm
Take Exit 23 to TN-91 SE/E Market St. from I-26, and head towards downtown Johnson City (right if coming from Kingsport/left if coming from Asheville). Please note — E. Market St. is a ONE WAY street. The road will take a slight curve to the right and become W. Market St. At the next intersection, take a left on Commerce St, and then another immediate left onto W. Main St. (another ONE WAY street). The Johnson City Farmer’s Market and parking will be on your right. LOOK for our SAHC event sign! At the end of the parking lot, take the pedestrian crossing across the railroad tracks to the Appalachian Spring celebration at Yee-Haw Brewing Co. (look for our bright green tent outside the back of the building). Registration will be located around the building at the front (near the water tower).
Please note: There is limited parking available at the front of Yee-Haw Brewing (near the water tower) — but please help us leave these spaces open for people who may have difficulty walking over from the Farmer’s Market.
Join us in celebrating 43 years of conservation and more than 70,000 protected acres!
“Thanks to the tireless efforts of SAHC, there is now a far greater awareness and deeper appreciation for our region’s natural treasures,” said David Ramsey, former SAHC Trustee and manager at Mahoney’s Outfitters. “From the world renowned Roan Highlands to Hampton Creek Cove State Natural Area, and more recently our brand new Rocky Fork State Park, we see the amazing work of SAHC in the protected mountain landscape of Northeast Tennessee.”
Enjoy good times with friends and music by Redleg Husky (an Americana band from Asheville, NC), raffle to win exciting prizes, and savor a few of Yee-Haw’s local brews.
“Yee-Haw Brewing Company is very excited to host the SAHC membership event, on May 18th,” says David McDaniel, Yee-Haw Taproom General Manager. “It is our goal to help organizations like the SAHC succeed and be effective, and, in turn, ensure the success of the region around us.” Yee-Haw Brewing will donate $1.00 to SAHC from each beer sold at the event!
Help honor our 2017 Stanley A. Murray Volunteer of the Year award winner and recognize the commitment of devoted Trustees and volunteers.
This is a family-friendly event, with outdoor games.
Tickets: $15 at the door (advance ticket sales have closed)
Food will be available for purchase onsite from White Duck Taco (starting at $3.50/taco).
