Yingling-Ridgely VFW Post 7472, Ellicott City Maryland, 21043

Home

Welcome to Yingling-Ridgely Post 7472
VETERANS OF FOREIGN WARS OF THE UNITED STATES
Ellicott City, Maryland
We have been serving the veterans and citizens of Howard County since 1946.  The Yingling-Ridgely Post of the Veterans of Foreign Wars has over 410 members and is the oldest and largest veteran's organization in the county.  Our beautiful facility boasts a renovated hall that is available for rental and a Canteen that will make you feel right at home.  The Post grounds rival any park, with a softball field; a pond; a beautiful covered pavilion with picnic benches and a bar-b-que pit; a playground; and a large lovely deck out back to enjoy watching the geese settle in the pond.

Come join us for the camaraderie, the familial and relaxed atmosphere and become a part of something special.  Join your brothers and sisters-in-arms for a great time.

Our post is dedicated to serving our community by providing a valuable service.  Our members enjoy all the perks of our post.  VFW Post 7472 has been widely recognized as being one of the best of its kind.

Our membership is growing at a steady pace.  With this growth we have been able to accomplish more and have a larger impact on our community.  We welcome you with open arms.  We are always looking for new members.  Look at the the eligibility qualifications and download an application (link to application temporarily has been disabled as of 10 February 2014 since we are updating the application).  Call 410-888-7472 or E-Mail us at membership@vfw7472.org if you have any questions.  Or, better yet, stop in the Canteen and talk to someone about membership in a world class veteran's organizations.

OUR POST CANTEEN
Our Canteen is a full service bar offering traditional beverages and snacks at reasonable prices.  It is open to members of the post and both auxiliaries as well guests.  The staff are also our true link to visitors and those who use our facilities for special events.  Occasionally we offer food nights so keep your eye on the Calendar link for when we will have a meal available.

During the appropriate season, we always have one of three televisions tuned to the game or event that you want to see and, if not, ask the staff.  During the football season there is always a good crowd for the 1 O'clock Ravens games where food is available.
