The annual 2009 Phoenix Yee Fung Toy Family picnic drew about 200 relatives and friends at Encanto Park Sunday afternoon on November 1, 2009. The weather was great in the mid 70's and everyone enjoyed both the Western and Chinese foods which include the beef and broccoli, chow mein, and barbeque pork provided by New Hong Kong restaurant and Churches fried chicken. Hot dogs and chili beans cooked by vice president David Yee and Francis Woon. The women auxiliary led by Mary Sing Yee, Gail Yee, Jean Yee, and Lynn Kong served the food. Carrot Cake and soda was also served.


The highlight of the picnic was the raffle drawing. There were toys for children and Chinese food products for the adults donated by grand elder John M. Yee. The beautiful Sunday afternoon provided an enjoyable setting for family members and friends as adults visited and children played at the 2009 Yee picnic. Everyone had a good time. Each year it gets larger and better. We are looking forward for another successful picnic next year.

Kimberly Yee is Appointed to Arizona Legislature


Well-known policy advisor Kimberly Yee has been appointed to replace former Rep. Doug Quelland.

The Maricopa County Board of Supervisors made the selection on Aug. 2.

Yee was one of three names that precinct committee persons from Legislative District 10 earlier submitted to the board. The other two people nominated were Francine Romesburg and Henry Grosjean.

Yee has been in the public affairs arena for more than a dozen years.

She has served as director of communications and government affairs for State Treasurer Dean Martin

She was also deputy cabinet secretary to California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger, a senior research analyst in the Arizona Senate and a policy analyst for the State Board of Education in California Gov. Pete Wilsons administration.

In a news release, Maricopa County Supervisor Max Wilson said he nominated Yee after consulting with Gov. Jan Brewer and House Speaker Kirk Adams.

Yee, who is also running for the House in a contested primary, will serve the rest of Quellands term. Quelland was removed from office, and his seat declared vacant, in May.

Quelland fought hard to keep his seat after the Arizona Citizens Clean Elections Commission found last year that he violated campaign finance rules during his 2008 campaign for the House by paying a consultant to do political work with money from his business.

The expenditures, the commission argued, violated rules for publicly funded candidates.

Quelland denied the allegations, arguing that any political work done by the consultant was made on a volunteer basis and that he paid only for work done for his business.

He also said he was denied due process when his office was declared vacant.
