Newcastle Shell owners aim to give back with fundraiser

May 31, 2012

The Newcastle Shell station only has two stalls.

But owner Dennis Yarnell doesn’t view that as a limitation.

To him, it’s an opportunity to provide more one-on-one interaction with his customers.

By Christina Lords Dennis Yarnell and Beth Wideseth, the owners of the Newcastle Shell, recently organized the station’s first golf tournament to raise money for U.S. military veterans and the Fisher House Foundation.

In March, Yarnell celebrated the fifth anniversary of him and his wife Beth purchasing the station from its previous owner. Since then, he’s instituted several practices to bring back the feel of a service station of old.

He makes it a point to learn the names of his customers and even offers Free Full Service Fridays, where customers can honk their horn and someone from the station will pump their gas, and check their oil and tire pressure.

After the Newcastle community has given so much to him, Yarnell said he feels it’s time to give something back.

That’s one of the reasons why he and Newcastle Shell employee Joe Woo began organizing the first Newcastle Shell Charity Golf Event to benefit the Fisher House Foundation Veterans of America charity organization.
