History:

Founded in 1919, The American Legion Auxiliary has almost 1 million members from all walks of life. The Auxiliary administers hundreds of volunteer programs, gives tens of thousands of hours to its communities and to veterans.   Millions of dollars are raised to support its own programs, as well as other worthwhile charities familiar to Americans.  It is all accomplished with volunteers.

While originally organized to assist The American Legion, the Auxiliary has achieved its own unique identity while working side-by-side with the veterans who belong to The American Legion.  Like the Legion, the Auxiliary’s interests have broadened to encompass the entire community.

The American Legion Auxiliary is the world’s largest women’s patriotic service organization.  Through its nearly 10,500 units located in every state and some foreign countries, the Auxiliary embodies the spirit of America that has prevailed through war and peace.  Along with The American Legion, it solidly stands behind America and her ideals.

MEETINGS ARE THE FIRST TUESDAY OF EACH MONTH IN THE BANQUET HALL @ 11AM.
