Auxiliary

Founded in 1919, The American Legion Auxiliary has nearly 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, and raises millions of dollars 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.

If your grandparent, parent, spouse, or siblings are a veteran, membership per year is $20.00 and junior membership is $3.00.  Monthly meetings are held on the first Thursday of each month at 5:30 p.m. at Rought Hall.

We urge the members new and old alike to come out and meet with us. We would love to have more active members. Even if you are not a -go to meeting person- we would love to have you as a member. There are many things you can do without attending meetings. We work on various programs involving veterans, the community and youth projects. Let us know if you are available to assist with dinners, other fundraisers or just baking a cake for an event.
