Auxiliary

The American Legion Auxiliary was formed to aid The American Legion in carrying out the great program of peacetime service to America to which The American Legion is dedicated. All of our activities are designed to promote the work of The American Legion and to help The American Legion reach its objectives. Our members serve side by side with the members of The American Legion in a spirit of unselfish devotion to the well being of the American republic.

 

The women of the American Legion Auxiliary make a difference in the lives of all Americans. They educate children, organize community events and help our nation’s veterans through legislative action and volunteerism. The American Legion Auxiliary is the world’s largest women’s patriotic service organization with nearly 1 million members in 10,100 communities.

 

Auxiliary meetings are held the 4th Tuesday of the month at 7:00 pm.

Sons of the American Legion

The Sons is a program made up of the male descendents of members of The American Legion and deceased veterans who would have been eligible to join The Legion. Our primary responsibility is to assist with all of the wonderful programs run by The American Legion. We are dedicated to serving veterans and their families, working on projects that benefit the communities in which we live and promoting programs that benefit the youth of this nation. Each year, Sons throughout Indiana volunteer tens of thousands of hours and donate hundreds of thousands of dollars to many good causes. We help with flag education programs in schools, participate in patriotic events, conduct fundraising projects and work around our American Legion Post homes. Along the way, we have an awful lot of fun!

 

We value the freedoms that were paid for by the military service of our forefathers and mothers. We recognize their contributions to our nation’s success and we want to do all that we can to insure those freedoms are passed on to our children and their children’s children. In addition to providing funding and manpower for Post 215 projects, the LaGrange SAL Squadron 215 is a major fundraiser for many local charities.

 

SAL meetings are held the 2nd Friday of the month after the dinner (around 9:00 pm)

American Legion Riders

The American Legion Riders are members of the American Legion Family who are also motorcycle enthusiasts. The activities of The Legion Riders are limited only by the imagination of the members of the local Riders organizations, and many chapters have independently raised thousands of dollars for local children’s hospitals, schools, veterans’ homes, severely wounded servicemen and women, and American Legion scholarship programs.

 

Each American Legion Rider Chapter manages its programs at the post level, where all of the best ideas are born in the best American Legion “grass-roots” tradition.

 

The ALR meetings are held the 1st Tuesday of the month at 6:00 pm.
