Benefits

One of the benefits of being a member of the American Legion is our club room, where we serve foods every day except for Sunday. We conduct ceremonies with local officials to commemorate events in American history, such as 9-11 Remembers and Pearl Harbor Remembers. These hour-long ceremonies include flag posting, and afterwards, we offer refreshments.
