HOW DOES THE BRANCH DO IT?
Our members volunteer countless hours to keep our Branch alive so we may continue to offer programs and services to our veterans, and support for our community.
From our dedicated executive members, who look after every aspect of daily operations, to our rank and file members who dive in to help with fundraising events, social and sports events, youth activities, kitchen and banquets, and so much more! It's these folks who are the very heart and soul of our Legion Branch, and we could never succeed in our mission without them.
