YOU would be a great addition to our membership!! When you support our Auxiliary, you support our Veterans.  The Auxiliary holds two fundraisers per year allowing us to help Veterans acquire service dogs along with free training through K9s for Veterans.  Other successes include raising funds to help support Wreaths Across America, Manteno Veterans Home, Wounded Warriors In Action, and the New Lenox Fire Protection District Foundation among others.  In addition, our members enjoy hours spent at Veteran events, getting to know our Nation’s heroes having quality time and conversations that are unforgettable.  We cannot continue without your help.  Please join the Auxiliary today (applications are at the Post).  Our meetings are every second Thursday of the month at 7 pm at the New Lenox American Legion.  Will you help us help our Veterans?
