This is the theme chosen for membership in the
American Legion Auxiliary. What is
your vision? Do you want to see more
veterans served by our organization?
Do you want to offer more girls the
opportunity to attend American Legion
Auxiliary’s “Cornhusker” Girls State
program each year? Do you want
to provide scholarships for youth to
continue their education beyond high
Meetings are held at the Elks Lodge, 5910 South 58th Street, at 7:00 p.m.
on the 2nd Tuesday of each month (except July and August). The Elks serve
hamburgers and fixings beginning at 6:00 p.m., and some members arrive early
to have a meal before the meeting. The cost is reasonable, and it gives everyone
time to visit.

¤ September 10th Unit 3 meeting with 2019 Girls State citizens as
special guests to report on their experiences while learning more about our
