Yearly Projects

Community and School support:
  • The Americanism Essay contest each spring. We read all submitted essays and pick winners. Winners are invited to our Legion meeting in April  where they read their essays and receive their prizes. We also honor the teachers who support this event.

  • Spring Interview of teens to attend The American Legion Auxiliary’s Girls State during the summer. Come fall the girls report back on what they did during that week.

  • Celebration of American Education Week in November by giving all Goochland Schools a basket of goodies for the staff.

Our support of Veterans and active-duty Military:
  • Poppy Weekend

  • Memorial Day Ceremony

  • Provisions for homeless veteran shelters located in Richmond.

  • Support for units and patients at the Veterans Administration McGuire Medical Center 

  • Ft. Lee families including active duty and Gold Star families

  • National Guard stationed at Sandston

  • Operation Homefront activities which support military families

  • Participation in Quilts of Valor where we make the quilts and then present them to our Legion members

  • Veteran’s Day Ceremonies and supporting veterans in the classroom activities.

 

Fundraising so we can support our activities
  • Annual Spring Yard Sale which involves collecting, pricing and selling donated items. While the actual sale takes place on a Friday & Saturday there is a lot of behind the scene work leading up to it.

  • Spring Bazaar and our Christmas in September Bazaar.  These Bazaars require a lot of hands-on staffing and there are many ways to be involved during these events.
