The American Legion Auxiliary is the largest patriotic women’s service organization in the world. The organization sponsors volunteer programs on the national an local levels, focusing on three major areas; veterans, youth, and the community.
The members of Greece Post #468 have approximately 185 members and are very active in helping local veterans either in Post #468 or the Rochester Outpatient Clinic. We also volunteer our time at Canadagiua Veterans Hospital. Most of our veteran programs are financed by our Annual Poppy program during the month of May. We participate in Veterans Day and Memorial Day programs and the Post Turkey and Ham Raffles.
We sponsor a young lady to Empire Girls State each year. We gladly contribute to scholarship funds and are involved in the Christmas program at the Salvation Army. We also volunteer our time to help out the many post events that are geared towards the children in our community. These include Christmas and Easter programs.
Community is a big focus of the auxiliary. We participate in many community service projects. These include Bingo at Monroe Community Hospital, helping needy families in Greece, making lunches almost every Saturday at the Post Home and lunches for members who have lost a loved one.
Our meeting are held on the 3rd Wednesday of each month at 7:30pm in the hall upstairs. The only months we do not meet are; Jan, Feb, July, and August but the officers are still available to carry on business. Dues are $20.00 a year and we begin collecting them in June and they must be paid by Jan 1st.
