The Community Service program promotes the American Legion Auxiliary’s visibility within our localities through our commitment to community, state and nation.  Our theme this year is “100 Years of Service not Self” and the symbol is Angels.

 

Special 100th Anniversary History Program Facts:

The national Community Service committee was established in 1926, during the term of Past National President Adalin Macauley of Wisconsin.  In 1934, during the term of Past National President Tess Carlson of Minnesota, a campaign was launched to make “good” books available to more Americans.  The Community Service committee carried out this program.

 

What is this program, and why do we have it?

By being visible in our localities, the Community Service program demonstrates who we are, what we do, and why we matter.

 

Some ideas of what we can do!    Be creative.

                  Community.
