American Legion: A Powerful Factor for Good
"The American Legion: A Powerful Factor for Good," celebrates the 100th anniversary of it founding, the first convention being held November 10, 1919 in Minneapolis. While the Grand Opening was celebrated in March with color guard, Legionnaires and many visitors in attendance, the exhibit is now again open during regular posted hours. The display includes the Post 77 parade Hack, a motorcycle from the Legion Riders who raise funds for many causes, particularly affecting veterans, the Quilts of Valor and activities of the Legion Auxiliaries. Featured are local student representatives set to Girls and Boys State and the youth activities such as the Legion Baseball program. Interactive elements for children and adults are now available as take home activities, including making a poppy, a 3-D star and a word ladder to complete.
