The American Legion Day—
All posts are encouraged to have proclamations issued in their communities declaring September 16th, “The American Legion Day,” signed by the city or town mayor or manager. Departments can obtain a similar document from their governor.
Legislative Division is working to get the House and Senate proclamations for this year.
The American Legion Day is an excellent opportunity to invite media to cover post events, highlight programs and explain to the public why their town is a Legiontown, USA. Prime venue to draw community support and recognition through open houses, charity fundraisers, disaster preparedness demonstration, 5K races, bicycle races, Legion Rider Poker Runs, “Going Back to School” ice cream social for teachers and facilities, Blue Star Banner ceremonies for active, Reserve and National Guard units and their families.
