What We Are Doing


MONTHLY MEETINGS

We have informative and engaging meetings every month on the 4th Saturday unless there is a holiday or a holiday weekend. In those cases we meet on the 3rd Saturday. We invite speakers to some of our meetings to educate us about veteran issues, American Legion programs, well-being, etc. We meet at the North College Hill City Building, 1500 W. Galbraith Rd. 45231. Originally the City Building was an elementary school so we meet in one of the classrooms courtesy of American Legion Post 37. Access to the classroom is through the rear entrance. Parking is available in the rear.




ON BEHALF OF VETERANS

We participate in a variety of activities that benefit our community of veterans. Here are examples of some of our work: : members participate in activities at Cincinnati VA including the annual veteran holiday gift basket assembly and distribution, coffee and donuts, annual National Veterans Baby Shower, Hope Squad training and activities, and “I Am Not Invisible” Project; support events at other American Legion Posts; gather clothing and hygiene items for women veterans at Volunteers of America; speak at schools and organizations; answer phones for People Working Cooperatively's “Ramp It Up for Veterans” Telethon; welcome home veterans attending Flightless Honor Flights; and support the North College Hill community.

Since COVID-19 hit our activities have been curtailed. However we have been able to do some things safely-distanced including: notes to at-risk veterans, constructing holiday cards for Cincinnati VA Hope Squad and social work staff to send to their clients, Drive Through Flu Shot Clinic, 100 Miles for Hope benefiting American Legion charities, collecting used clothing for Volunteers of America and Mary Magdalene House, and collecting “Kroger” plastic bags for a member's friend to crochet into mats for the homeless.



PARADES AND SUMMER ACTIVITIES

We are often asked to participate in community parades in the Tri-State. Recently we have enjoyed the North College Hill Memorial Day Parade, Bellevue-Dayton Memorial Day Parade, and Veterans Day Committee of Hamilton County Veterans Day Parade in Cheviot.

In late Summer or early Fall we have a cookout with our families.



FUNDRAISING

We are exploring new fund-raising activities since grocery store policies have changed. One idea we're considering is selling gift boxes made by a member. The boxes are made out of chocolate! These could be sold at craft shows.
