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

Members made and delivered a "patriotic" lap quilt to a Post member who now resides in a nursing facility. The Post sponsored a delegate to Buckeye Girls State 2021. During Warrior Weekend to Remember 2021 (August 4-8), the Post will adopt a Purple Heart recipient or a Gold Star family and send notes, cards, a care package, and prayers. To support a project by UC Blue Ash Dental Hygiene Department, dental waste (manual toothbrushes, empty toothpaste tubes, dental floss containers, and packaging) will be collected. We are resuming collection of the regular-size plastic "Kroger"-type bags. These will be passed on to someone who will crochet them 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 hope to begin fundraising projects this Fall by participating in craft fairs. We plan to sell crafts (made by Post members), "military" and "patriotic" bracelets, Legion comic books about our Flag, and baked goods
