(No meeting in July)
The American Legion Auxiliary is the world's largest patriotic service organization. Through its nearly 10,500 units located in every state and some foreign countries, the Auxiliary embodies the spirit of America that has prevailed through war and peace. Along with The American Legion, it solidly stands behind America and her ideals.

Message from the unit president:

I would like to welcome you to the Gold Star Unit 191’s web page. I would like to tell you a little about what we do for our veterans and the community. During the current pandemic, we are still helping others. We just awarded four deserving students $1,000 scholarships. Unit members collected $1,250 in crossword books, art supplies and paint-by-numbers sets, and playing cards for veterans at Martinsburg VA Hospital. One member sewed over 400 masks for the VA Hospital and MCVETS in Baltimore. Some members are writing cards to shut-ins while others are baking and delivering meals.

If you would like more information, feel free to contact us at our email.

Cross In My Pocket

We are Making Cross in My Pockets to send to the troops. We can use more help cutting canvas, sewing the pockets together, and crosses. Also, labels get put on the plastic bags and the poem that goes in the pocket needs to be copied and folded. I have instructions typed up and try to have packets to complete to hand out if you are willing to make them.

Contact Anna Grimes if you have any questions at (301) 788-7174
