About The American Legion
The American Legion was chartered and incorporated by Congress in 1919 as a patriotic veterans organization devoted to mutual helpfulness. It is the nation’s largest veterans service organization, committed to mentoring and sponsorship of youth programs in our communities, advocating patriotism and honor, promoting a strong national security, and continued devotion to our fellow service members and veterans.
In contrast to other veterans organizations, the Legion offers a number of local programs and activities to strengthen its commitment to our nation’s grass roots and the people we serve. American Legion Baseball is one of the nation’s most successful amateur athletic programs; it continues to educate youths on the importance of sportsmanship and develops the quality of our country’s citizenship. The Heroes to Hometowns program is the only nationwide reintegration assistance service for wounded veterans from Iraq and Afghanistan. Additionally, millions of dollars in donations have been given to fellow veterans and their families in times of grief, and various scholarship opportunities ensure the future success of our youth.
The American Legion is a nonpartisan, not-for-profit organization with great political influence perpetuated by its grass-roots involvements in the legislation process. Legionnaires’ sense of obligation to their community, state and nation drives an honest advocacy for veterans in Washington. The Legion stands not behind politics, but the issues and people that institute progress by focusing on veterans rights and quality of life.The American Legion’s success depends entirely on active membership, participation and volunteerism. The organization belongs to the people it serves and the communities in which it thrives.
Ship, Captain, and Crew
Begining May 4th, there will be a new Ship, Captain, and Crew at 6pm each evening except on Sundays. How the game is played: This is a dice game using 5 dice. Each player anti's up $1.00 for the pot. The first three rolls, the players must get a six, five and a four in that order. The next two rolls are for best score. If the score is tied, each player that wants to stay in the game must anti up another $1.00 to stay in the game. Continous ties then means the pot grows by round of play. If a player throws two sixes (box cars), the rest of the players get the opportunity to match the box cars. The player who that rolls box cars wins the pot. If two or more players tie with the box cars then a roll off is played to determine the best score to win the pot. If tied scores on the playoff occur, each player must anti up $1.00 until the pot is won by the best score.
Due to limited attendence on Saturdays, Joker Poker will be moved to Tuesdays at 6:45 pm.
