Join us for a Meeting! 

Since 1919, the American Legion Auxiliary has been serving, helping, and meeting the needs of our nation’s veterans, military, and their families—both here and abroad. 

Volunteers are needed to go out and collect for our brave active duty service members, veterans and their families.


2 hour shifts begin at 6am with the last shift going out at 12pm and ending at 2pm.  Many locations available for every ability!  Traffic Intersections or Retail locations... sitting, standing or running - you chose!


Make it a friends "outing" -or- a team building experience for your employer/employees and compete to see who can collect the most! Get a team together (4-6 people) and I can find a spot where you can all work together and 'compete' to see who can raise the most $$ in two hours!!

  Please contact Bethanne Lode to join in this great endeavor!  

Leave a phone message at 708/429-6447 -or- send an email: !!

In Flanders Fields

In Flanders Fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses row on row. 

That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.

We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved, and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields.

Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields.
