Unit 109 Auxiliary

American Legion Post 109 Auxiliary

Auxiliary Membership          

We meet on the 2nd Tuesday of each month (except July and August).  The meeting begins in the Dewey Lowman Post 109 Hall at 7:30 p.m.

The Auxiliary has conceived and implemented hundreds of programs for veterans, their families, young people and the community at large. Dewey Lowman Auxiliary Unit 109 is no exception. Currently, the Dewey Lowman Auxiliary sponsors these projects:

– Annually sponsors up to two young women to attend Girls State where she will learn about government and democracy

-Participates in the Americanism Essay Contest for 3rd – 8th-grade students.

-Gives one $1000 scholarships yearly for post-high school education

-We are an approved partner in the United State Vietnam War Commemoration Program.  As a partner, we “welcome home” Vietnam Veterans, and thank them and their families for their service.

-Collects travel size toiletries for the use of returning service people at the BWI USO center

-Makes visits to the local veterans hospitals

-Assists the Post in fundraising events and ceremonies

-Shares committee chairmanships with Post members for the betterment of the Post

Through its nearly 12,000 Units located in every state and some foreign countries, the Auxiliary embodies the spirit of Americans that has prevailed through war and peace. Dewey Lowman Auxiliary Unit 109 is proud to be part of that organization. We have achieved our own unique identity while working side-by-side with the veterans who belong to the American Legion. It is as solidly behind America today as it was when it was founded almost a hundred years ago.
