As always, Ladies’ Nights are open to the public, and men are welcome too! Cheverly's American Legion Auxiliary Unit 108 (ALA) Unit 108 is hosting Third Friday Ladies Nights at the American Legion Dugout (the downstairs bar)!! The Dugout is a members-only bar (and an awesome benefit of joining the Legion family!!), but the Cheverly Auxiliary is inviting the ladies of Cheverly to be our guests every third Friday of the month to learn more about the Auxiliary and as an opportunity to get together and have fun!
Of course men are welcome on third Fridays, too, but we are especially welcoming and inviting the women of Cheverly to come out to the Dugout for some drinks, snacks, and conversation on those nights. So gather up your friends and meet us at the Dugout on the 3rd Friday, around 7:30pm.
I am related to someone who served on active duty during one of the membership eligibility dates. Can I join the American Legion Auxiliary?
If your relative who served on active duty during one of the membership eligibility dates and is a member of The American Legion, you may join the American Legion Auxiliary of The American Legion. However, if the qualifying Veteran is deceased you may join the appropriate organization (ALA or SAL), even if the qualifying Veteran was not a member of The American Legion when living.
What happens after I turn in my membership application?
The application will be processed by our Membership Committee. At the next General Membership Meeting, your application will be voted on. We would love for you to attend that meeting, so that we can welcome you to our family. Feel free to browse through our New Member Handbook.
How often does the Auxiliary meet and where?
We meet on the first Monday of each month at 7:30pm at the Cheverly American Legion. We do our best to keep the meetings no longer than 1 hour.
ALA Girls State
Auxiliary units in 49 states proudly host American Legion Auxiliary Girls State, an amazing week of learning focused on responsible citizenship and love for God and country. Students are assigned to mock cities where, divided into the “Federalist Party” and “Nationalist Party,” they are immersed into learning about the political process from dedicated volunteers, making sure the program’s nonpartisan governmental, patriotic and civic objectives are carried out with intense learning along with some fun. The program directors also stay vigilant about raising the girls’ awareness of the importance of service, particularly to our veterans, the military and their families.

ALA Girls Nation
Two girls are selected from each American Legion Auxiliary Girls State program to attend American Legion Auxiliary Girls Nation, where they become “senators” who meet for weeklong immersive learning in Washington, D.C. After running for office, electing a mock U.S. Girls Nation President, and campaigning for the passage of mock legislation, the participants meet with real-life national government leaders.
The highlight of the week includes a visit to the White House where for most years, the American Legion Auxiliary Girls Nation senators have visited with the President of the United States. Learn more about ALA Girls Nation
