Ladies' Nights (Third Friday of the Month)

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.

Auxiliary FAQs

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. 

Girls State & Nation

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. Learn more about ALA Girls State 


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
