QUESTION!
What is the Legacy Scholarship Fund?
ANSWER: The Legacy Scholarship Fund is a very special fund that was created by The American Legion Riders. These motorcycle riders get together by the hundreds and ride from town to town across the United States, raising money to help pay for the college education of children who lost a parent while protecting our freedom. Many children have grown up without the benefit of both parents for this reason, thus making life difficult for them in many ways. They should never have to worry about how to pay for their education too. Enough. The American Legion Riders are known for their philosophy that, "We take care of our own."

We thank The American Legion Riders for your help and service to these exceptional kids! May God bless you and may God bless America. For more information about the Riders and what they do, please go to: www.legion.org/riders

Thank you for serving.
The members at Greendale Post 416 would like to congratulate our sponsored participant, Jacob Malinowski from Greendale, for being elected Governor of Boys State. Jacob is going on to join the distinguished members of Boys Nation, which involves all of the states at the National level. A former high school participant that was elected Governor of Boys State was Scott Walker, now Governor Walker of the great State of Wisconsin. We would like to especially recognize Jacob for this same great accomplishment at Boys State.

The American Legion prides itself in sponsoring high school boys who aspire to lead our country in some way. The Legion's goal is to help them by gaining real-life experience. If you think this program is small, guess again! Check out these pictures.

What is the American Legion Auxiliary?
In this world of ours, the American Legion Auxiliary shines as an example of unselfish giving. With almost a million members from all walks of life, the Auxiliary administers hundreds of volunteer programs, gives tens of thousands of hours to its communities and to veterans, and raises millions of dollars to support its own programs as well as other worthwhile charities familiar to most Americans. It is all accomplished with volunteers.

Mission:

• To support The American Legion programs for veterans, young people,
   and community
• To provide for today's needs while being advocates for a brighter future
• To advance the understanding of patriotism and responsibility of 
   citizenship
• To promote individual integrity and family values
• To ensure as volunteers, that Auxiliary members continue to be the leaders
   in all that is good in this nation today, tomorrow and for generations to 
   come through serving others first and not self

Goals:

1. Attract and retain professional, well-trained staff and leadership at a
    sufficient level to support our mission.
2. Have a knowledgeable, vibrant and engaged membership.
3. Have a diverse income stream to support our mission.
4. Effect a positive image of the ALA and its members.
5. Continually foster a positive relationship within The American Legion
    family.
6. Attract and retain a membership base of women from a variety of 
    communities and eligible groups.


CONGRATULATIONS!

Announcements
We regret to inform you that the Sausage Fest Celebration held on South Kinnickinnic Ave in Bay View, Wisconsin has been cancelled for this year. Café Centraal informed us that they cancelled the event due to lack of sponsor support plus they are short on time to make this event happen. They are hoping to bring it back next year. Sausage Fest is known for being a fun place to be and has attracted quite a crowd in past years. The city closes off the street from all east/west traffic and the area becomes one big block party with all kinds of activities, great food, and drinks. We give Café Centraal our understanding and regards and hope to see this fun summertime event return. Thank you for everything you do not only for us, but your friends, your neighbors, and the entire community. We remain your loyal attendees.
Time to relax...
Enjoy...
