Membership

We currently have a healthy membership reaching almost 1,000 in 2010. Our Legion is a community within itself. We offer great opportunities for socializing.

The membership process is very easy. We ask that you come in and fill out an application. You can do this either in the office or right in the Lounge. Once you have filled out the application we pass it on to our membership Chairman and they set up an interview. During your interview our Membership Committee will tell you about our Organization and ask about the things in our Organization that interest you. During your interview the Committee will let you know what the next steps are to becoming a member.
