The American Legion was chartered and incorporated by Congress in 1919 as a patriotic veterans organization devoted to mutual helpfulness. It is the nation’s largest wartime veterans service organization, committed to mentoring youth and sponsorship of wholesome programs in our communities, advocating patriotism and honor, promoting strong national security, and continued devotion to our fellow servicemembers and veterans.
The Toddville American Legion Post 674 has been involved in the Toddville and Alburnett communities since it was chartered in 1945. We continue to serve the community in many ways. The Legion Hall is home to the Otter Creek Lions Club and Cub Scout Pack 504. Legion members participate in the Alburnett High School Veteran’s Day Recognition assembly by providing a color guard, coordinate the three Memorial Day ceremonies that take place every year, and sponsor the Alburnett American Legion Baseball team.
The American Legion provides final honors for Veterans and their families.
To honor all Veterans, Post 674 and the local Scouts place flags at Veterans' graves in local cemeteries. On Memorial Day we conduct ceremonies at the Midway road bridge, Lafayette Cemetery, and Dunkard Cemetery.
On Veteran's Day, the Legion provides a color guard service for the Alburnett Community School Veteran's Day assembly, giving the event the honor and distinction it deserves.
