American Legion LeRoy Hill Post 19
American Legion LeRoy Hill Post 19 is located in Gardner, KS. Our post is made up of our family of Legionnaires, Auxiliary, Sons of the American Legion and the American Legion Riders. We have 5 employees and 500 members.
The Post runs a bar and we also organize, fund and facilitate many fundraisers and community events throughout the year like…
Blood drives, Painting Parties, Shuffleboard Tournament, Mouse Races, Community Easter Egg Hunt, Helmet Block, Memorial Day Breakfast, Color Guards, Parades, Honor Flight, Santa Shop, Mountain Oyster Feed, along with facilitating fund raisers for Veterans in need and those in the community who are facing adversity in their lives. We're also a local polling station for elections.
We order our own supplies, we pay our vendors, we file our taxes, we run our club bar, we cook, we clean, if something breaks – we fix it. We've renovated two thirds of our buildings in the past 4 years. We band together to do what needs to be done so our building and it’s operations are never hindering our efforts to serve those who have served for us.
We have learned leadership, teamwork, accounting, tax filing, licensing, inspections, organizing and coordinating volunteers and events, cooperation, conflict resolution, and marketing.
We work together, we’ve served together, we’ve supported those who have served together, and we will continue to learn, innovate and perpetuate our cause and support our community, children’s causes, and our Veterans
