American Legion Service to Veterans - Are You a Member?


Press Release/Flyers

Donate your vehicle to American Legion / Leyden-Chiles-Wickersham Post 1  - If you need help completing the donation form (link above), or you have questions about the vehicle donation process, call 1.866.628.2277 and we will arrange your donation.



As we look forward to our Military Appreciation Day next summer, we are asking for the support of our membership in each organization to contribute, in order to place advertising in the Aurora Sentinel and Buckley Guardian.  This advertising for two consecutive weeks in both papers will be pricey, but we feel it to be the most effective saturated method with 34,000 publications in the area.

 We ask for your support in this effort with three levels of donations:

            $25 to $49 – Bronze Star contribution

            $50 to $99 – Silver Star contribution

            $100 and above – Gold Star contribution

 Please indicate if we may use your name as a contributor for publication in THE REVEILLE at the time of contribution and we ask that you make sure that any donations be designated for advertising for the Military Appreciation Day event.

We will honor your request if you wish to remain anonymous, but would like to recognize those supporters of this event to promote new membership.

 Your help in any capacity for this event would be greatly appreciated.  Watch for future news and plans regarding the August 1, 2015 event.  Your contribution is SO important to the success of this as we honor our real heroes.

 A planning meeting for this event is scheduled on Tuesday, January 6, 2015 at 6:30 pm at the Post.  We welcome participation and ideas from all.  If you have any questions, please call Karen Taylor at 303-680-6078 or 303-551-4868.
