If you have a special family member birthday that you would like to celebrate, the Post should be on your list of desirable venues. Other activities might be weddings, anniversaries, graduations or any reason to give a dinner or maybe present a special speaker to an invited assembly.

Membership in Post 180 of The American Legion certainly has its benefits. You will find that the cost of sponsorship of a personal event for a member can even be zero (0) dollars. That is a price that you will be hard pressed to beat! If you are not presently a member of Post 180, but are a veteran, it could be worthwhile to check your eligibility for membership.
