A new website for American Legion Jack Henry Post 1 has been needed for sometime, we are happy that day is finally here. We will be working over the winter to build out this website to help inform members, gain new members, and reach out to our community.
This site will be used to post our monthly calendar, a way for people to contact us, promote our donation based merchandise, provide an easy way for people to join or inquire about the post and a myriad of other tools
Thanks for reading and make sure to bookmark us.
The America Legion, Jack Henry Unit 1 will be hosting the 60th Silver Tea, November 3, 2018 from 1:00 p.m until 4:00 p.m. This is the Auxiliary’s largest fundraiser for the support of the veteran community.
President Anne Foley chose this year’s theme as “Christmas with the Troops”. We will have photos of Christmas celebrated from WWI through the Gulf War/War on Terrorism. Each decorated table will follow the same theme. The Auxiliary members out do themselves with free delicious finger food and delicious tea and coffee served in beautiful china tea cups. Adult beverages are also available to members in the canteen. This event will have a silent auction.
We are proud to once again be a major sponsor of the Wounded Hero’s Event, which uses the natural ambience of the awe inspiring Kenai River to help heal our wounded hero’s.
We want to thank Bass Pro Shops in Anchorage for helping make this event happen, and the Kenai River Foundation for putting the event on.
We love to help active duty service members, it’s our mission. When Armed Services YMCA asked us to partner with them to send care packages to deployed service members from Alaska as part of Operation Frosty Warrior, we were all about it. Commander Art Bell and First Vice Mark Berg organized donations and filled 110 boxes with necessities and goodies from Alaska and ASYMCA shipped them off. We are thankful for ASYMCA, as they sent over 3500 hundred packages with the help of many other partners.
The best part for us was to see photos of smiling faces holding up notes that we sent in our care packages. We do not know where these service members are deployed but we hope that they know that the 520 American Legion members from Alaska Post 1 are thankful for their service and appreciate their sacerfices.
