From humble beginnings in 1919, women of the American Legion Thomas J. Hogan Unit 109 Auxiliary, Natoma, continue the 100-year legacy in serving veterans, active military, their families, children, youth and community.

In the past two years, they have re-imagined the Legion Hall, a former WWII Army Air Corp barrack for B-29 pilots. The American Legion Hall Restoration Phase II will include a modern kitchen for the hundreds of meals the members provide, and in celebrations throughout the year.

Members live near and far, yet, all continue their support throughout the year.

A recent donation was received from Wanda Meyer, former auxiliary president, in honor of her husband Richard, former Post Commander.

The Auxiliary's recent agenda included Fall and Winter projects, Veterans Day Salute, Star Spangled Kids, and Christmas support for residents in the Ft. Dodge Soldiers Home.
