American Legion Post 133 Auxiliary
On October 18, 2014 The American Legion Post 133 Women's
Auxiliary conducted a flag retirement ceremony with Girl Scout
Troop 719 and Troop 1513. Norma Wyatt President of the
Auxiliary led the program to teach the Girl Scouts the proper and
respectful way to retire a flag.
The Girl Scout Pledge along with Pledge of Allegiance was
given by the Scouts.
American Legion Post 133 Commander Christopher Flores
supervised the flag burning portion of the ceremony in which all
Girl Scouts were able to participate.
The Flag Ceremony was concluded with the eating of smores.
Fun was had by all participants.
Above are pictures taken at the Second Annual Sandwiches for the Homeless event.
This event was for making food for the homeless and was conducted at the Vet Center
on February 28, 2015. Members from the community showed up to help make over 500
sandwiches which were given out the next day in Phoenix to homeless people.
Mayor Price showed up to work along side Miss Teen Maricopa Cristaly Bentancourt and
members of the American Legion, Legion Auxiliary, and city youth groups.
Food was donated by Bashas, Walmart, and Mountain View Community Church Food
Bank along with various members of the Maricopa Community.
Our thanks go out to everyone that helped make this event a hugh success, especially to
Auxiliary member Michelle Buchanan.
Is making sandwiches fun or what?
On February 12, 2016 the our Post donated $250.00 to Leading Edge Academy to support the ongoing training and supplies needed to teach the students
how to honor and respect the American flag and the proper way to display it.
Auxiliary President Gaby Potter initiated this program with Leading Edge Principal Reese to teach students about honoring Veterans and the proper way to
display and care the American flag. (The first part of this program was in November. Click on Veterans tribute below to see event.)
The old flag pole from the Veterans Center was donated and installed by VFW members.
