What We Do
TELEVISION COVERAGE this year: Tuesday, November 11, 2014, was the Legion's Veterans Day ceremony. Ch. 12, WBNG's Kerry Longobucco came to film it, complete with interviews, too. http://www.wbng.com/…/Honoring-military-members-and-their-f…

TELEVISION COVERAGE last year: Monday, May 27th, 2013, was the Legion's Memorial Day Parade and Ceremony. (Read more on the fundraising page under Events.) It was filmed by Channel 12 Action news. It's modest, but be sure to see it here! They have a few photos too.

Auxiliary Unit 376 marching in the Memorial Day parade 2013.The ALA focuses on three major areas: Veterans, Young People, Americanism and the community. On the local level, the Oxford ALA has over 200 members, giving many volunteer hours to help the initiatives and programs of the Oxford Legion and the Oxford community.

Oxford Auxiliary members have achieved their own unique identity while working side-by-side with the Legionnaires and the Sons of the American Legion (SAL's), of Fort Hill Post #376. They have the honor of marching in the Memorial Day parade but they do a lot more!

The ALA is involved in youth activities such as the Oratorical Contest and Girls' State. Some members volunteer at the NYS Veterans' Home, nursing homes, food and clothing banks, and they organize fundraisers like Bake Sales and Soup Sales, Memorial Poppy sales, and the Oxtoberfest. They have even established an American Legion Auxiliary Scholarship. They're involved in other community projects such as promoting child literacy*; education; charities; and more. It is all accomplished with volunteers!

*Each fall Unit 376 sponsors a Harvest Dinner to raise money for the Finch Memorial Book and Education Fund which donates books to the Oxford Academy Primary School.

The Great Garage Sale Day & Bake Sale, has been canceled. Thank you to everyone for all your hard work.
