Sergeant At Arms
Our Auxiliary membership is made up of 145 members who are the spouses, mothers, daughters, sisters, grandmothers, and adopted daughters of Veterans.
We hold our membership meetings on the second Monday of every month at 10:30AM at Post 166.
We are a community of Volunteers serving Veterans, Military and their Families. We support our Post, our Veterans, and our community with activities throughout the year that include:
May is Poppy Month
The red poppy is a nationally recognized symbol of sacrifice worn by Americans since World War I to honor those who served and died for our country in all wars. All donations received from the sales are used for programs that support veterans in need, and their families. Donations for Poppies may be made at the Post, Walden Woods (various times) and most shops in our Plaza.
We collect clothing for men, women, and children, bedding items, back packs, blankets and towels for Day Star. The staff at Day Star identifies the Citrus County homeless Veterans when they come for assistance. They are then given a voucher that allows them to select clothing and bedding items at no cost to them.
This program provides a unique and coveted educational opportunity for young women to receive citizenship training through a weeklong hands-on program involving a mock city, county and state government. Girls completing their junior year in high school are nominated in December to attend during the summer before their Senior year. The unit pays a fee to American Legion Auxiliary Department of Florida for them to attend and they provide a small stipend in spending money. The Girls State program takes place at Florida State University in Tallahassee.
