A long-standing tradition of service since 1920...
The American Legion is many things to many people. For veterans, it is a place to gather in the camaraderie of shared experience. For members of the Auxiliary and Sons of the American Legion, it is a place to show gratitude for the service and sacrifice of our soldiers and their families. For non-profit organizations, it is a meeting place and source of financial support. For youth organizations, it is a place for service opportunities and a source of funding. For community members, it is a place to meet family and friends, old and new.
The Membership of William R. Witty American Legion Post 37 has voted to accept the generous gift of the old Whiskey River property from Nicollet County Bank.
We are more than humbled and extend our heartfelt gratitude at the generosity of Nicollet County Bank and for considering the William R. Witty American Legion as a worthy recipient of this gift. We have always valued, and will continue to value, our community partnership with Nicollet County Bank and the support they provide to our local veterans and veterans service organizations.
