Hawaiian Luau with American Legion Auxiliary

What is the American Legion Auxiliary? Frank Gallino Unit 130 was chartered in 1928 and as part of the National American Legion Auxiliary is celebrating 90 years of “Service not Self for Veterans, God and Country.”

The 2010 theme of the Department of California (the state organization) is “The Tropics” and has inspired this “tropical island” to celebrate with a luau. Unit 130 is a member of the state organization of the American Legion Auxiliary.

For 82 years, Frank Gallino Unit 130 has supported veterans, youth, residents of our community and those serving our country in all branches of the military.

Citizenship, respect for the flag, and service to the community are taught through Americanism, community service, education and girls state programs.

Service to veterans in our community and veterans’ homes and hospitals and those serving in the military is accomplished through Veterans Affairs and Rehabilitation, Poppy and National Security Programs.

Auxiliary members contribute hundreds of hours in support of these programs and in fundraising to make them possible.

The luau will feature a no host bar, raffle prizes and live entertainment by “Cool Hand Uke” Dan Scanlan. A Hawaiian luau dinner will be served at 6 p.m. The menu will include Kalua pork, confetti rice, coleslaw, fresh fruit, Hawaiian rolls and pineapple upside-down cake.
