Youth groups go above and beyond for American Legion

There are three separate groups who have been of immeasurable help to the American Legion Post 130 in Grass Valley. They make our monetary donations to each very reasonable. All three show advanced character and great work ethics.

Boy Scout Troop 855 and The Citizen Project/Nevada County 4-H have helped us for years. Always ready to “step up and stand out.” Always pleasantly completing their tasks. The scouts set up for our events, especially Memorial and Veterans days. Two or three are always at our monthly dinners, helping to make them successful.

The Citizen Project/Nevada County 4-H is always at our events, helping to put our audience at ease. They greet and meet, handing out programs, assisting people to their seats. If coffee or water are asked for, they deliver. They stay and help pick up with an ease of a job well done.

The Friendship Club is new to us. This is their second year. Their mission is to engage, educate and empower girls at risk. They do most of our waitressing at our monthly served dinners. The members who have been serving for years are very thankful for their help. To all of these groups, you have performed very, very well, and all the Legion and Legion Auxiliary members give you a most hearty heads up and thank you. We appreciate all the adult leaders who give their time and great effort working with these groups.
