Welcome to our website of the Northwest DuPage American Legion Post 1084.
This web site is a valuable source of Post 1084 information for our members, as well as a welcoming invitation to non-members looking that may be interested in joining our family. If you have an interest in any type of veteran's activities, an interest in helping the community, camaraderie with people, social activities, and the like, have we got the place for you! Please look at the links on this home page for a listing of the major groups and activities that Post 1084 supports. This is just a starter list; there are many additional activities and events that take place throughout the year.
Post 1084 is a very active veteran's organization that includes strong Women's Auxiliary, Sons of the American Legion, American Legion Riders and Shooting Sports clubs. All of the clubs are active along with the post members in support of veterans and the community.
We support our hospitalized veterans by hosting events at both North Chicago and Hines veterans hospitals, including a summer picnic and a prime rib luncheon at North Chicago, a Thanksgiving dinner, sponsored by the Elks Club of Elmhurst, for veterans from Hines at our post and visits to support and provide companionship to the veterans in extended care facilities throughout the area.
In addition to the things we do for veterans in need, the Post provides fellowship and comradeship to our members. We strive to provide a hospitable and welcoming atmosphere for all visitors. Please visit us at our home, 344 East Maple Avenue, Roselle, Illinois 60172.
Our Post has continually been one of the leading posts in raising money for the Illinois Legion's "Gifts to the Yanks who Gave" (GTTY) program, which provides Christmas gifts to veterans in hospitals and nursing homes. We support this by hosting events such as poker runs and golf outings, as well as soliciting donations leading up to Veterans Day in November.
Post 1084 was founded in Roselle in 1946 and has been doing great things ever since. We have always been fortunate in having caring, active, dedicated members capable of doing all sorts of tasks for the betterment of veterans and the community. With the help of present members and future members who may be joining this distinguished Post, we WILL continue this strong tradition.
I could continue to brag about the things we do, but you get the message. American Legion Post 1084 does a lot and we do it with excellence.
