2013 Ladies Auxiliary VFW 123_edited.jpg


The VFW Auxiliary is a woman's group that supports the Lemont Post.

Since 1914, the VFW Auxiliary has united Americans from all walks of life with a common purpose: to improve the lives of veterans, active-duty service members and their families, and our communities.
Our programs are designed to bring needed services, information and assistance to these target groups. Take a tour through our programs and learn how you can join us to make a difference in the lives of veterans, active-duty service members and their families.
Monthly meetings take place on the second Monday of the month at 7:00 p.m. at the Post Hall.

We are always looking for new members.  Members of the woman's auxiliary need not be veterans themselves.  All woman willing to support are welcome.

Some of the work we do and the charities we work with include:

  • Send Care Packages for Active Duty Personnel

  • Hines Disabled Vets Support

  • Midway Honor Flight

  • VFW Community Special Projects
