Happy New Year from American Legion Post 111
2018 was a great year for our Post. We’ve seen unprecedented numbers of new members and new transfers. We worked hard and we played hard. But, with the New Year fast upon us, we have much more to do. While 2018 was a great year, 2019 can be even better. Come on out and enjoy some camaraderie and fellowship with your fellow veterans, and bring a friend. Join us as we work to make 2019 even better.

What is Americanism
One of American Legion Post 111’s primary goals is to teach Americanism to the young Americans in the Conway SC area. As such we promote youth programs such as American Legion baseball, Palmetto Boys State, an annual Oratorical Competition, and the Nathan Wolf Law Cadet Academy.
Americanism is the essential combination of Freedom, Justice, Individual Rights, and Responsibilities that define us and what we stand for. Americanism is also Pride in Country, expressed without reservation, and the duty Legionnaires have in imparting patriotic values to new generations.
