American Legion Post 1247 members are READY TO SERVE YOU!

DYK – Vernon Hills has its own American Legion Post? Post 1247 consists of your friends, family, and neighbors from throughout the Vernon Hills area. The mission of the American Legion is to support and advocate for veterans, active military, and their families -- and to support initiatives and programs benefiting the community.

Each year, American Legion Post 1247 members lead the Vernon Hills July 4 Parade, often present the colors at VHHS events, and will be participating in Fall Fest – 2019, September 28-29. Many veterans will be working in the beer tent, in which proceeds will be donated to the Midwest Veteran’s Closet. On Saturday, September 14, American Legion members will be participating in the Hero’s Golf Outing and hosting a dinner ‘meet and greet’ at the Vernon Hills Muni-Golf Course. The Muni, located at 291 Evergreen Drive is where Post 1247 members assemble, and you are invited to visit and celebrate service & community with your friends and neighbors. “Of the Community, for the Community.”
