The American Legion Post 1231, located in Lake in the Hills, serves both Lake in the Hills and Algonquin, making it the largest post in the McHenry County area. This post was created when the Algonquin post dissolved. Now, the Lake in the Hills post now takes care of both communities. Likewise, both posts receive Legion benefits under the same name. These two posts support one another through both good and bad times whether it be fundraisers, funerals, or celebrations.
The American Legion Post 1231 is built on four main pillars: Americanism, Service to Veterans, Strong National Defense, and Care and Education of Children. These four pillars are implemented throughout more than fifty locations. The American Legion is America’s largest association for veterans and their families. The American Legion Post 1231 is active in both the Lake in the Hills and Algonquin communities. The Post sponsors different youth teams and scout tribes, and they even have their own baseball team. They also participate in local events like parades, festivals, and bike runs.
When veterans join the American Legion Post 1231, they’re gaining many benefits they wouldn’t find in anywhere else. Members gain a large second family, a sense of belonging among their fellow veterans, community involvement, membership at the Legion Post Bar, reduced rates for the newly renovated banquet hall, and much more. This post provides many programs that are beneficial to all veterans.
The Legion Bar at The American Legion Post 1231 not only offers great prices, they also have four video gaming machines for their members and guests.
