POST HISTORY(continued)

Affiliated Organizations

A Women's Auxiliary of Chandler Post 35 was formed. The Legion has every reason to be proud of its Auxiliary, which gained statewide recognition because of its programs of service. Auxiliary members are always anxious and willing to cooperate in every Legion activity.

PATRIOTIC DAYS

Patriot's Day (Setember 11)

MEMORIAL DAY has always been an outstanding occasion in this community. In addition to memorial events throughout the Batavia the grave of every veteran of any of the wars of the country are decorated on this National Holiday. Today, jointly with Batavia's Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 1197 this tradition is being carried on. If one might attempt to prophecy, in an historical account, Batavia's veteran organizations will carry on this tradition to its last man to keep MEMORIAL DAY sacred to the memory of our war dead.

ARMISTICE DAY, now called VETERANS' DAY, originally marked the end of fighting in World War One. It is an important holiday on the calendar of Legionnaires everywhere and in the hearts of all veterans. Today, together with the Valley of the Sun Cemetary,  Chandler Post 35 solemnly observes this tradition with other Chandler Veteran organizations.

REGISTRATION OF GRAVES

Partnering with the Valley of Sun Cemetary the Post erected a massive memorial marking it as the burial lot for service men . Each year, together with the VFW, active members of both organizations and the Valley of the sun place a flag on each veteran's grave.
