American Legion Post 108 has been part of the Franklin community for 92 years, having received its charter in July of 1922. The Legion’s contributions to the community have been many as we’ll try to point out below.
Post 108 is a member of the Franklin Chamber of Commerce and has won local organization of the year in the past. Our Post is a member of “Adopt A Highway” and cleans a one-mile strip of Highway 441 four times a year.
We have been partnered with the Shriners since 1985 and have donated more than $20,000 to the Shriners Children Hospital. We work with the local Sheriff and Police Department to buy cameras, furniture and have helped with the K-9 unit. Every year the Post gives $500 toward the Shop with a Cop program.
