Frederick Dempsey Post 266

President's Comments

In the Spirit of Service

The American Legion Auxiliary Frederick Dempsey Unit 266 was formed on April 5, 1924. In the spirit of service, not self, the mission of the American Legion Auxiliary is to support The American Legion and to honor the sacrifice of those who serve by enhancing the lives of our veterans, military and their families, both at home and abroad. For God and Country, we advocate for veterans, educate our citizens, mentor youth, and promote patriotism, good citizenship, peace, and security.

While originally organized to assist The American Legion, the Auxiliary has achieved its own unique identity while working side-by-side with the veterans who belong to The American Legion. Like the Legion, the Auxiliary’s interests have broadened to encompass the entire community.

The American Legion Auxiliary is made up of male and female spouses, mothers, grandmothers, sisters, and direct and adopted female descendants of members of The American Legion. Frederick Dempsey Unit 266 currently has fifty-six members and gladly looks for new members who meet the qualifications. For additional information contact membership Chairperson, Roseanne Roberson at

Our unit meets at the Post on the 1st Wednesday of the month at 7:00 p.m. In addition to monthly meetings, we sponsor a school backpack give away, Halloween trunk or treat, children’s Christmas party, several dances, raffles, student scholarship awards, and attendees to Girl’s State. We also assist the Post with Veteran’s Day and Memorial Day Programs.

Our current officers are:

Beverly J. Holland, President

Roseanne Roberson, 1st Vice - Joyce A. Bradley, 2nd Vice

MaryAnn Smith, Secretary - Kim Smith, Treasurer

Carolyn Lundy, Chaplin - Annette Barksdale, Historian - Joan Sunnerville, Sgt-At-Arms



For God and Country,


Beverly J. Holland, President
