Mayor Randy White has named American Legion Family Post 408 as the recipient of the 2022 Mayor’s Award of Excellence. The award was established in 2002 as a way to honor an individual, family, organization, or business that has contributed significantly to the Derby community. The award will be presented to the Legion members at the Jan. 25 City Council meeting at 6:30 p.m. at Derby City Hall, 611 Mulberry Road.
“We are grateful to have a strong American Legion presence in Derby,” said Mayor Randy White. “Our close relationship with the American Legion is invaluable as is their volunteerism and support of the Derby community. We appreciate all they do.”
The American Legion Family Post 408 has had a presence in Derby since 1990, when it was chartered with approximately 267 members. Here are some examples of the American Legion members’ community service projects over the years:
The American Legion was chartered and incorporated by Congress in 1919 as a patriotic veterans organization devoted to mutual helpfulness. It is the nation’s largest wartime veterans service organization, committed to mentoring youth and sponsorship of wholesome programs in our communities, advocating patriotism and honor, promoting strong national security, and continued devotion to our fellow service members and veterans.
American Legion Family Post 408 consists of four groups.
