American Legion, Ira Weaver Post 121, Blairsville, GA. We are an enthusiastic Post participating in District 9 of the Department of Georgia.
We have much to offer new and prospective members of the Legion Family. In addition to regular American Legion membership we offer memberships in the American Legion Auxiliary, Sons of the American Legion, and the Legion Riders. Regular American Legion Members are eligible for membership in the North Georgia Honor Guard which is very active in the Blairsville Area. Each organization has its own membership criteria and qualifying dual memberships are always welcome and encouraged.
Post 121 is a firm believer in “Veterans still serving America” and helping other Veterans. We have our own post Scholarship program. We participate in many local festivals and parades and we have a visitation program for Veterans residing in local nursing homes and rehabilitation centers. We have a schedule of regular visitation to the local VA Medical Center to provide fellowship, encouragement and refreshments for the visiting outpatient Veterans. We also support the Missing In America Project and have several members serving in the North Georgia Honor Guard.
The post hosts social events throughout the year including a Veterans Day Celebration and Lunch, golf tournament, Christmas Party and informal cookouts. The membership and officers are always receptive to new ideas to build membership and serve our Veterans and foster the spirit of comradery and community.
If you are a Veteran interested in joining the American Legion Family, just visiting or a returning member we are pleased to have you here.
Our regular scheduled meetings are the third Tuesday of each month 6:15, with fellowship at 5:15.
The entire American Legion Family of Post 121 welcomes you.
