POST 151



Post 151 has supported Boy Scouts of America from the earliest days of the post charter in 1967. In recent years, Post 151 has made donations to Glacier's Edge Council, which benefit Scouts in Dane County.  American Legion support for the Boy Scout movement started at The American Legion's first National Convention in 1919. Today, there are more than 2,500 Boy Scout units sponsored by Legion Posts throughout the country. Supporting Boy Scout activities is natural for Legionnaires, who bring their service-learned skills and experiences as veterans to bear to help build character and positive traits in "Young America." Few other Post activities generate more goodwill from the community.

Each year, scouts and adult leaders from local Troop 122, Troop 104 and Troop 628 volunteer their time, alongside members of Post 151, in May to place small flags at veteran graves and large U.S. flags at Sunset Memory Gardens in preparation for Memorial Day.
