American Legion Auxiliary

Representatives of the American Legion Auxiliary, Robert H. Burns Unit 16, were distributing informational pamphlets at the Covington Block Party & Car Show Friday night. The auxiliary has played a large part in encouraging freedom education and instruction in governmental structure and processes through its Girls State and Girls Nation programs.

The American Legion and American Legion Auxiliary have been active for decades across St. Tammany Parish, holding special ceremonies at the courthouse for Memorial Day and Veterans Day, providing services to veterans, and taking part in a variety of community events to promote patriotism.
