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 servicemembers and veterans.
Life is filled with joys and sorrows, good times and bad. We are much more than a community, we are a family. In each life a rough patch is bound to happen; By coming together and standing by each other we can navigate through any rough road. It is for this reason the “Angels Without Faces” foundation was formed.
“Angels Without Faces” provides emergency financial assistance to families and individuals who have experienced hardships. Funds are raised through various activities including golf outings, dinners, dances and other community events which focus not only on financing but also to increase awareness and remind all of us all that we are one community.

This idea of having a community museum all began with a gathering of some high school students, a teacher, and two towns’ people. The only school managed community museum in the United States is the end result after 20 years.
Developed, maintained, and cultivated for educational purposes, the Kings Park Heritage Museum’s mission is to preserve the town’s history and educate the public about it. Though under the authority and supervision of the District Office, the museum has maintained independence by soliciting no funds or work from the school district. There are several plaques that attest to those who have been continually active in providing the resources – money, time, and energy to create a community landmark.
These individuals saved this town’s history and heritage and planted deep roots to strengthen the future. For every person inscribed there are 4 – 5 times as many associates who have provided numerous helping hands moments. The museum has become an educational path denoting how we arrived at what we are today. May this path always indicate nothing but the best.
