American Legion Post 403

Established in 2013. The members of American Legion Post 403 desired a facility that could help fulfill their mission of supporting our veterans, our country and our community.  This building is a result of their vision and is available for general use by the public.

The Veterans Reception Center partners with the Iowa Veterans Cemetery to provide a place for friends and family to gather after an internment service, at no cost to the family.

Many community activities are held throughout the year at our facilities, such as Boy Scout and Cub Scout meetings, morning coffee club, monthly bingo, community meals and a summer farmers market.

Please visit the Post 403 website for membership, events and contact information.
