The American Legion was created in 1932 as an organization within The American Legion the S.A.L. is made up of boys and men of all ages whose parents or grandparents served in the United States military and became eligible for membership in The American Legion. Together, members of The American Legion, The American Legion Auxiliary, the American Legion Riders, and the Sons of The American Legion make up what is known as The Legion Family. All four organizations place high importance on preserving our American traditions and values, improving the quality of life for our nation’s children, caring for veterans and their families, and perhaps most importantly, teaching the fundamentals of good citizenship.

What We Do


  • The SAL are involved in Legion ceremonies including Memorial Day and Veterans Day ceremonies

Community Service

  • We annually have 2 SAL Scholarships.  One to a High School Senior from Morrisville High School and a Senior from Lower Bucks County Technical School to help them with tuition going onto the college/school of their choice.
  • We Sponsor and pay for any High School student looking to attend the Keystone Boys State Program typically held in the summer for a week where the student(s) learn about how US Government works where they learn and do role playing.
    The Yardley SAL every year lines the streets of Yardley Borough with American Flags that brings a patriotic feel to the Borough that is well received by the community.
  • SAL also supports the “Carry the Load” event in Yardley Borough by putting up flags for the event and supporting the event by attendance. 
  • SAL members with businesses also support the event financially.

Memorial Maintenance

  • We maintain the Memorial landscaping on the East side of Afton Avenue by the Yardley Inn.
  • We support, assist and attend other Legion, Legion Auxiliary and Riders events when they are held.  (Legion family events) Example: We just received a Thank you note for support of the Auxiliary “2021 Veterans Giving Tree” program.  We help the Auxiliary with their Annual Flea Market that has grown into a successful event.  (set-up and food sales)  
  • We assisted with the funding of the newer bar stools a few years ago and financially support any other improvements needed at the Post including equipment, fixtures, etc.

Helping Veterans

  • The SAL donates as needed to support our veterans in any way that we can financially or otherwise.

Donations to Other American Legions

  • In 2021 we donated to the Lambertville American Legion that was significantly damaged by Hurricane Ida.
