VOLUNTEER RULES OF THE ROAD

Volunteer Status: There are NO paid positions at American Legion Post 131.  Bartenders, maintenance people, cooks, waiters, dishwashing, house committee, Post Officers, and others involved in making Post 131 operate on a day-to-day basis are all volunteers of their time, energy, and talents. 

Tips/Gratuities: Our bartenders do work for TIPS only. During food events, we ask that you kindly TIP the other volunteers who serve you by patiently taking your food orders, delivering those orders, and cleaning up the dining room upon your departure.  Thank You!

Meal and Refreshments: Volunteers receive a post after-shift beverage and a FREE meal during the volunteer’s “shift” or while performing other volunteer duties at the Post.
