American Legion Post 491
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 service members and veterans.
American Legion Auxiliary Unit 491
Over the years, The American Legion Family has influenced considerable social change in America, won hundreds of benefits for veterans, helped military families through transition and produced many important programs for our country’s youth.
Today, ALA members across the country are helping military families cope with the effects of multiple deployments. The toll on our all-volunteer force and their families has been enormous. The Auxiliary’s efforts are focused in three primary areas:
VFW Post 7835
The Veterans of Foreign Wars of the United States is a nonprofit Veterans Organization. No one does more for Veterans. Annually, the 2.1 million members of the VFW and its Auxiliary contribute more than 11 million hours of volunteerism in the community, including participation in Make A Difference Day and National Volunteer Week.From providing over $3 million in college scholarships and savings bonds to students every year, to encouraging elevation of the Department of Veterans Affairs to the president’s cabinet, the VFW is there.
Granbury Area Blue Star Mothers
We are mothers, stepmothers, grandmothers, foster mothers and female legal guardians who have children serving in the military, guard or reserves, or children who are veterans. We support each other and our children while promoting patriotism. Our organization focuses on our mission every single day and will never, ever, forsake our troops, our veterans or the families of our Fallen Heroes.
Granbury, Texas Brigade
The Granbury Brigade is an all-volunteer organization in Granbury, Texas that promotes tourism and assists non-profit organizations in the Hood County area.
Granbury Chamber of Commerce
Since 1952, the Granbury Chamber of Commerce has been dedicated to strengthening and promoting the economic success of our community through effective leadership. The fourth largest chamber in the Fort Worth-Dallas metroplex and 900 members strong, the Chamber has forged strong partnerships with the City of Granbury and nearby Hood County communities, as well as with local economic development and tourism entities. Chamber committees and task forces actively improve the economic welfare of the community through study, recommendations and actions related to transportation, business retention and expansion, education, government affairs and the environment. Chamber staff and volunteers produce Granbury’s nationally celebrated Old-Fashioned 4th of July.
