TEMPLETON — The Templeton post of the American Legion was chartered in April 1922 — it will be 91 years old on its next birthday. The American Legion Auxiliary was chartered in April, 1923 — it will be 90 years old on its next birthday.

Which puts the two related groups right in between two 90-year birthdays.

But neither will really celebrate the birthday with such trappings as cakes and balloons. The groups exist to support veterans and their families. So while 90 is a significant milestone, the organizations have much better reasons to celebrate: the people they serve.
