The American Legion supports veterans and veterans’ rights. There are currently 7 posts in Darke County. The Ansonia post raises most of their monies from their Bingo license with tickets being sold daily. A portion of their proceeds must go to charities and they prefer to give those monies to local organizations.

The Cancer Association of Darke County is sincerely appreciative of this donation. The monies will help to cover the costs of patient services, which will help over 180 patients this month. The association exists to provide support for people in Darke County that have been diagnosed with cancer. The support that is given provides reimbursement to patients for expenses including: mileage, medication, medical supplies, and nutritional supplementation. The organization also offers a monthly support group, a volunteer driver program, free wigs and head coverings for cancer patients, educational materials for the prevention and early detection of all cancers, information booths at various Darke County events, and speakers for groups interested in learning more about our organization. The Cancer Association is an independent non-profit organization not affiliated with the American Cancer Society or other organizations. The Association exists because of donations from organizations such as the

American Legion, private individuals, fund raisers, clubs, etc. For more information about the Cancer Association of Darke County, please call the office at 937-548-9960.
