Visit our new Website at www.supportwalcotroops.webs.com

Since November 29. 2004 the Support Our Troops Committee of the Walworth County Council of the American Legion has held a rally in the Board Room of the County Government Center on the square in downtown Elkhorn at 11:00AM every Monday.  Post 95 of Delavan was an original advocate of the concept and immediatly embraced the idea of weekly rallies to show support of troops with ties to Walworth County who are serving or who have served in Iraq and Afghanistan.  Every Monday morning since November 29,2004 members of Post 95 and the auxiliary play a major role in the rallies and Post 95 has contributed generously.
