The Lafayette American Legion Post #300 was established in late 1919. The Legion has an annual Memorial Day program and also a Turkey Bingo fundraiser on the Saturday prior to Thanksgiving. The Legion meets monthly on the third Tuesday each month, in the community center.
The Legion Post #300 Auxiliary was founded in January of 1922. The purpose of the auxiliary as stated in the Lafayette history book is "to foster a sense of patriotism in youth and society in general."
