According to a news release, American Legion Post 795 is in dire need of updating and is a small post of 94 members. Post 795 is one of three posts in California that owns its own building and land. They are currently in need of new carpet, a new kitchen, a new roof, chimney repair and remodeling.

City council instructed staff to move forward on creating an Independence Day parade in early March. Past July 4 parades honoring the Legion were organized by city councilwoman JoAnn Conner through her business, Golden Bear Events, as a fundraiser.
