Jack London Post 489 will continue its commitment by assisting active duty military personnel, veterans and our community. A sample of what we do is, supporting Blue and Gold Star Families, Sonoma Valley Veterans Memorial Park, Wreaths Across America, sending packages to active military overseas, Boys and Girls State, Fisher House at Travis AFB, local veterans in need and local children educational scholarships.

The Post welcomes new members or guests to its dinner and meetings which are held the second Thursday of each month at the Sonoma Valley Veterans Memorial Building 126 First Street West, Sonoma; dinner and social at 6pm, followed by the meeting at 7 p.m.
