The John Richards American Legion Auxiliary Unit 284 met February 18, 2018, at the Daybreak Cafe in Fairfax, Missouri. The American Legion dues have changed starting in 2019. Unit 284 will be asking $25 for adults and $4.25 for junior members. The reason for the increase is the Missouri department has increased the amount of state dues.
