As if there were not enough social avenues at the time, on November 20, 1933 nineteen World War I veterans organized Verona's first American Legion Post, Mason-Lindsay Post 385. The post was named in honor of William Mason and Frank Lindsay. The Post was the brainchild of eleven men who met at the Verona Village Hall in September of that same year. Those men included: William Kunstman, M.C. Hanson, George McKee, John Olday, John Batker, Wilson Mutchler, Andrew Hoff, James Doyle, C.R. Garrity, A.C. Jones and J.E. Lillesand.

Charter members besides those attending the September meeting were Frank Francom, William C. Hageman, C. Howard King, Carl Meister, E.B. Pitel, George Sarbacker. Olai Thompson and Melleville Swenson. At one time the Legion owned what is the front portion of what is now Wildcat Lanes (415 W. Verona Ave), and held their meetings there. (This location was purchased by the Sugar Creek United Methodist Church in 2014).

Not to be outdone by their husbands, seven area women met at the Village Hall on November 7, 1939 to organize the Mason-Lindsay Unit 385 of the American Legion Auxiliary. Those women were: Lydia Batker, Allice Brennan, Wilma Hughes, A.C. Jones, Molly Gordon, Bessie Niglis, and Alice Kunstman. On November 27 of that year they and an additional twenty women signed the charter at the home of William and Alice Kunstman.
