GOACC welcomes American Legion Post 49
The American Legion, Lloyd Grubbs Post 49 in Orange has joined the Greater Orange Area Chamber of Commerce. A ribbon cutting was held in coordination with the Legion’s memorial ceremony for the 9-11 Terrorist Attack in 2001. Members of the post together with Chamber Ambassadors participated in the memorial ceremony and then had their picture taken in front of the Legion Hall at 108 Green Avenue in downtown Orange .
As part of the memorial, Post 49 had written to 80 churches in the region asking them to ring their bells at designated times to remember the tragedies that took place on 9-11 eleven years ago. Earlier in the day on September 11th, churches across Orange County rang their bells in support of the Legion’s memorial efforts.

All work together in a spirit of friendship and camaraderie. This family supports each other, supports the needs of veterans and works with the less fortunate across Orange County and beyond.
