Local Organizations

Volunteer Almond OrchardOrganizations

Service clubs perform many vital services for the community and other worthy causes. These clubs are a type of voluntary organization where members meet regularly for social outings and to perform charitable works either by direct hands-on efforts or by raising money for other organizations.


Be a part of the solution and have fun. Here we have many organizations where you can connect with others and learn how you can help your community.

American Legion Post #190

The American Legion is an organization for wartime veterans. It is the nation’s largest wartime veterans service organization, committed to mentoring youth and sponsorship of wholesome programs in our communities, advocating patriotism and honor, promoting strong national security, and continued devotion to our fellow servicemembers and veterans. Our Clinton McCausland post has served Ripon since 1926, and currently has over 120 veterans, who, along with our Auxiliary Unit and our new Sons of the American Legion Squadron, support our community in many ways. These veterans and volunteers provide support and raise funds for veterans issues and for the Ripon community, focusing on our youth.
