Pursuant to an order from Governor Jared Polis and the Department of Public Health and Environment, American Legion Post 32 will be temporarily suspending operations for a period expected to be 30 days beginning at 4:00 a.m. on Tuesday, March 17, 2020 as a precautionary measure against the ongoing spread of COVID-19. The Governor will be continuing to work with local, state and federal authorities to determine safe protocols for when operations may resume. Here is a link to the original Order 20-20 dated March 16
All meetings are discontinued and will be reinstated when safe to do so. All officers will remain in their current position until further notice. Beaver Lake dues will still be collected as usual. If there are any changes to dues we will adjust that at a later date. The lake is probably one of the safest places to be although I visited there on Tuesday, March 24 and there is still a lot of snow. Any questions regarding the Post or Legion operations should be called to 303-776-2034. We will answer your questions by return phone call or answer by blast of any general questions that would be helpful to the entire membership. Thanks for your cooperation and stay safe.
Happenings at Post 32
Although we are officially closed there has been some activity at Post 32. A handful of dedicated members have been working throughout the past week on getting the Post cleaned and sanitized. One of the biggest jobs has been in the kitchen. The entire kitchen has been emptied for the deep cleaning of the walls, fryers, ovens, shelving, floors, etc. Additionally, the carpets have been shampooed, replacement of stained ceiling tiles, cleaning and sanitizing of all the tables, chairs and bar stools, deep cleaning of all the bathrooms and general dusting throughout the facility to name a few.
The legion is now accepting Beaver Lake Dues. It is $700.00 for the year. Dues are due by April 30th. After April 30th there will be a $50.00 late fee imposed until the end of May. If dues are not paid by May 31 your space, trailer and all personal possessions are considered abandoned per Beaver Lake Bylaws.
With the current situation the best way to pay your lake dues is by mail.
Please mail to: American Legion Post 32

Are you willing to share your story?
Hi 32 members! I am Doug Bergman a 5 year Post member, published writer and former platoon leader in combat in Vietnam. No matter what war, I learned that telling my stories was one of the best ways to heal and come to terms with what happened to me and my unit. It has been also so very helpful to family members who wanted to know, were afraid to ask and wondered about much of my strange behavior. I have seen this in so many other vets and their families.
I would like to hear from other vets, any war, willing to stare their devil down and share their stories. My plan is to have a story night at Post 32, have some nice free food and drink, and invite our families to sit and listen as we tell the stories that have complicated our lives, In so many ways, it gets hard sitting with my back in the corner, never trusting folks, seldom getting close, and all the nasty habits that made me feel so alone and isolated. A shock to me...! telling the stories in a book and many talks helped me heal and helped my family understand!
Think about it. I want to talk to you about telling your stories at a story night with other vets. Please call me at 718-224-8246 and we will chat alone over coffee. I look forward to hearing from you.
