 * * *  Message from Manager  * * *  Until further notice, all poker players MUST be a Post 32 member. Please carry your card for proof of membership. Due to stricter precautions regarding the spread of Covid-19, we may, in the near future require proof of vaccination, a recent (within the last 72 hours) negative test result for Covid-19, or a doctor's note.


Raffle Announcement Longmont American Legion Post 32 is sponsoring a raffle of a 27+1/2” by 20+1/8” lithograph color print of the Doolittle Raid, which took place on April 18, 1942. This lithograph was generously donated by new member Tracy Perry.

It features Doolittle’s airplane taking off from the USS Hornet aircraft carrier on its way to bomb Japan.  What makes the print truly unique is that it bears the signatures of 49 of the 80 original Doolittle Raiders, including that of General Jimmy Doolittle.  The picture above is a miniature likeness of the print.  

Raffle Tickets are now on sale.

The cost is one raffle ticket for $5.00 or five raffle tickets for $20.00. Any member wishing to sell tickets can "sign" out any number of tickets to be sold. Be sure to write on the ticket "Sold by (your name)" to be eligible for the $100 prize for most tickets sold by a Post 32 member. Again, tickets may be purchased from any Post 32 member, a bartender, or by calling or emailing the Club Manager, Jen Bowar, at (303) 776-2034, jenbowar77@americanlegion32.com

The raffle will be held on the 80th Anniversary of the raid, April 18, 2022, at Post 32 at 1900 hours.

Also, on the night of the drawing, a $100 gift will be awarded to the Post 32 member who sells the most raffle tickets!

Hello Volunteers! Thank you for such a successful 2021 ceremony, I hope you all had a great holiday season & happy new year. WREATH CLEANUP Wreath Retirement 2022.pngThe wreath clean up is officially scheduled for Sunday, January 23 at 12PM. This event is weather-dependent and if it will be rescheduled, you'll be notified 1-2 days in advance. We will meet at the ceremony location in front of the statue, please avoid parking on the 3 roads immediately to the 3 sides of the statue so we can use them for wreath cleanup. We are looking for local farms to take the wreaths for snacks or bedding for their animals. If you are interested, please contact me. We will need several pickups to deliver wreaths to local farms, so if you are able to do this please contact me as well. I will have more information once we find places for all 1,500+ wreaths. For the wreath clean up, please bring scissors or a pocket knife, gloves and dress warm. Wagons or broomsticks are great as well, so you can bring more back at once! SPONSORSHIP GROUP MATCH FOR 2022 CEREMONY It's never too early to give the gift of a veteran's wreath today as a gift for December 2022. Now through January 14, 2022 every wreath donated through a sponsorship group will be MATCHED by Wreaths Across America HQ.
