Wreaths Across America raises funds throughout July to remember fallen veterans
Note: There is a link within the article that you can click on if you would like to donate and sponsor a wreath.
OR, you can mail a check the American Legion, 315 S. Bowen, Longmont, CO 80501.
Make check payable to Wreaths Across America. Attn: Jen or Ann

Good afternoon,

We are very excited to be dedicating the entire month of July to sharing the WAA mission to REMEMBER, HONOR, and TEACH by highlighting the groups and individuals giving back to their local communities through the $5 pay back Sponsorship Program. 
We call it Giving in July and it's a wonderful opportunity to feature the hundreds of like-minded charities, community programs, and civic groups throughout the country who are contributing to their local communities, while also generating wreath sponsorships to honor local heroes. 
While we appreciate the efforts of all sponsorship groups, Giving in July is specifically meant to highlight the groups who take advantage of the $5 pay back program. Through this Sponsorship Program, donations not only sponsor veteran wreaths, but groups on this plan receive $5 back for every $15 wreath sponsored. These payback funds from Wreaths Across America allow these groups to support their own mission and give back to their local community, essentially “doing good twice.” Through this national program, WAA has given back nearly $15 million in local contributions over the last 13 years!
Sponsorship groups who have selected the 3-for-2 plan will continue to receive 3 wreaths for every 2 wreaths sponsored through their group. This program is a wonderful way for these groups to maximize the number of veterans who are honored and remembered with a wreath on National Wreaths Across America Day this December! Groups on the 3-for-2 plan do not also receive $5 back for every paid wreath sponsorship. If you are unsure which plan your group is participating in, please contact me for clarification.

Thank you for all you do!

Beaver Lake

The beaver lake committee met on Tuesday, July 20. Topics discussed were current and ongoing maintenance issues (broken water pipe and broken outhouse), coverage of caretakers, by-laws, name transfer fees, speeding, noise control/etiquette and excess boats being stored.
As of now the committee will be working on an audit of space holder transfer fees. If you have recently purchased a trailer/space the transaction doesn't not end with paying for the trailer and annual space fee. There is also a name transfer fee of $50. If you haven't yet filled out the space/trailer transfer form you can click here and send a check to the post attn: Beaver Lake.

 A message from the Trustees

As you all know the past year has been very difficult financially for the Post 32 family. We now need to ask all of our wonderful members to help us out of these tough times. Anyone willing to volunteer their expertise to help out would be greatly appreciated. Specifically, we need help with the kitchen crews (Sunday breakfast, lunches, Friday night dinners, etc.), computer updates and troubleshooting, special programs and fundraisers, Post, Unit and SAL officers. We also need everyone to show up for our various meetings to make your thoughts and concerns be heard. At this point in time we only have a few brave souls willing to take part in the solutions. Step up one and all to help us through these tough times.

Bob Larkowski


To all American Legion Auxiliary Members: If you would like to be on our email blast, please send your email address and name to me.  I usually send out one blast a month and attach our meeting minutes to it.  This way you can keep in the loop of all the Unit's activities.  Thanks for supporting veterans!
Susie Bozella,  ALA Unit 32, Secretary
