The American Legion, Post 820
1268 Palm Ave
Imperial Beach CA 91932
American Legion Imperial Beach Post 820, has been serving VETERANS and their Family members from all branches of our Armed forces since 1965. We have an very active Auxiliary and SA L's, which meets in the Post home on Tuesday Evenings. The Auxiliary on the 1st Tuesday at 1900 (7 p.m.) and the SAL on the 2nd Tuesday at 1600 (4 p.m.) of each month. Our Post meeting is on the 4th Tuesday of the month at 1900 ( 7 p.m). To view the monthly event calender check with our special event calendar tab. Dues are going up for the Post, starting for the year 2015 dues will be $40.00. Still a great bargin for a year.
The Legion year is coming to an end and we will have Elections of new Officers in May. Without our Officers we would not have an American Legion Post, Auxiliary or Sons of the American Legion. Many of you have been members here for a long time, when have you come to a meeting and made your ideas known? Sitting in the Club-room and talking about what needs to be done, or sitting on the Patio is not the way things get done. We need all members to come to their respected meetings and speak up. Why do we have such a poor turn out for our meetings. We need you, without you we are nothing and we need you to volunteer. One hour a month is not to much to ask. If we do not fill our chairs with willing officers we could loose our charter and our Post. I would hate for this to happen.
Memorial Day Rememberance will be hel on 26 May at Veterans Park at 1000. As with all other Memorial Day's we will be there with the VFW and the FRA. Please make it a point to be there to honor our fallen few. Remember "ALL GAVE SOME, SOME GAVE ALL".
I have place TAPS in the History section. For those who want to know who as passed to the side of the Supreme Commander. Check it out. I will try to keep this up to date and also place those who are in the hospital.
