IT’S BACK ! !
Starting at 2 PM on Sunday, June 20, we have 10 games of BINGO ending at approximately 4 PM with a blackout game. Come in and enjoy BINGO with your friends and neighbors. Make this a regular social event! The Legion is a family oriented, friendly establishment and we welcome families in our establishment. If our parking lot is full, please feel free to park across the street in the Waldorf School parking lot on Sundays as the school has allowed the Legion to use their lot for our overflow parking on Sunday. Your support of the Legion by attending our Sunday BINGO event assists the Legion in meeting our mission to support our veterans and community events. So not only will you have some great entertainment you will also be contributing to our veterans and the community! We are a non-profit, family oriented fraternal veteran’s organization and operate a safe and friendly establishment. The Post also has video poker, lottery, and keno games available for adults 21 and older for your enjoyment. Our facility is also available for rent should you desire a venue capable of supporting 150+ with a commercial kitchen and full service lounge. Visit our web site: www.alpost180.org or our face book page: www.facebook.com/alpost180milwaukieor for more information about our Post and how you might become a member of our family of organizations (Legion, Auxiliary, Sons of American Legion, and American Legion Riders).

A short excerpt from Post 180 Commander:
When will this COVID issue end? New guidelines regarding masks have been promulgated and we are back to wearing masks in-doors, vaccinated or not. Please when you attend an event or activity at the Post, wear your masks unless eating or drinking. The Post is abiding by the state guidelines and please don’t argue with the lounge staff about this issue.
In November we are bringing back our Thanksgiving Feast which is open to the public on Thanksgiving. It is a FREE event but we are seeking your support with food donations as well as monetary contributions to help us cover the cost of the event.

Milwaukie Post 180 of American Legion is equipped and available to serve the needs of our community in the area of family gatherings, dinner events and various forms of entertainment. The Post can provide a raised production stage that overlooks floor space and tables that can seat up to eighty or possibly even 100 people. Microphone and loudspeaker equipment is available as desired.
If you have a special family member birthday that you would like to celebrate, the Post should be on your list of desirable venues. Other activities might be weddings, anniversaries, graduations or any reason to give a dinner or maybe present a special speaker to an invited assembly.
Membership in Post 180 of The American Legion certainly has its benefits. You will find that the cost of sponsorship of a personal event for a member can even be zero (0) dollars. That is a price that you will be hard pressed to beat! If you are not presently a member of Post 180, but are a veteran, it could be worthwhile to check your eligibility for membership.
(Scheduled for Veterans Day, 11 November, 2021)
The 50th Vietnam War Commemorative Committee met and planned a Veterans Day activity for 11/11/2021 at 1PM in Scott Park, Milwaukie, Oregon. Scott Park, and the Vietnam War Memorial that it contains is next to Ledding Library. This gathering will be to Honor those from Clackamas County that passed during the Vietnam Conflict. There will be a short ceremony and reading of the names inscribed on the memorial obelisk at 1:30 PM. Flowers will be laid, and the site will be open from 1PM-3PM that day.
The pandemic has prevented our community from gathering at this memorial venue since Veterans Day, 2018. Please place this date (11/11/2021) on your calendar. It is suggested that you bring a folding chair, as desired.
