About Us

We are located at 9847 W. Desert Cove Ave., Peoria AZ 85345 off of 99th Ave (east side). We are north of Peoria Ave., and south of Sun City Blvd. Specifically, we are the big red brick building just south of the Immanuel Campus of Care nursing home. We have a full-service kitchen with a dining room (doubles as our Bingo Hall) and a social quarters (a.ka., bar) where you can dance or play pool or a game of electronic Bingo. We are a non-smoking post. There is an outside patio on the west side for smokers that has a misting system and shade screens. 

 

 

WE'RE BACK!!! Followed an extended negotiation, our Bingo License has finally been released. This means that the Bingo Technology Aids will be back up and running on Friday the 26th of August. Bar Bingo will resume on Thursday the 1st of September, and Bingo Open to The Public will resume on Saturday the 3rd of September.

 

 

2023 cards are now available as of 1 July (a.k.a. Early Bird Renewal). National Target Date: The NEXT National Membership Target (55%, or 891 renewals) is 10 October. If you renew by Friday the 21st of October, you won't get another renewal reminder mailed to you in the November time-frame. You can pay by cash, check or credit card (50-cent fee for credit card processing @ bar). If I am not in the office, one of our bar staff employees will take your payment and give you a white paid receipt (a.k.a., your temporary membership card) that will also reflect if you want your actual card mailed or left behind bar to be picked up by you.

You can also renew ONLINE by going to  www.legion.org/renew  and click “Renew Now” to safely and conveniently pay your  dues. Once a member enters the information requested, he or she can set the account for automatic annual renewal, as well as select the option to receive email renewal notices instead of notices through the mail. If the membership is current, he or she may still choose to sign up for automatic annual renewal and/or to receive renewal notices by email only. Automatic renewal can also be set up by calling the toll-free American Legion customer service line at (800) 433-3318. Once you renew, within 24 hours, National will notity your Adjutant who will mail your membership card to you, so ensure your Legion file has a correct mailing address, phone number contact, and email address if you want to get important notices from YOUR Post 62.

Please note: Some of you have noticed that your renewal notice reflects "you have been a member since 2022" - almost everybody got the same member notice. This was due to a printing error @ National. Your 2023 membership card will reflect the correct number of years (hopefully, and with exceptions) that you have been an American Legion member!  But some of this also has to do with when you renewed. As an example, if you waited until March 2022 to renew, National is already downloading the information to print up the 2023 cards as well as the renewal notices that would 1st go out in July 2022, so your payment information isn't being updated and your cards are reflecting a missed payment and the continuous years are dropping back to 1. I am working with National and Deprtment to correct this which is why some of your membership cards have an ink change on them.

***Something to think about: You can save your Post some mailing costs (avg $900 per year) by sending or bringing a self-adressed stamped envelope with your payment. You can also request that your 2023 card be left behind the bar for pickup (not an option for ONLINE payments unless you reach out to me and tell me to leave it behind the bar). Thank you.

Queen of Hearts

The pot is currently at $34,854 - The Queen LIVES!!!! Raffle is open to only American Legion Family members 21 years of age or older. Note: Tentative new members aren’t eligible to play until voted in by their prospective General Membership Meeting (Legion, Auxiliary & Sons). It is the responsibility of members who participate in this raffle to stay current on the Queen of Hearts Raffle rules posted with the cards. There is a question about Guests. As per our House Rules, "All guests eligible for membership in the American Legion are asked to join. Those electing not to do so will have visitation privileges discontinued after three (3) visits in one year." Wives of members fall into this category as they are eligible to join the Auxiliary. This could become an issue as the crowd builds along with the size of the pot!

 

 

 

DID YOU KNOW? If you buy the winning Powerball or Mega Millions jackpot ticket at Post 62, as an incentive, the Post gets a $50,000 reward for selling that ticket - something to think about!
