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 sunscreens that can be lowered and a misting system to cool things off a bit. You can bring your drink out to the patio. However, you can't take your drink onto the sidewalk or out to the parking lot - your membership will be suspended for such an infraction.

2023 cards will be available on 1 July.    I just wanted to inform you that there was an error in the 1st run of card extracts/printing (NOT by us at Post 62). Some of our membership cards are being mailed to another Post. Some members will receive duplicate mailings because of duplicate cards. Some will have the wrong number of continuous years and will require pen/ink changes. These errors may delay getting membership cards processed and mailed out from 24 hours up to 72 hours or longer. We here at Post 62 apologize for the inconvenience.   ***Something to think about; saving money for our post - you can save us some mailing costs by sending in a self-addressed stamp envelope to mail your 2023 cards back to you...or request that your membership card be left behind the bar to be picked up by you (by the end of the month if possible?). Thank you.

 

The Officers of Post 62 would like to thank all those who contributed food for our Memorial Day observance, and to those who volunteered their time to support this day. This helped to feed over 200 members and their guests. Today, as we took down this Pot Luck sign-up sheet, it was replaced with an Independence Day Pot Luck sign-up sheet; only 34 days away! See you there!

 

 

                                                         

The Post 62 Air Rifle Team is raffling off an Eagle Clock . Tickets are $1 each, or 6 for $5 - see your favorite bartender for tickets. Drawing to be held on July 4th.

 

RED (Remember Everyone Deployed) shirts are now available at the Post; Men's sizes Large, X-Large and XX-Large. For the Ladies, V-neck sizes are: S, M, Large, X-Large and XX-Large. Get yours today while quantities last!

 

 

Queen of Hearts

The pot is currently at $20,282. 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! 

 

 
ARE YOU INTERESTED? The Post 62 Junior Air Rifle team is looking for assistant coaches to help train 14-17 kids on the team. It does require the completion of some online junior marksmanship training courses. For more information, contact Tom McClain @ 623-337-6518. Thank you.
