The Bulletin is published monthly by the La Mesa Post 282. The purpose is to provide information about the Post, the Auxiliary, and the Sons of the American Legion as well as to provide a calendar of events that includes the activities of all organizations comprising the La Mesa Veterans Club.

If you would like to submit articles for publication in the Bulletin send them to the Post Commander. The deadline date for submissions for the next month's Bulletin or calendar is the 20th of the current month. Electronic submission is preferred, but if we can read your writing your article will be considered.

The Officers of the Post maintain final authority over final content.


As a reminder, opening protocols are that we must adhere to the “Big 4” which are:

  1. Screening of employees and volunteers to include temperature checks
  2. Aggressive sanitation and hygiene. For this, we have installed UVC bulbs in the heating/air conditioner system, two fans, and two units in each lower room that sanitizes when the facility is closed. These lights, used in hospitals, kills mold spores, odors, germs, viruses, tobacco smoke, pet odors, and cooking smells. Proven studies show that after just a few hours of operation, the light significantly reduces the most common types of air pollution. Thus, though we are inside, the air is continually sanitized.
  3. Face coverings (when not seated)
  4. Physical distancing. We have spaced our tables. Practice social distancing at all times from those who are not in your household. Each individual must be aware and self enforce.

We are also requesting that everyone wash their hands upon entering the facility. 

For American Legion and SALs, you may now mail us your dues for 2021; $45 Legion and $30 SAL.   American Legion can also renew online.  Online renewal is not available for SAL.

To keep one's eyes peeled means to be alert, observant. This seems an odd phrase, but dates back to the 1820s in Britain, when Sir Robert Peel established the first organised police force. The officers were known as 'peelers, or 'bobbies'.
