The next Palomar College Comets Football Home Game is November 6th

We have a SAL member who is on the Palomar Comets, along with a number of Veterans. So let's show up in force to support them, wear your blue cap, or legion baseball cap, and best Legion regalia and let's cheer them on!

The game starts at 1800 but I am told people start tailgating at 1630. All home games are played at Escondido High School 1535 N. Broadway, Escondido, CA 92026.

The Oceanside VA Clinic needs volunteers for the Front Desk, Coffee Services, Shuttle Drivers, Transportation Coordinator, and afternoon VAN Drivers. Please contact La Jolla VA Hospital Volunteer Services at 858-642-3267. Orientation is done completely online and La Jolla VA Hospital can get you started today.

Recyclables Needed

Every dollar we save by recycling goes to the general fund. We collect donations of empty printer and toner cartridges, old cell phones, Copper, Brass, Aluminum, Steel, plastic bottles, glass bottles, and any plastic container that has a 2, 3, or 5 triangle code. Plastic bottles need to have the lids removed. In addition, please separate the CA CRV from the non-CRV containers as these items are recycled differently. Bring them to the monthly meeting or contact the Adjutant at adjutant@legionpost146.org or 760-754-9633 for other arrangements.
