About Post 178
Lakewood Post 178 held its first meeting Februrary 15, 1941 with 32 Charter WWI members in attendance. Today over 700 veterans from WWII through the present War on Terrorism belong to Post 178. Our Women’s Auxiliary and Sons of The American Legion squadron expand total membership to over 1100.
These units plus Post 178’s Legion Riders carry out a variety of fund raising and service activities throughout the year to support veterans and youth. The Colorado State Veterans Center in Homelake and Denver’s VA Hospital are among our favorite beneficiaries.
We support our troops through programs like Angel Tree, Comfort Warriors, Fisher House, and the Legion’s National Emergency Fund. Post 178 is a major contributor to the Legion’s Child Welfare Foundation. Community organizations like Colorado Boy’s and Girl’s State, the Legion Jr. Shooters, and Colorado Veterans Kids Fund also receive our support.
Our restaurant, operated entirely by volunteers, serves a variety of homemade dishes 7 days every week. We keep prices low while still raising proceeds for the Post’s many beneficiaries. Click here to see our weekly menus.
Veteran members of Post 178 receive a free spaghetti dinner on Veteran’s Day. Our popular Memorial, Independence, and Labor Day Picnics draw hundreds of members to our spacious backyard furnished with a permanent BBQ, regulation horseshoe pits, covered pation, and extensive children’s playground. Our large meeting hall accommodates veterans’ bereavements, food buffets, and a variety of public events.
We invite you to stop by and see why Post 178 has long been known as “The Friendly Post.” When you join, you’ll find friends with a common background enjoying a home away from home while serving veterans through a wide range of family friendly activities and volunteer opportunities.
