Hey everyone. It has been almost a year that our Post has been closed due to Covid-19. To hopefully generate some funds until we can safely open again, we are searching for tax deductible donations in any amount. As a token of our appreciation for any donations of $25 or more you can receive two DVDs of our 100th year Anniversary celebration that we had here at the Otis Sampson American Legion Post 59 in September of 2019. If you were in attendance at this event these DVDs were played. The DVD set shows the history of the American Legion and its family along with the many functions of our Stoughton American Legion volunteers. The DVD set would make a great family keepsake. If interested, please text 608-513-8218 and arrangements will be made to receive your DVD's. Thank you for your consideration of a donation.
Each year quilters from the Quilting By The River Friends make quilts for veterans. The quilts are distributed, on Veterans Day, to all veterans in the VA hospital in Madison. Prior to the distribution, the quilts are on display at the Otis Sampson American Legion. This year, due to Covid and not being able to hold the display, the group has created a virtual quilt display.
Additionally, we are unable to distribute the quilts to the VA this year due to Covid. However, quilts are still being made for future distribution.

The Commander has decided that the post will be closed until further notice. Because state guidelines are constantly changing we have decided not to set an open date as much could change before that time.
We will be constantly assessing the situation and continue to monitor the progression of this virus, changes in state guidelines and recommendations.
Everyone is disappointed, but our first priority is the safety of our volunteers and patrons.
This includes all inside events.
Legion Hall rentals are being temporarily suspended. As the state guidelines continue to change, we have no choice but to halt rentals until we know when the Legion will be able to open up safely. We are sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused.
Please continue to check back here or our Facebook Page (https://www.facebook.com/post59stoughton) for updated information.
We appreciate your understanding on this.
