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.
