Planning a special event that might be a wedding reception, change of command, promotion, retirement, birthday, training and business meeting, school or family reunion, anniversary, bridal or baby shower, ship’s homecoming, bridal or baby shower, Chief’s selection work party, or?

We have an outstanding banquet hall with a full-size elevated stage that can accommodate large bands or other performers.  The room can be easily arranged to accommodate small or large groups of approximately 200 people, with food and a full bar with bartenders serving beer, wine, spirits, and soft drinks.  Tables & chairs and an adjoining kitchen may be made available (we can also suggest caterers).  We are in a centralized location, close to the Freeway 8 and near motels.  On-site parking is plentiful and normally not a problem with plentiful off-site parking next to the building.  The banquet hall is available any day of the week, including weekends; hours available to meet your need.  Suggested donation list is affordable, much less than other venues with the same accommodations.

The banquet hall is available on a first come, first served basis to the Public, members, and veterans.  Revenues from use of the hall are used to support our various programs that benefit our membership, veterans and their families; active duty, retired, and prior military.  Programs involve, but are not limited to, participation in such as Boys State, scholarships, recognition to members of the La Mesa Police, Fire, and EMT; JROTC, Boy Scouts, flags, and other Americanism recognition.  Revenue is also used for the Vietnam Memorial that is owned and operated by our American Legion Post 282 and to ensure a facility exists that provide benefit and other counseling, social, and other needs of the veterans and their families within the City of La Mesa.

Our room is quiet  due to the installation of triple pane windows and curtains.  Our restrooms are fully ADA compliant and event lighting to accommodate various colors such as used with weddings.  We have made many enhancements that provide a suitable environment for any event. 

Always available for public access and at no cost is the Vietnam Memorial, located on Nebo Street a few steps from our parking lot.  This is a wonderful area for reflection and remembrance and is used for such as formal, military events involving reenlistment or promotion ceremonies.
