Welcome to Banderas Bay's
American Legion Post 14
We have our general meeting every third Tuesday of the month.
Please contact us or check the Coming Events below for meeting locations. The executive meeting is held the first Thursday of every month at noon at Steve's Bar, which is located at 286 Basilio Badillo, in Old Town Vallarta. Check their website at Puerto Vallarta Sports Bar for more information.
One of the main methods Post 14 contributes to the community is through various fund raising efforts. Another way we help is to provide necessary resources and manpower to improve various institutions in the Banderas Bay area. These institutions include Day Care Centers, Senior Citizens Homes, Schools for the Disabled and Deaf, Public Schools in rural areas and other private institutions needing building maintenance. If you are going to be in Puerto Vallarta and would like to help us help the local community please complete this short survey. Thank you and we hope to see you soon.
