Aerie Chaplain Report

We are always thankful for all of our members and what they do.  We are blessed to have folks continuing to participate in our clubs.

We did lose one of our founding members, Gordy Gardner.  We will all miss his presence and conversation.  Another member, Bill Conquest, continues to heal and needs our prayers.  Also, Neal Peterson had a serious operation and is recovering with Mary’s help.

Rev. Roger Bauer, Aerie Chaplain


Trustees Corner

Spring has sprung (finally) and the fun is starting to ramp up with a lot more people coming. Good food, fun and laughs. Games like steaks cards; Bingo; Euchre and Darts so come join the festivities. Even when we’re not doing activities Eagle brothers and sisters from other clubs note our club as a destination for fun. We as a club; our staff and our trustees and most importantly our members try to make your visit fun and enjoyable. Sometimes we do have something go wrong but we pull together. From our members helping in the kitchen delivering food and stocking shelves; to restocking the coolers; keeping the food and fun rolling along. But even though 95% or more have a good time you know the old saying it just takes one. We do not mind criticism for it will hopefully make us do better. But social media is not the way to do it. If you see or do not like something ask a trustee or write it up and put it in the suggestion box Posting remarks as someone did on Saturday tells me he is not a good Eagle. “If you cannot speak well of an Eagle do not speak ill of them.” Whoever this might have been, Please contact us and we’ll try to solve it together

Junior Order of Eagles Anyone Interested?

After attending State Convention, it was brought to our attention that some clubs have a youth program called J.O.E. {Junior Order of Eagles).  Kyle Proctor, our auxiliary V.P., has teenage grandchildren who some of you may have seen helping in our kitchen at fish fry’s, etc.  She is interested in knowing if there are others who have youths who may want to be a younger part of this Eagles Club.  It could also be open to other Aeries if the interest is out there. It takes planning and Grand Aerie approval with dedicated adults to lead our younger generation on the importance of teamwork, respect, patriotism, selflessness, and other values.  If you have any interest in supporting the start-up of this group or know any younger children under 18 years old who may be interested in being a part of this please contact Kyle at 313-268-6101.
