Thanks to everyone for playing.  We raised $100 for the Madam Presidents’ charity The Big Boys of Gladwin County.



Special thanks to all our members who have paid their dues If you have paid your dues – please pick them up at the club.

Your orange key card will not work as of June 1st!  You will have to buzz in to enter the club (a real inconvenience to the bartenders); if buzzed you will be asked if you have paid and haven’t picked up your card or asked to pay your dues before purchasing alcohol.

Thanks your Aerie and Auxiliary Secretaries

Attention Smokers!!

It has been very evident that some of our smokers are not aware that there are ashtrays and receptacles for your cigarette butts.  Smoking areas are designated and both have receptacles for your butts.  Please DO NOT throw your butts in the flower beds or grassy areas etc. unless you are willing to volunteer for the monthly work party to clean these areas up.

Junior Order of Eagles Anyone


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).   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 please contact Kyle Proctor at 313-268-6101.
