Sunnyslope, Arizona #2957

Brenda Garrioch

Grand Madam President
Lethbridge, Alberta #2100

Teddy Roosevelt said “Far and away the best prize that life has to offer is the chance to “Work Hard at Work worth Doing”.

Today many of our Aerie and Auxiliaries struggle with the after effects of COVID restrictions and overcoming these obstacles will take an all-out effort recruiting the volunteers necessary to “Do the Hard Work.

Recruiting volunteers is paramount to our future. It will require commitment and a tenacious attitude to show these brothers and sisters the importance of their participation. Future volunteers are out there, sitting at the bar, playing Bingo, Darts, and Golfing in Eagle Tournaments. We have to help them learn to “Drink the Kool-Aid”. We cannot accept “NO” for an answer. Many of you were not given the opportunity to say no when you were asked to be an officer. Some of you were even tricked into being an officer and we must be just as persistent in our endeavors to recruit volunteers. 

I believe we are all here on this planet to do more than just exist. We are here to make a difference. I also believe the Fraternal Order of Eagles was not created just to exist. The Eagles provides a multitude of opportunities to make a difference. From accepting a leadership role, Fund Raising, and Community Involvement, making a difference in the lives of so many by lessening ills, while living the Principles and Values that define our organization is our Purpose. Many see us as a charity organization, but we are so much more. We are Standard Bearers for Home for Country and for God; we are believers, in Liberty, Truth, Justice, and Equality; and above all, we are American & Canadian Patriots, subscribing to the Ideals that define our Countries. This is who we are and this is why our existence is so important.

So, if we are to continue supporting our local communities, raising money for State and National Charities, if we are to continue making a difference and standing up for what we believe in, then WE must find the Brothers and Sisters who are willing to do the “Hard Work worth Doing who are willing to “Get Off the Bench and Get in the Game”. Let’s show them what it’s like to feel that Passion and ability to power through to dig down, to find that fire, and that drive, to do more than just exist and show them how to be a part of something that’s making a difference.

The Eagles is the Hard Work Worth Doing and when we Get Off the Bench and Get in the Game we can ensure that no future generation will have to live in a world WITHOUT, the Fraternal Order of Eagles.

Thank you Brothers and Sisters for your continuing support, thank you for your commitment to this wonderful organization and thank you for being EAGLES!
