Thank You For Another Incredible Convention!

The Grand Aerie would like to thank the thousands of you who came out to Dallas July 7-12 for another amazing International Convention.

During the week, we gave out an incredible $480,000 in grants and collected more than $23,000 for the FOE Charity Foundation through our 50/50 raffles. 

You helped us celebrate the installation of Grand Worthy President Carl Burnett and Grand Madam President Althea Lane, crowned three new and incredible God, Flag & Country winners, joined us for a full slate of educational classes and made the week beyond memorable for all.

Below, you'll find a recap of some of our charitable efforts, as well as embedded videos which were played during the Convention to celebrate some of our great achievements.

In the bar on the right, you'll find links to photo galleries from the week's festivities.

Thank you again for coming out to Dallas and we hope to see as many of you as possible next summer in Louisville, Kentucky, at the Galt House Hotel.
