In order to protect the health of our employees and to continue to provide you with uninterrupted service, the Grand Aerie Headquarters will be operating with a limited number of staff members in the building each day. Those not in the office will be working remotely to answer your questions.

A Message From The Grand Presidents

Brothers & Sisters, 

Due to the coronavirus situation and that fact that many state governments have forced the closure of Aeries, we will be suspending all Grand Aerie travel for the time being, including the Grand Worthy President and Grand Madam President’s travels, and will reassess future travel arrangements on April 1, 2020. 

The Grand Worthy President’s Office will be in touch with those handling previously scheduled visitations and will be keeping future visitation sites informed as this situation evolves.

A Message From the Grand Board of Trustees & GWP Ron Malz

Brothers & Sisters, 

The Fraternal Order of Eagles Grand Aerie continues to monitor the COVID-19 (coronavirus) situation across the United States and Canada and we hope that all of our members are taking the necessary precautions to remain safe as the issue continues to evolve. 

Many of you have asked us questions regarding opening your Aerie homes to members, meetings, etc., upcoming State/Provincial Conventions and our International Convention this summer in Spokane. 

Regarding local business, we’re asking all of our Aeries to keep a watchful eye on the recommendations of your local government officials and to fully comply with any orders they may issue within your States/Provinces and local communities.

Eagle Village Officially Opens New Rec Center

On February 23, Eagle Village unveiled a bigger, better recreational center for residents, members, and guests to enjoy. The project, which has been under construction for the last few months, features more than 5,000 sq. ft. on the inside, and 1,200 sq. ft. for the covered deck outside. The rec center features one large open space for gatherings and celebrating events, such as birthdays and holidays, instead of the old structure’s multi-room layout.

Members of the Grand Aerie and the Eagle Village board were on hand to cut the ribbon on the new building, including Grand Worthy President Carl Burnett and Past Grand Worthy President and Eagle Village board member Jerry L. Sullivan.

Merry Christmas from Carl & Althea

Brothers and Sisters,

It’s the giving season - what better way to celebrate the holidays than by putting that charitable energy back into your community.

As we celebrate the holidays with our beloved family and friends, we should take the time to reflect on the charitable acts that took place in 2018.

Throughout the 2017 and 2018 fraternal year, more than $3,600,000 was donated to the Charity Foundation. Which is an impressive feat that exemplifies your hard work and selfless dedication to helping others.

Help Us Help Paradise Eagles #2960

Earlier this month, Paradise Eagles Aerie #2960 was lost due to the devastating Camp wildfire that ravaged Northern California. Members of the Paradise Eagles have lost homes and other possessions and are just beginning the process of picking up the pieces and starting a new.

In recent weeks, Chico Eagles #218 has assisted by welcoming those without a home into their Aerie and providing them with meals each day and a safe place to lay their heads at night.

Diabetes Research Center Fund to facilitate the trials.
