Grand Aerie Reopening Policy Brothers & Sisters, In the last few days, we have received several questions regarding whether or not Aeries are permitted to open for business yet by the Grand Aerie. To clarify, any Aerie permitted by their State/Province to reopen for business, may do so, as long as they are following any necessary guidelines set by the State/Province regarding capacity, social distancing, indoor/outdoor seating, etc. Any Aeries still affected by shutdown orders MUST remain closed until those orders are lifted. Once those orders are lifted, you may resume business operations in the capacity allowed by your State/Province.

Dallas Aerie #3108 Dedicates BBQ Competition to Fighting Human Trafficking For the past six years, Dallas Aerie #3108 has hosted their annual BBQ competition. However, last September, they decided that everyone’s love of BBQ should be leveraged to help a good cause. Due to fellow Eagles member Chad Frymire’s involvement with Dallas Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) and his board position on the North Texas Coalition Against Human Trafficking (NTCAHT), Dallas #3108 decided that all funds raised during the BBQ would be donated to NTCAHT.
