27 December Our Grand Presidents Wish You A Very Merry Christmas! December 27, 2017 By The Fraternal Order of Eagles General 0 Brothers and Sisters, We would like to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a safe and happy holiday season. For the Fraternal Order of Eagles, this season truly exemplifies our commitment to charity and community service. During the holiday season, we send care packages to troops serving overseas through our Operation Eagle program, which is funded exclusively by our members. Across the United States and Canada, our 1,500+ locations organize holiday fundraisers, plan children’s parties and shopping sprees, and donate their time and money to help feed families in need. We always make it an organizational priority to give our best to those most in need each Winter. Currently, we’re on track for a successful membership year, however we must continue to work hard to recruit new members and meet our goal of Net Gain +2%. To help reach our mark, we’re asking everyone to “Give The Gift Of Membership” this holiday season by reaching out to someone you know who is contemplating membership with the F.O.E. and paying their first years dues. Provide your friends and family with a year of access to our Aeries, a terrific slate of Member Benefits, protection through the Memorial Foundation and an endless amount of fun, friendship and fraternalism as they participate in our numerous charitable endeavors. In addition, we’ve had several members reach out to us on how to send us gifts for the holidays. While we appreciate the kind gesture, we would like to ask that anyone interested please make a donation to our charities in lieu of gifts. Those interested can donate to the Grand Worthy President’s Charity – Bridge to the Cure, or the Grand Madam President’s Project – Honor Flight Tri-State. Thank you all again for the kindness and generosity you have shown us throughout our travels so far. We are both so proud to serve on your behalf for the 2017-2018 year and look forward to the next six months as we continue to spread the great message of the Fraternal Order of Eagles. Fraternally, Tom McGrath, Grand Worthy President Helen Poehner, Grand Madam President Related Articles 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.

Grand Convention Update Brothers & Sisters, In recent weeks, we’ve received many questions in regards to the upcoming International Convention in Spokane, Washington, and we wanted to take a moment to clarify a few things moving forward. First, as of right now, the International Convention is still scheduled to take place. If the status of the Convention changes per the orders of the state of Washington, we will let all of you know as quickly as possible through all of our available communication channels.
