Many years ago, Dr. Isaac Pope started a friendship with the Fraternal Order of Eagles. Through his many discussions with Eagles, the dream of Pope’ Kid’s Place came to life. The Eagles and Dr. Pope wanted to establish a new Transition/Respite Center for youth. Presidents Ivan Wilson and Charlene Butterfield dedicated their year as State Presidents (2011-12) to the cause and helped raise more than $104,000 for the project. The money was invested with additional donations included as the years progressed. In Sept. 2016, ground was broken on the construction of the center. 11 months later, the facility was officially dedicated to the Fraternal Order of Eagles and named Eagles House. In attendance for the ceremony were Wilson and Butterfield, as well as Eagles Grand Worthy President Tom McGrath.
