Elyria Eagle Riders Aerie #431 held a spaghetti dinner and raffle fundraiser for Rayshawn and Samantha Camel after they lost everything in a house fire around Christmas. During the benefit, $1,500 was raised, and the Eagle Riders and Eagle Club raised $600 out of that total. The Camels are grateful for the community’s help, especially after the house damage ended up being estimated at $40,000 and is currently uninhabitable.

Missoula, Montana - April 2018

Missoula Aerie #32 held an Easter egg hunt where hundreds of kids picked up all the eggs in a record-breaking 10 minute period. After the eggs were picked up, the children went back to the Eagles lodge for face painting and hot dogs. Chaplain Jason Duffin said this event wouldn’t be possible without all the volunteers. “I’ve been fortunate to be a member for a year and a half, an officer as well and everything we do down there is donated time. There are no requirements for how much time you put in and it’s amazing how the community comes together to be itself. We’ve had record numbers turn out and we’re hoping for more, especially from the younger generation,” said Duffin.
