Fond du Lac, Wisconsin - April 2019

• The Fond du Lac Eagles Aerie #270’s Anglers Fishing Club offered a free breakfast to the local police officers, sheriff’s deputies and firemen working on the morning of April 7 as a way to thank them for their service to our community. 

• During the Fond du Lac Aerie #270 State Officers Party, Wi. State President Daniel Scheer presented Mary Kleman of the Children’s Hospitals of Wisconsin a check for $2,700 from a grant towards his State Project, Children’s Abuse Prevention. Daniel partnered with Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin Fox Valley for his State Project to help local area children in need of help. Kleman stated that a lot of times, to help the child, they are actually helping families overcome issues to provide a stable home for the family. Another check from the Aerie was presented to Scheer to go towards his State Project, which has raised almost $12,000 so far this year, separate from the grant noted above.
