Roseau, Minnesota - January 2021

For many years, Roseau Eagles Aerie and Auxiliary #3882 has served an annual Christmas Day Dinner they call “Do Not Spend Christmas Day Alone.” Typically, they prepare the meal as a sit-down dinner, but changed the service to carryout in 2020 due to the ongoing pandemic. In under two hours, they served 120 take out meals consisting of turkey, mashed potatoes, squash, cranberries, meatballs, lefse and a pumpkin roll. All items were donated. The meals were free, however some donated money which was given to Minnesota State Auxiliary President Marlene Hanson’s charity Make-A-Wish of Minnesota. Pictured are members of Roseau’s Aerie and Auxiliary and District 2 Secretary/State Chauffeur Dale Hanson.

New Brighton, Minnesota - July 2019

Minnesota State Aerie President Mike Hanson’s charity for his year was the Make A Wish Foundation of Minnesota. He had a goal of $20,000, but he was able to raise a total of $28,422.93. The Grand Aerie gave a grant of $5,000 and the New Brighton Eagles made a gambling donation of $8,000, but overall the balance was raised by the members of New Brighton Eagles #3718. Hanson raised the money by cooking burgers, hosting steak fry’s, live auctions, grab bags, and contributed personal donations during his year as State President. The average wish is about $6,500, so this will help to make more than a few wishes come true.
