The Fraternal Order of Eagles is an international non-profit organization uniting fraternally in the spirit of liberty, truth, justice, and equality, to make human life more desirable by lessening its ills and promoting peace, prosperity, gladness and hope
The F.O.E. was founded in February, 1898 by six theatre owners gathered in a Seattle shipyard to discuss a musician's strike. After addressing the matter, they agreed to "bury the hatchet" and form "The Order of Good Things." As numbers grew, members selected the Bald Eagle as the official emblem and changed the name to "The Fraternal Order of Eagles". The women's auxiliary traces its roots to 1927.
F.O.E. membership exceeds 850,000, with more than 1,400 local Aeries in the U.S. and Canada. Women's auxiliaries total more than 1,300, with more than 250,000 members. Members are recruited by other members and must be sponsored by two members before the membership process begins.
Hallcrest Eagles Aerie #4497 is a smoking and drinking establishment. Members are allowed to invite guests to join them while visiting the club.
Hallcrest Eagles has weekly scheduled events including live entertainment and dinners.
The Aerie also has special events throughout the month and year as fundraisers for the club and for charity.
Getting together for some fun in the sun is always nice, too!
