Last night, January 7th, was the Eagles Annual Christmas Party, where members and non members get together for a great meal, conversation and a fun gift exchange. However this year, we added a new item which we hope to continue each year. As a group, we receive many Thank You's for the charity work we do for the community. This year, we decided to start recognizing the individual efforts our fellow members with the- Chippewa Valley Fraternal Order of Eagles Member Service Recognition Award. Our inaugural recepients are two couples that spent many years giving their time and effort to keep our bingo program going. Brent and Wendy Jaenke took over the reins many years ago from the then older members who wanted a break. Debbie Smith was operating the Ladies bingo at the time the Auxiliary decided to drop their bingo and partner with the men. Her husband Larry also came along to help split the Check writing duties with the Jaenke's. A few years ago, our Club decided to take a break from bingo but we never forgot the volunteer efforts the Jaenke's and Smith's did to keep our bingo going for so many years. So ,it was very fitting that we recognize these couples as our first recepients. Congratulations Brent & Wendy and Larry & Debbie. The plaque will be under permanent display in the bar.
