During the months of October and November, the Eagles Club was collecting non perishable food items to be donated to a local food bank . The result was that we collected 182 pounds of food that was donated to Feed My People. What an awesome amount to be donated at one of the most needed times of the year. We would like to thank the members and community for all of their donations. This demonstrates the true meaning of our motto:"People Helping People".

Do you remember your history and how Thanksgiving came about? We should all remember how the Mayflower came to the New World in 1620 , full of religious seperatist seeking a new home where they could freely practice their faith and a promise of land ownership and prosperity. Their first winter was harsh and they remained on board ship. In March, when they moved ashore, they received a surprising visit from an Abenaki Indian. A few days later, he returned with another Native American, Squanto of the Pawtuxet Tribe.Squanto taught the Pilgrims how to cultivate corn, catch fish, extract sap from the maple trees and avoid poisonous plants. Most importantly, he helped them form an alliance with the Wampanoag Tribe.

In November 1621, after a successful harvest of corn, the Pilgrims organized a celebratory feast and invited the Wampamoag Tribe, which is now known as the first Thanksgiving Feast.History tells us that no matter our faith or beliefs, we can come together for a common cause and be thankful for what we have and to thank those that helped us to get where we are today.

Regardless of what is going on around us today, we should all take the time to thank all for their time, their knowledge, their love and accept them for who they are. Everyone has to capacity to share and be a productive part of our world.

So, on this Thanksgiving day, give Thanks for the blessings that you have, the blessings that you share and remember those who may not be as fortunate as you are. Remember our Service Members serving away from home and their loved ones and keep them safe.

The Chippewa Valley Auxiliary and Aerie would like to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving.

Did you know that the calendar is full of months, weeks and days that raise awareness for a variety of health issues and conditions? We are all familiar with Movember to raise awareness of Prostate Cancer. But did you also know that November is National Alzheimer's Disease Month? In 1983, President Ronald Reagan designated November as National Alzheimer's Disease Month. At that time, fewer than 2 million people were affected by this deadly disease, which has now soared to over 5.4 million. Just like Breast Cancer month uses the color pink, Alzheimer's Disease Awareness and Caregivers Month uses the color purple. Now, I know all of us diehard Packer Fans may be hesitant to wear the color purple for obvious reasons, but here is your chance to raise awareness about this debilitating disease.

The Fraternal Order of Eagles history of raising funds for Alzheimer's dates back to 1985 when the Golden Eagle funds were used to help find a cure was approved. The Maynard " Blackie" Floyd Alzheimer's Fund, A Past Grand Worthy President, who served as the International Charity Director for many years, was created after increased demand for grants for Alzheimer's research.

For those of us that are directly affected by this disease and have loved ones suffering,we ask you to join all of us to help raise awareness and find a cure for this debilitating disease. If an opportunity arises for a Charitable event for Alzheimer's in your area, be proud to participate and be proud to wear that purple.

The leaves are turning and things are heating up at the Eagles Club. The Meat Raffles are in full swing every Thursday evening at 6:30 and Trivia has also started, every second Friday of the month. So, come out and join us. Every Meat Raffle is for a special project whether it be for an Eagle Charity or a local charity, the more we have to participate, the more we can give.

Once again this year, we will be shopping for 100 kids for Christmas is for Children. This is a wonderful program that brings joy to the less fortunate children in the Chippewa Valley by providing them gifts for the Holiday Season. Listen to B95 to learn how you also can sponsor a child or children and be part of this program. The Eagles Club is also a drop off point for the gifts and where the party/pickup will be for the gifts. If you like to shop and wrap gifts, we welcome all who can help. We will be shopping on Tuesday, November 29th, meeting at the Hallie Walmart at 6 PM, wrapping on Tuesday, December 6th at 6:30 pm at the Club. The Party for the kids to come pick up their gifts will be Tuesday, December 13th.

If you would like to sponsor a child, email: ChristmasisforChildren@iHeartMedia.com.

We are extremely proud to announce that this year’s Annual Block Party raised $16,000.00 for the VFW Unmet Needs Program. It took a lot of work and volunteers to be able to make such a large donation to a program that will help our local Vets. We Thank each and every one who helped in any way to make this happen.

Other activities to start this winter will be Friday Night Shuffle Board/Game Night. Get a team together and join us in the Eagles Nest for fun and fellowship. Every third Saturday of the month will be card day at the club. Do you like to play Smear or Texas Hold’em? We will have several tables going during the afternoons. Don’t know how to play? We will be glad to teach you. The games will start at 1 Pm.

Now that football season is in full swing, Tailgate parties are back in the Outback. For as long as the weather permits, we will be hosting the game in the Outback Bar. Once it gets too cold, we will be downstairs in the Eagles Nest. You can sign up to bartend a game. The signup sheet is on the Members Bulletin Board by the Men’s room in the Club. All that is required is to bring a dessert, Karl will supply the halftime meal.

Mark your calendars, the Eagles Christmas Party will be held on Saturday, January 7, 2017. The meal this year will be Steak and Shrimp. We will have a gift exchange for those who wish to participate. As the day gets near, more information will be available.

On October 25th, the Chippewa Valley Fraternal Order of Eagles was very proud to present the VFW Unmet Needs Program with a check for $16,000.00, the proceeds from the 2nd Annual Hallie Block Party that took place on September 10, 2016. This years Party featured the raffle of a Cam-Am 4 Wheeler and Trailer as the top prize. The day was filled with many activities from a kickball tournament, dunk tank, climbing wall, silent auction, basket raffles, music ,food and drink. These funds will come right back to the Chippewa Valley to service our local vets and their families. Without the hard work of the Community and our members, this donation would not have been possible.
