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.
