The Culpeper Eagles inducted its charter class Jan. 19. Robbie Wilson, Culpeper Eagle President, said that 100 new Aerie members were inducted along with approximately 80 auxiliary members. “Everyone is super excited,” Wilson said. “These guys around here in the Culpeper area have been absolutely fantastic about getting together and finding prospective members. “We are all super excited that we will be able to do some fundraising for the community, we’re community-oriented.” The new Culpeper group needed 75 men and women on both the club and auxiliary side to receive a charter, and within months quickly exceeded that goal. New Market Entertainment paid the first year of dues for new members. “With New Market Entertainment fronting the dues, that really helped telling people that their first year is going to be free,” Wilson said. The Culpeper club is the first new charter in the International Aerie Fraternal Order of Eagles in two years. H. Carl Burnett, Grant Worthy President Grand Aerie Fraternal Order of Eagles, said it’s his goal to expand to new areas and Culpeper is a great example of the passion others have for helping reach that goal. “It means a great deal to have a new area,” Burnett said. “We can bring in new members all day long, but until we start bringing in

new areas we’re not going to grow. This is a sign of that.” He said he wasn’t surprised by the number of new members, as that excitement is common when a new club forms. “We do have a lot of support here,” Burnett said. “The two organizers (Wilson and his wife Mary) did a fantastic job. This has been about a year and a half process for them.” Tom Whittaker, Va. Worth State President and a member of the Fredericksburg Eagles, said that the Eagles raises money for charities through raffles, pull ticket games and “they have a good time doing it.” There are Eagles clubs in 42 states and every province in Canada, with 27 clubs in Virginia. “I had talked about this for years,” Whittaker said. “Every president wants a new club to start during his year. This one started about three years ago, trying to organize one. One of the other presidents tried and we didn’t get a growth.” Whittaker said Fredericksburg is the largest building in the state and they have the second largest membership. They recently increased their membership to 1,700 men and 1,100 women with the help of New Market Entertainment. Wilson has set up an email, culpepereagles@gmail.com for interested parties and the group meets the second and fourth Wednesday at Pepper’s Grill at 7 p.m. “We hope within a year we’ll have our own place,” Wilson said. “We’ve looked all around town already.”
