Happy ay! s’ D June r e h t a F From Your Aerie President


Thank to all for a great installation! Brothers and Sisters, I would like to extend a hearty thank you to everyone who attended the installation of officers last month. It was wonderful to see everyone here! Thanks to Penny for the decorations and support. Thanks for being such a great partner in crime. I couldn’t hope for a better counterpart for the next year. Thanks to all the volunteers who helped with the dinner service. It was great to be able to sit on the sidelines with my family for once! The dinner was delicious and was a wonderful conclusion to the evening. The biggest thank you of all goes to my family. If it weren’t for their support and love, and especially their approval, I would not be able to do what I do here. They are a fantastic set of gals whom I love very much.

COMING EVENTS Here’s a couple of reminders about our upcoming events. Our first meeting will be held June 2 and the second on the 23rd. The State Eagles Convention will be June 17-19 in Yakima. Also, mark your calendars with our regular events: • Sunday breakfasts • Tuesday Bingo • Texas Hold'em Tournaments • Friday and Saturday nights bands I am looking forward to the next year and all the teamwork it will take to make it successful! — With great appreciation for your support, Norman Kalles, Worthy President P.S. — Don’t forget Father’s Day is coming on Sunday, June 20.

Dues going up July 1

Save some dough and pay your dues while low At the regular Aerie meeting on May 5 at the third and final reading of proposed by-law changes, the members present voted to raise the Aerie dues from $36 to $42. This raise will go into effect after the Grand Aerie approves the changes. As it stands right now, that will probably be about July 1. You can pay as many years in advance at the old rate of $36 if you pay before the raise goes into effect. If you want to “beat the raise,” you can pay $72 for two years, $108 for three years, $144 for four years and so on. Just remember, we have to get the dues before July 1. In other news in the Secretary’s office, please welcome Kathy Needham. She is taking the place of Judy Skinner who decided she wants to do some traveling this summer. Judy was great to work with and we wish her the best. Say Hi to Kathy who will be working on Tuesdays and Fridays. — Leonard Blakely, Aerie Secretary

Last month we all gathered at the summer home of Yvonne and Gordy Anderson in Winthrop. We were there May 6-9, followed by four days at Pearrygin Lake State Park. At Pearrygin we put on a fishing derby for three days to see who can catch the biggest fish. Fun, laughter, good food and great company is always our main ingredients that keeps our group strong. May 27-31 found a lot of us in Randle/Packwood for the huge city-wide junk sale. (Did I say junk?!! I really meant to say garage sale. . . bad girl Sheron!) Some of us stayed at the Shady Firs Campgrounds, others were at the K & M Park, and some were up at new Tower Rock. But we all got together for a potluck at the Shady Firs. As long as the rain stays away, we always have a great time seeing who got the bargain of the year.

Flag Day Monday June 14

Huge turnout for our first ever BBQ Sunday, May 16 turned out to be a L-O-N-G day for most of the volunteers and the cooks for our First Annual Babyback BBQ Rib Cook-Off and Dinner. There were 16 teams competing, with most arriving before 6 a.m. to get their ribs going. The winners were declared at 5:15 p.m. with Scott Cleese’s Team 14 from the Federal Way area taking the $400 and first place trophy home. Second place and $200 went to team “Tweedle Dee & Dumb” — Paul Thomas and Dale Willis. Third place and $100 went to Bob Hobert BBQ. The People’s Choice Award went to Team 12, Culley’s Kitchen, with Carl Sandel as head cook. All his people were reeling in votes with their tables full of hors d’oeuvres. Carl also played a big part at getting most of the gifts for our raffle. Thanks Carl! I would like to thank all the volunteers for helping make this day a huge success. I believe everyone had a good time. I also believe the barbecue will be much bigger next year!

From your Madam President

Pigs will fly & so will I We have started another new Auxiliary year and pigs will be flying. I am your new Auxiliary Madam President for 2010-2011. I am very excited to begin this new adventure and look forward to meeting lots of new people. New Aerie President Norm Kalles and I are excited about working together as a team and having lots of fun!! Our meetings are on the second and fourth Thursdays of the month at 7:30 p.m. We would love to see new faces at the meetings. The State Eagles Convention in Yakima will be June 17-19. We have three members from our club running for state offices: Mark Crouchet for State Inside Guard, Ellen Blakely for State Treasurer, and Shelia Wilson for State Conductor. Good Luck to all of them. We hope to see our sisters over there to support Ellen and Shelia. I would like to thank all of the officers for supporting me. I could not do this without all of them and their help. — Madam President, Penny Fiedler “We are all here on earth to help others; what on earth the others are here for, I don’t know!”

We have another event coming up in July. Mark your calendars! Our annual Club Picnic (Pat Revard, where are you?) will be held on the weekend of July 24 and 25 at the Swiss Park in Bonney Lake again. The club will be closed both Saturday and Sunday that weekend, so plan on camping out if you can. We will have more information in next month’s newsletter. — Bill Bostwick, Trustee

Jonas’ ride to freedom! Back when the Eagles started, new members had to ride a goat at initiation. We keep telling our members they have to “ride the goat,” so Worthy President Jonas White donated one to the Aerie for their 72nd Anniversary.

There’s plenty to offer this summer Wow, we are already in the sixth month of 2010! My, how time flies. Starting on Monday, June 7, we will have a new menu to offer. We will still have chicken, but we have added more items. Don’t forget to mark your calendars for the Aerie Picnic on July 24. That’s a Saturday this year. The club will be closed the 24 and 25. Anybody wishing to volunteer should contact Loni at (253) 845-5021. She will put you with the chairman. Mark your calendars for August 8, the Car Show! How about that new dining room carpet and the linoleum? The room looks totally different. — Loni, Club Manager
