The Fraternal Order of Eagles in Oak Ridge has its homecoming tonight (Friday, August 23), and visitors are welcome.
The Eagles have rebuilt after a fire on Oak Ridge Turnpike in 2016 and are now doing a membership drive.
“Our building may have burned three years ago, but our new building is done and we are ready for more members,” an announcement said.
The Homecoming tonight will feature food starting at 6:30 p.m. until it’s gone. There will be an auction at 7:30 p.m. with bars signs, mirrors, and other items.
A band, Downtown Claxton, will perform after the auction, the announcement said.
Visitors are welcome, the announcement said. Visitors have to be signed in by a member, and the Eagles are doing a membership drive, the announcement said.
The Fraternal Order of Eagles is an international nonprofit organization uniting fraternally in the spirit of liberty, truth, justice, and equality, to make human life more desirable by lessening its ills and promoting peace, prosperity, gladness, and hope, the announcement said.
The F.O.E. donates more than $10 million a year to local communities, fundraisers, charities, and more. As part of its philosophy, the F.O.E. gives back 100 percent of funds raised in the form of grants. Fundraisers are conducted for eight major charities, including kidney, heart, diabetes, cancer and spinal cord injury funds, a children’s fund, memorial foundation, and the Golden Eagle Fund.
“We also help on the local level from Our Aerie here,” the announcement said.
