NEWSLETTER Aerie #4217  


Worthy President: I have enjoyed serving as YOUR President this past term.

Our Aerie becomes more robust as the warmer weather brings  members back to our area. Bartenders and Trustees work hard to please members. Take notice of our events as these are offered for your participation.

All members are initiated, and officers take an oath, as an obligation and pledge, that we will abide by and obey the laws, rules, and regulations, of the Grand Aerie and the Local Aerie. These fall under the Statutes, By-Laws, and House Rules.

House Rules are posted on the Cork board by the popcorn machine and play an integral part in policy and the conduct of members and non-members on club premises.

# 5. Guests may be signed in ONLY (3) times if living within a 30 mile radius.

# 30. Our State Law Gaming License states we allow non-members entrance to our club to play Keno, Charity Games, and Queen of Diamonds. They are NOT allowed to participate in Social activities that paid up members enjoy.

#8 – Delinquent members can NOT be signed in. They can NOT enjoy social room activities until they have paid their dues and receive their official receipt.

# 27 – The constitution, by-laws, and house rules will always be enforced on the Aerie premises.

My hope is that we can ALL find Harmony and Happiness in OUR Aerie with each other, and Aerie #4217 prospers into the future.   Aerie #4217 Worthy President, Ray Rasch (
