NEWSLETTER Aerie #4217  

 Worthy President’s Message:   Our club has a list of “house rules”, which are posted on the bulletin board by the popcorn machine.

The announcement of one of these rules is being told at some of the events. This rule states that a non-member living within 25 miles of the club can only come in 3 times as a guest of a member and must join the club to continue access. The spouse of Aerie members is an exception but must be signed in as a guest if they are not auxiliary members.

Members pay their dues to help support and enjoy the benefits and privileges of our GREAT CLUB.

My wish and hope for ALL, is to enjoy and celebrate the splendor of this Holiday SeasonWorthy President, Raymond Rasch    (

As we come to the end of the year, we would like to thank all our volunteers for all they have done to help the club.  From the summer bashes to the pig roast, MSU vs U of M game, Halloween party and the gun raffle which was the best we ever did.  Big Thanks to all who help on the fish fry and Monday dinners. Without our volunteers our club could not function.  Thanks again.  Wishing you and your family a blessed holiday.  May God bless everyone and continue to bless our club.  Your Board of Trustees (B.O.T.)


Brr, Did you forget to take your coat, hoodie, or jacket?  Check the hooks by Secretaries offices for your lost ones.  And don’t leave your coat behind in this season of winter.

Weather changes constantly this time of year.  Be sure to be prepared.

Seniors, store up extra food, have your wood or propane filled.  If you need help let someone know.

In the event of bad weather, or predicted bad weather, call the club to be sure it’s open before heading to the Eagles club



As the year draws to a close, it is time to thank the many officers of the Aerie.  Without their support and dedication, there would be no club.  The Aerie has the financial responsibility to make sure the lights are on, the heat is paid for, the food is bought, taxes and insurance are paid, the bar is stocked and ready for your enjoyment. Thank you to all the trustees, President, Secretary for your many hours of donated time.  May you have a blessed year. Editor, Marie Rasch
