Hale F.O.E. 4217 Aerie and Auxiliary


The Fraternal order of Eagles Board of Grand Trustees has approved and made a mandatory change to section 2.2 of Aerie and Auxiliary By-Laws that all dues shall be paid to the local Aerie/Auxiliary annually, in advance, as prescribed by the Aerie/Auxiliary By-Laws.  They Shall Become Due and Payable on May 31st of Each Year.

Therefore, at the expiration of your current dues 1/31/16, and to avoid complicated changing of our computer system records for each member, dues will be due and collected as follows and will give you 16 months of membership.  Your card will reflect your regular dues amount so you know what to pay in 2017 and will have an expiration date of 5/31/2017.  This is not a dues increase.  The pro-rated amount is one time only.  Those paid ahead will be contacted separately.
