November Aerie News


 Aerie President’s Message: Welcome to our new members and happy November to all our members and volunteers.  November is going to be a busy month for us.  We have several events coming up so check your newsletter for them.


We are in need of a new “Wimpy” burger crew for this year.  There will be some help from the past Wimpy crew.


We are also in need of a person to schedule the Prep teams for the fish fry.


Our club is based on Volunteers helping with all of the events of the club.  Volunteering can be a great opportunity, for new members to get to know your Aerie.


We cannot afford to lose any part of our services. It is your Aerie, so come on out and give a helping hand. President:  Lee Rice

GUN RAFFLE - Just a reminder!  Mail back your ticket stubs and money or drop them off at the club before the drawing date of Saturday, November 8, 2014. The drawing will be held at 8 p.m. that evening. The ticket reads 7 p.m., which was a typo. The actual license states 8 p.m. Norms Reuben's will be available prior to the drawing, starting at 3 p.m. and go until 7 p.m. or sold out. Come on down early and have some fun and good food while we wait for the drawing. It's always a good time! And thank you for supporting YOUR club! Dennis Jenkins & Jim Ingram, Co-Chairmen

 NEEDED: Wimpys Crew:


 It is with a sad heart, and lots of regret that we have decided to give Wimpys up as a weekly adventure.  Due to family responsibilities, and the loss of some very special crew members, we will not be doing Wimpys this year.  Many Thanks for all your support over the years and special thanks to Jan, Pat, Bud, Tom & Paula, Doris, Cindy, Tommy, Cricket, Marie Brown (past crew member) and anyone else that helped us.  Thanks for your support.  Karen Westcott


The Aerie is hosting a fundraiser to help member Jeff Hill.  Jeff has been in Beaumont Hospital in Royal Oak, MI for several weeks and is currently unable to work.  He is receiving therapy to learn to walk and talk but needs some help to pay for basic living expenses.  For those of you who know Jeff, you know that he is a very hard worker, and he does support and help our Aerie whenever we need him.  On Thursday, November 6th, the Aerie is having an Open Donation Dinner to raise money for Jeff.  Food will be brats, kielbasa, knockwurst, sauerkraut, potato chips, pickle spear, and all the trimmings for any donation of your choice.  Please plan to support Jeff at the Aerie on November 6th from 4-7 pm or until gone, have a nice dinner, and help a fellow Eagle.  Kay Tilley, Auxiliary President
