It was actually the only place to get out of the rain. O. The only problem was when they dismantled the float. and my mom said. because I realize it was hilarious.) SISTER MAUREEN LITTLE: I thought about this and didn’t question it. Our Auxiliary had set up and performed a melodrama twice a day. We put them on her float. and she just happened to have a unicorn head for me to wear. E. and drove with them to National Convention. God bless all of you. She will be missed but not forgotten for all of those hearts she touched. O. made the mermaids. She accepted.

SISTER MAUREEN LITTLE: I often wondered what the person who found them thought. and they had four children. I threw them in the Dumpster. (Laughter. like this weather. very dry and very hot. Needless to say. I wrote a funny poem for her about her likes and dislikes regarding food. after a big laugh. My next encounter with her was. Over the years she has served as President of Spokane. She had many honors in her Eagle life. in 1927. I’m sure all of us feel privileged to have had the opportunity to know and love Jean. This evening resulted in a friendship which lasted for 47 years. it was really stifling. She then married Ralph Hill. After her year as Grand Madam President. especially to all of us that live on the coast that it was. I was terrified but Lena soon put me at ease with her easy‑going approach to the evening.

Their home is always open to any Eagle Sister or Brother who was passing through or needed a bed or an overnight stay. but she would tell us anything if we asked. you can’t take mine with you.

In closing. you definitely heard from her. snowmobiling and enjoying the outdoors. soft person. and gentle you’re sleeping. I would like to leave you with these thoughts from our Auxiliary Ritual which I have modified a bit. If he took a dislike to you. her fundraising for Eagle Valley was the largest that was ever raised. 2015. I don’t know. she always went with me to introduce me at my interviews with the nominating committee. Her knowledge of the Washington State Eagles history was enormous and very detailed as to time. She made cookies every year for the Past Grands and brought them along. an act of congress to change it and sometimes it didn’t change. but I made it to Grand Madam President. Washington and spent much time fishing. When I served as Grand Madam President. we talked about many things. In my private time with Lena. which is composed. After they gave up the lake house.

If her mind was made up on a subject or situation. Our beloved Sister has now become part of that history. she was trying to bribe them because she always brought them cookies. We often referred to him as Rotten Ralph. so it’s too bad we didn’t have those sneaky record’s they have now. you are in his keeping. rare and divine. and didn’t stay with Lena. which we all crabbed about.) PAST GRAND MADAM PRESIDENT PAT MORTON: He and Lena lived on a lake near Newport. No one else could have any until Jerry had his.

and he believed in his country. You did a whole lot better than I did. so I don’t think Chuck refused to sing because he couldn’t sing. And I thought Chuck’s refusal to sing was for the same reason as mine ‑‑ because he couldn’t sing.) PAST GRAND MADAM PRESIDENT LINDA HEFFNER: We will surely miss these three Sisters. remember him as a good basic man. He did what he thought he had to do. of the Brothers and Sisters here. That was something he really wanted. and we got to know each other. I think he did it because he is just that private person that didn’t want to do that. He did that. He had worked on a farm. and one of the things that we had in common was. and it happened. And at one time that band had been booked for three years in advance. from Fredericksburg 4123 for the purposes of a eulogy for our Brother Chuck. you know. No. You know. we don’t sing. a very well‑known band in those parts. family farm. He enjoyed life. and he believed in this organization. as the years passed. and they would all try and get us to sing. who enjoyed and believed in this fraternal organization but also believed in living life to its fullest. I’m taking my paper with me this time. I don’t have any. but never talked a whole lot about himself. He would talk to you about a lot of things. and we shared some time. and we talked a bit. sometimes in the evenings they would have a little get‑together with some karaoke around the Aeries or whatever as we traveled in the Aeries. You didn’t find out much about Chuck. you know. so I would say to you when you remember Chuck. was on the Ritual. the Aerie had a great loss this past year with our Grand Worthy President Chuck Lang. and he was one of those people that was like that. and went with his family to work other farms far .) GRAND WORTHY PRESIDENT‑ELECT JERRY SULLIVAN: Found out when we got to Harvey. North Dakota for his funeral that Chuck had been a member of a band for many years.

Brothers and Sisters.) GRAND WORTHY PRESIDENT‑ELECT JERRY SULLIVAN: I promise not to take your papers. He enjoyed the comradery of the Fraternal Order of Eagles. He believed in his family. You know. some of the other guys would have a few beers and decide they had enough nerve. And he was a strong believer with those Midwest beliefs. no. we spent a lot of time trying to get advanced and being dropped and being moved back and going through all the things that we need to go and do to get where we’re at today. He did what he wanted to do. One of his great desires was to be Grand Worthy President. 2016 What can I say? (Laughter. So when we went to his funeral in the Dakotas. I think one of his greatest joys as I watched him was the night he had the ability to be able to share that with his two grandsons. I would tell you that. but Chuck and I was always. he was pretty basic. but one thing I found with Chuck was that he did not talk much about his own personal life. and they would go ahead. And. and he didn’t. our Grand Worthy President‑Elect. (Laughter. He would fight over one of the three. But in addition to them. and we had a lot of frustrations. That was the highlight for him. the two people who always refused was Chuck and myself. like Jean Rott for one. He would. but he didn’t do what he didn’t want to do.42 July 17. Well. We would like to change our program a little and present to you Brother Jerry Sullivan. and I was on some of the committees. I guess there’s some people here that will probably do a better job.

Truly Mother is the most precious word in any language. the petals of a wayside rose will lure away a multitude of woes.) (All seated. will bring no smile to lips forever chilled. Remember: The flowers that are put upon her breast. and build into the lives of our beloved.

48 July 17, 2016
And, if they are among the slain, our hearts will coffin the beloved body and our souls will
keep the steadfast vigil of a deathless love.
It is fitting that the Fraternity whose ideals we are pledged to foster has chosen Memorial
Day to honor the thousands of Eagles who gave their lives for our Country. In these exercises, the
Auxiliary plays an active part.
Each Memorial Day, we strive to bring into this community the very spirit of the services held
at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.
We do not know the eminence of his birth, but we do know the glory of his death.
So granite walls guard eternally the body of this patriot who served, and died. Whether he was
Catholic or Protestant or Jew; native‑born or an adopted son ‑‑ is not of record.
Whether he came from a humble home or from one of wealth; from a place where inland rivers
flow or from one which an ocean laves ‑‑ no one knows.
But each mother whose son’s name is marked on our country’s roster Place of Burial Unknown,
may, with equal justice, claim as her own the patriot that sleeps in the sacred tomb.
Every mother who gave a life for the Flag has a right to share in the glory that hallows that
mausoleum.
Every woman in whose heart the flames of patriotism glow is ever mindful of the sacrifices
that gave us our glorious heritage.
Sisters, let us here highly resolve that our dead shall not have died in vain.
Madam Conductor, you will escort the candidates to the station of the Madam Chaplain.
MADAM CONDUCTOR CATHY WILCOXEN: This station is dedicated to God.
MADAM CHAPLAIN DEBBIE JUSTICE: My Sisters, do you really wish to serve God?
Then hearken to this parable ‑‑ this tale from Araby.
Once upon a time a date merchant, pious and poor, lay dying. He sent for his two daughters,
gave them equally of his scanty savings, blessed them and said, live so that when you die, the poor,
the sick, the outcast will mourn the passing of a friend.
The elder daughter dealt in precious stones and in time became very rich.
But, as she added to her wealth, she gave less and less to the needy, until her name was a
byword, jeered and despised.
The younger daughter sold dates. She worked many hours for little pay. Yet each day she laid
by a coin that was ever ready to serve the unfortunate.
In time her name was spoken softly by scores of those made happier because she lived.
Years piled on years, and then came the final Call. Together, the rich daughter and the poor
one stood at the Judgment seat.
The Judge spake: For each of you there is a dwelling according to your desserts.
A radiant Being led them from the light and warmth into a valley of fog and gloom.
Under the drippings of an evil rock was a hut, wretched beyond words.
Humbly, the date‑seller said, this hovel is mine. Nay, said the Guide, your sister here abides.
Every crust she denied the hungry; every sneer she gave the sick; every burden she laid upon the
helpless ‑‑ is in this wicked place.
Then to a glorious spot where flowers lived and birds found happiness, the Being led the
humble one, and stopped before a mansion the like of which our Earth has never seen.
And this is yours, the Presence said. The bread that you denied yourself; the words with which
you heartened the despairing; the hours you spent with those in grief ‑‑ all are recorded here.
The deeds you wrought in life have been assembled by God’s love into this mansion. It is
yours: Verily, it is YOU. Thus ends this parable from Araby.
My Sisters, share the grief of those who sorrow; be a friend to the friendless; visit the sick; and
in so doing, the spirit that is in you will have glorified God.
Madam Conductor, you will escort the candidates to the station of the Madam President.
MADAM CONDUCTOR CATHY WILCOXEN: This is the station of Loyalty.
MADAM PRESIDENT BECKY WILSON: My Sisters, there is a sacred legend that said

Fraternal Order of Eagles 49
after God created first woman, he blessed her with the precious attribute ‑‑ loyalty. It is a compound
of love, devotion and unselfishness.
The woman that is most despised is the one that is disloyal. In her heart, the hallowed touch
of friends and home awakes no throb of happiness.
In her mind, the thought of Country strikes no spark of patriotism. In her soul, the contemplation
of a loving God begets no thrill of adoration.
She is indeed the loneliest creature in all the world.
Madam Conductor, let us now, in the closing moments of this initiation, invite all here to
contemplate our common lot, so that we may humbly stand before God and reflect upon the lectures
our officers have, from their hearts, so sincerely given.
MADAM CONDUCTOR CATHY WILCOXEN: No mortal has ever had enough riches,
honor and wisdom, when death ended his career.
The eye is never satisfied with seeing; endless are the desires of the heart.
Man devises new schemes on the graves of a thousand disappointed hopes.
Discontent abides in the palace and in the hut, rankling alike in the breast of prince and pauper.
Death finally terminates the combat; grief and joy, success and failure, all are ended.
Like a child falling asleep over his toys, man loosens his grasp when death overtakes him.
The master and servant, the rich and poor, the strong and the feeble, the wise and the simple,
all are equal in death.
The grave levels all distinctions, and makes the whole world akin.
MADAM PRESIDENT BECKY WILSON: My Sisters, for such you now are, if you wish
to enter an Auxiliary room when a meeting is in session, present your official receipt to the Madam
Outside Guard, and then to the Madam Inside Guard, who will respond to your rap and admit you to
the Auxiliary.
Advance to the Altar keeping to the outside of the flag. When you reach the flag, stop and give
the salutation sign, then step to the Altar, give the salutation sign to the Madam President, who will
recognize you. You will then be seated.
The salutation sign is made by placing your right hand over your heart, thumb and fingers
being joined.
This sign is also used when members rise to address the Madam President, when crossing the
room or when passing the Flag.
The Madam President will always acknowledge the salutation sign by a wave of her right
hand.
If at any time you wish to leave while an Auxiliary is in session, go to the Altar, salute the
Madam President, and after your salutation has been acknowledged, quietly leave the room.
The voting sign is made by raising your right hand, palm outward, the thumb and fingers being
joined and extended upward.
If at any time you wish to make known your membership in this Auxiliary to any Sister,
present your official receipt, showing your dues paid beyond the date of presentation.
No other evidence in good standing is accepted.
I now declare that you are a member of Queen City Eagles, Auxiliary Number 3934 and as
such, you’re entitled to share in its benefits, privileges and responsibility.
The gavel is a symbol of authority. Two raps summon the Auxiliary to order.
(Rap, rap.)
One rap brings the Auxiliary to their feet or seats them when standing.
(Rap.)
(All rise.)
MADAM PRESIDENT BECKY WILSON: Madam Conductor, let the Sisters face the
Altar.
Officers and members of the Queen City Eagles Auxiliary Number 3934, Fraternal Order of
Eagles, I’m happy to present our new Sisters. Please greet them with salutation sign.

50 July 17, 2016
(All members of the Auxiliary gave the salutation sign.)
MADAM PRESIDENT BECKY WILSON: Madam Conductor, please direct our Sisters to
a seat in the Auxiliary.
(Rap.)
(Applause.)
GRAND MADAM PRESIDENT‑ELECT JUDY JOHNSON: At this time it gives me
pleasure to introduce, Past Grand Madam President, Bettie Clark, for some inspirational words that
we can all learn from. She is also our International Chairman for the Diabetic Research Center.
PAST GRAND MADAM PRESIDENT BETTIE CLARK: Thank you. Good afternoon,
Sisters.
THE SISTERS: Good afternoon.
PAST GRAND MADAM PRESIDENT BETTIE CLARK: I would have hoped that we
would have some new Sisters here today but since we don’t, we’ll use this time as a crash course and
review the basic process to bringing in a new member to our Sisterhood.
It all starts with two basic tools. A pen (Indicating.) Use this to get your applicant’s signature
on the second basic tool, an application (Indicating.)
The rest depends on your ability to sell, first yourself, and, second, the product, your Auxiliary
and the Fraternal Order of Eagles.
In today’s world, the average person is going to want to know what our organization can do for
them, not like it used to be. We have to be prepared to tell them.
As a member of your local Auxiliary, you are the best qualified to do that. It should include
the facts that we work hard to help those less fortunate, and we have a lot of fun while we’re doing
it. From there, you fill‑in the blanks.
The next step is to get her interviewed. A good interviewing committee will find out her
personal wants and needs and hopefully find out what would be a good fit for her on a committee or
maybe even sometime in the future become an officer.
You are encouraged to show your support by sitting with her for this interview.
Assuming she is approved for membership, you need to make sure that she is there for the first
initiation and make every effort to go with her to that meeting as well.
During our beautiful initiatory ceremony, she will be escorted to four stations where she will
receive meaningful lectures and hear from the, for the first time the true meanings of our purpose.
Home is our first station. Our home is a very special place to each one of us. Our Aerie home
is our home away from home, and it should be special too.
As an Eagle family, we work together for the betterment of our community and for all of
mankind.
Next, she will stay, stand at the station of our country. Our country, truly best are we among
all the nations of the world. Here our birthright gives us the liberty to worship God and the freedom
to live a useful life.
Now, she advances to the station dedicated to God, and she learns that if we really wish to
serve God, we should live our lives so that when we die, the poor, the sick, the outcast will mourn the
passing of a friend.
As Sisters, we share the grief of those that sorrow, and we are a friend to the friendless, and we
do not fail to visit the sick.
By becoming our Sister and doing these things, the spirit that is in you will glorify God.
Next we arrive to the station of loyalty. There is a sacred legend that says that after God had
created the first woman, he blessed her with a precious attribute, loyalty. It is a compound of love,
devotion and unselfishness.
No woman is more despised than one that is disloyal. She is indeed the loneliest creature in all
the world. Let us all strive to be loyal to our cause. Let us all strive to make our Aerie home a haven,
places where we enjoy working to benefit others.
Let us all strive to help restore our country to its greatness. The best that it can be. Our

Fraternal Order of Eagles 51
country, that so many men and women have given their lives to help us remain free.
Sisters, let us here highly resolve that our dead shall not have died in vain, and finally and most
importantly, we address our commitment to our God.
When the years have piled on years, and the final call comes, the rich and the poor will stand
at the judgment seat.
The rich that have denied the hungry, sneered the sick and the burdened that they have laid on
the helpless will be in a place wrecked beyond words.
The poor and the humble that have denied themselves bread, the words with which they
harkened the despairing and the hours they pass on those in grief all are recorded and have been
assembled by God’s love into a mansion, the likes to which our earth has never seen.
Sisters, let us all become the humble ones, and let the spirit that is in us glorify God. Thank
you.
(Applause.)
GRAND MADAM PRESIDENT‑ELECT JUDY JOHNSON: Before going to the closing,

GRAND MADAM PRESIDENT‑ELECT JUDY JOHNSON: Okay. We will now go into
the closing.
MADAM PRESIDENT BECKY WILSON: My Sisters, as we have finished the business of
the session, we will close with prayer.
MADAM CHAPLAIN DEBBIE JUSTICE: Our Father, graciously favor the acts of this
Auxiliary. May the friendships here formed received thy blessings may the comfort of thy presence
be in our homes; may our country lead in righteousness all the nations of the earth. Thine be the
glory. Amen.
THE DELEGATES: Amen.
MADAM PRESIDENT BECKY WILSON: Junior Madam President, you may advance to
the Altar.
(The Junior Madam President goes to the Altar.)
MADAM PRESIDENT BECKY WILSON: What maxim points the way to happiness?
JUNIOR PAST MADAM PRESIDENT BECKY WILSON: The golden hours that we may
spend on self are lost, but those we lend to bring a smile where none has been, makes the whole world
happy and akin.
MADAM PRESIDENT BECKY WILSON: Madam Vice‑President, you may advance to
the Altar.
(The Madam Vice‑President goes to the Altar.)
MADAM PRESIDENT BECKY WILSON: My Sisters, what pledge do we give before the
gavel falls?
ALL MEMBERS: We will strive unselfishly to live for Home, for Country and for God.
MADAM PRESIDENT BECKY WILSON: I now declare this session of Queen City

52 July 17, 2016
Auxiliary 3934 closed until next July unless notified to our members.

GRAND MADAM PRESIDENT‑ELECT JUDY JOHNSON: Thank you, Ladies. That

DRC is having a global impact in terms of the impact that we are making in diabetes research. so just in the last month. And so over the years since we have been leading the diabetes center. was someone that we also brought in to the Diabetes Research Center. So I just got a few little. So you remember walking through the DRC. that was me. Dr. At the time he hadn’t published the paper yet. The animals will look at the piece of sugar and walk away and will choose the healthy choices. Robillard. It was empty. And when I was putting together this picture I was trying to get as many faces into the eagle as possible. ABEL: So I’ll run through about four or five other members of the diabetes center.

ABEL: Great. to the Hall of Fame for. (Applause. we’re doing so well. Can you advance to the next slide. (Applause. just to let you know that. ABEL: ‑‑ help yourselves so. O. So let me ‑‑ hang on. you know. I can guarantee you that. a few of the articles that mention the F. to say. so what was also very amazing was that when this paper was published. (Applause.Monday Meeting DR. you know. we are going to have a wonderful opportunity to bring the brightest and best individuals to the University of Iowa to do research. you know what they’re working on. so we are full. and Matt came to the convention last year. medicine and research. and basically threw everybody I could throw on this slide. who is shown here. the Telegraph in England and a bunch of other newspapers all over the world pick up the story and ran with it. so Fortune Magazine. . so I gave up. and you saw the building. So how many of you were in Iowa two years ago at the ribbon cutting? Let me see your hands. maybe you’ve got to build us another building so stay tuned and see what happens. so I want to personally thank you for giving me this wonderful opportunity. for the heart to tell the body to either make more fat or make less fat depending on what’s going on. and if I walk in here with some doughnuts. at least one or two of you may come over and. the world’s press took off with this. the heart ‑‑ which clearly is an important organ and obviously people of diabetes do die of heart attacks and things like that ‑‑ he’s now shown the heart also talks to the fat. ABEL: Okay. So Chad Grueter.) DR. ABEL: Can I have the next slide. you run into these guys. perfect.) DR.) DR. E. So this is Matt Potthoff. (Applause. I think this should work. O. the F. Really just to introduce them you. but it’s not. E. so this is really very important because I think many people with diabetes struggles with just simple things like food choices. and so he’s figured out a way to actually. ABEL: So that’s equivalent in effect. and what Chad has shown is that. you know. There were ‑‑ you know. I think ‑‑ oh. he publishes the paper that he’s figured out this hormone that we all make in our liver that actually when you give it ‑‑ and this is working in animals right now. you know.60 July 18. you know. DRC based on his discovery. please? Oh. some brief summaries of some of the work that’s happening in the Diabetes Research Center so you can have a flavor for some of the things that we’ve been doing over the last year or so since I had the chance to speak with you last. ABEL: And so I’ve now began talking to Dr. you know. What I’d like to do is just give you a little. the New York Post. so that when you come visit us in Iowa.) DR. nice and brand new and everything.) DR. that really. honestly wouldn’t have happened if I didn’t take the opportunity to move to Iowa to lead the DRC.

an apple a day keeps the doctor away. and then it says. everybody has a smart phone. little things that you put on your wrist to monitor your steps. I don’t know. second or third grade.) DR. so he could actually see how much you are walking. Here’s what I’m going to do. again. right. you know. So if you think about it. whose work is really going to help us to understand how best to treat blood pressure better in people with diabetes. what makes fat cells grow. because it’s already available but nobody actually knew and figured out that it would have such a powerful effect on diabetes and its complications. . Rahmouni. we were all finished at one point. and some people say. and then you know. You know. actually got a pilot grant three years ago from the Diabetes Research Center. Well. he said. exactly ‑‑ and hopefully you aren’t like watching it right now walking off a cliff. So he’s really shown that. doctor. you know. I’m going to make your little thing on your wrist that tells you how many steps you’re doing talk to your phone. how about walking across Greece or walking across London or something like that? And so basically he had this idea two or three years before this Pokémon Go thing came up. So. actually could prevent diabetes nerve damage in animals with diabetes and also a slightly higher doses would also prevent heart damage and in some cases also cause weight loss. we’re all very competitive. Omaha or something. guess what. we always tell our patients in the clinic to. I want to be paying attention to. and Chris was a person who showed that there was a substance that was in the peel of the apple. actually study this to actually see if this. We will actually say who wants to walk around. and see who walks the most in a day. It tells the cell how much to get bigger and smaller. you get married and have kids. you all know Chris Adams. Also supported by funds from the Diabetes Research Center. so. right? He said. recently published a paper and discovered that. Again. ultimately to prevent heart attacks and strokes. Charlie Brenner shown here who’s also a member of the Diabetes Research Center. Iowa City or. And this is Dr. you know what. and then he had a computer that he set up. you know. ABEL: So it turns out that Phil Polgreen. you know. and some people have. And so he got a big grant from the Federal Government. really amazing work and really begins to show the interconnections between. you know. And Dr. like. He’s now activated that protein that prevents the fat cells from expanding. Fraternal Order of Eagles 61 So this is actually really. you know. So Chris is somebody many of you met when you came to Iowa. I will do it. something that you actually buy in the health food store. which is a big risk factor for developing diabetes. but then he then sent back to your phone a map of Google Earth. yes. I did it for a day or two and then afterward. okay. a Vitamin B. you know. We were. right? And so he said. you know. actually more than one apple. we’ll even make it more interesting. This is Dr. go out and walk more and exercise more. this is something that. in fact. So how many of you have heard about this thing called Pokémon Go? Well. Stay tuned because this could ultimately translate to a medication that actually would prevent the fat from coming on. and all of a sudden it runs away with you. So he’s figured out the active ingredient that’s in the apple peels that does this and now formed a company and is actually now trying to put this thing in a pill so that might be coming up soon. So you know that saying. is going to make a real difference in people’s ability to actually increase their activities. who I’m showing you on this slide here. okay. and I think are going to have significant impacts on what we are doing. when you sign up with five or six people in your neighborhood or whoever. he’s figured out a protein on the fat cell that actually is the gatekeeper. we have brought together some amazingly smart people into the diabetes center. He’s also figured out. It’s a vitamin. but. okay. again. It’s called Nicotinamide Riboside. and he’s basically found a gene. An apple a day. you know. He came to us from Harvard. was. Well. lots of apple peel may actually keep the diabetes away. And then on the whole theme of vitamins. and what his idea was. (Laughter. one part of the body and another part of the body. but he was using it primarily to motivate our patients to actually stay active and have fun doing it. Rajan Saw also brought into the diabetes center. life happens. Lutter.

Brandon Davies studies how when you eat. and I think that even though we’re only been at this for a couple of years. right. right? So this is Dr. very important role in burning calories. and. I want to thank you so much for supporting us. and. to prevent some of these. Dr. I have one more. worldwide for a cure for diabetes. People who don’t actually eat much. I would never have dreamed. then you can actually begin to say. Actually I do. PAST GRAND MADAM PRESIDENT JEAN KERR: Thank you. and keep up the good work. again. these real complications of diabetes.) DR. So. But the idea is that we all need ultimately to be losing weight to get a better handle on our diabetes. began to understand a significant part ‑‑ and believe it or not. If you’re in Iowa City at any time. and if you think about it. you know. and I think that as he begins to figure that out. and thank you and Jackie. number one. We’d love to have you and show you around. Eric Taylor. for sharing your vast knowledge and the knowledge of the women and the men. you know. I know too much fat basically goes and clogs the arteries. Grobe. again. as a diabetic your liver makes too much fat.Monday Meeting and it’s interesting. So who wants to kind of increase their metabolism and burn off fat? (Laughter. This is Dr. He actually was able to find the gene that was damaged in people. you maybe eat too much fat. but I can’t. Dr. 20. I want you to be confident that we are well on the way to really breaking down many of the barriers that have caused a tremendous amount of suffering in individuals who have diabetes. for. which you think is a tube that takes things out and takes things out.62 July 18. that we could have done this together. that’s not to say we’re going to eat more to burn. and it’s not so easy because we didn’t really fully know the parts of the body that actually does the burning. Ling Yang also brought from Harvard and the commonest cause of liver cancer in this country is something called Nash. We’re waving the flag for you. the doctors. and I look forward to seeing you many. eat a meal and you’re. our progress has really been much faster than many other places which have been doing it for 10. if the gene is damaged to make people not want to eat. ABEL: So I think most of us want to do that. which is associated with Type II Diabetes. let us know. which is inflammation of the liver. like. that the door is always open. 30 years. actually is a very. will actually have another way that we can be burning calories. And I think the last person I’m going to just mention is Dr. waving the flag for us. by any measure. How can I tweak that or make a drug to make people want to eat less? So. there are too many people to talk about. and so she’s figured out how that happens and ultimately not only will have better prevention for the complications of liver disease and diabetes but also new treatments. I think this will be really important. again. Again. and so he’s figured out how the fat crosses into the arteries in the first place. two days. but I thought of just giving you a little flavor of some of the work that is happening in the Diabetes Research Center. thank you. our gut. United States. Thank you again for being here and sharing your knowledge. again. and he studies people with anorexia nervosa. you know. He’s found a protein that does that. and I know that you will continue on with the funds that you receive from the Fraternal Order of Eagles and other places to find that cure. and now is looking to make a drug to try to prevent that from happening. okay. many . and I can go on for. I look forward again to giving you some more news and updates when I come back. so. 2016 . and. this is going to become a very important advance as we deal with diabetes. and he had a whole bunch of families where it passed along in the family. Again. Abel. So what I can say is. he’s figured out why. Again. two years ago. Thanks to all the researchers at the university for us for what they are doing for us and worldwide. and so he’s understanding that. and so he knows. and so he’s trying not to block that. remember. researchers that are working for our sake and for the sake of everyone across the jurisdiction of Canada. It’s great seeing you. He’s found ‑‑ makes too much sugar. Now. So he’s a psychiatrist.

When we add all of our work together and share the total number. and what we try to do was unite everybody on one day to make that happen. I can’t tell you enough personally how thankful I am for the people in this room for the work that you did to make that successful. the Bible was closed.) GRAND AERIE MARKETING DIRECTOR ZACK TIMMONS: We also did our first People Helping Pantries drive. I’m Zack Timmons. GRAND AERIE MARKETING DIRECTOR ZACK TIMMONS: Most of you know me. and I can tell you it was an incredible experience. Zack Timmons were escorted into the meeting.Monday Meeting (WHEREUPON. enables more people to be aware of what we’re doing. I’m the Marketing and Communication Director at the Grand Aerie. (Applause.A. In May I had the privilege of going to Minneapolis for the first donation of a suit on our behalf.86 July 18. And we’ve really just been trying to fundraise to purchase these suits to put in Veterans Affairs Hospitals to help the men and women who suffer from full or partial paralysis.) GRAND AERIE MARKETING DIRECTOR ZACK TIMMONS: What we’ve also done is try to come up with some new ways to expose to current members some of the things that we’re doing. and we wanted to try to piggy back on some of these mailings that we have going out of the office to provide you with materials to hang on the bulletin boards to make everybody aware of what we have going on. They came out yesterday as well for those of you at the show. We’ve had a pretty exciting year in my department. walked around and immediately came up to me and asked. Explained that Minnesota was a pretty big state for us. So if you live in Minnesota and somebody comes walking in because they saw the suit at the hospital.) (Music played and clapping while Mr. I let them know as. but also through the lobby of the V. We’re really trying to get more major initiatives done because getting things on a full level where all of our Aeries and Auxiliaries are participating enables to get better coverage media‑wise. I shared the story of the Eagles with them. 2016 . As you know. When we took on this project. and many were receptive. so they should probably go out and try to find someone close to them so they can join. (Laughter. Some of you might have seen the posters that were included in the registration bags this year. not only through the meeting area where we had the actual ceremony. THE SISTERS: Good morning. That’s what makes people look at us and admire the job that we’ve done. I can’t tell you how many men and women in chairs waiting to be served who saw the gentleman put the suit on. we introduced our XO Project. Hospital and watch the gentleman put the suit on and walk. individuals who have served that they would be eligible for a year of membership for free. Several of the patients ‑‑ we were basically in the waiting area for the hospital. but for those of you that don’t. you’re welcome. To sit there with the men and women from the V. You should have received . you know. and there were. we knew that almost all of our Aeries and Auxiliaries at some point or another throughout the year donated to food pantries. Sisters. Many of them were excited about that as well. and I thank everybody for their buy in on that.) GRAND AERIE MARKETING DIRECTOR ZACK TIMMONS: Good morning. that’s what makes people stop and listen. Larry Rush and Mr. Because it’s a lot easier for me to send one release that says all of our Aeries and Auxiliaries donated this huge total as opposed to several separate ones throughout the year where the numbers don’t seem as important. We also did a poster in February with the NASCAR schedule. and creates a bigger atmosphere around the events that we do. who we were. last year in Milwaukee. Hospital was amazing.A.

It should have quite a bit more information. Fraternal Order of Eagles 87 a poster with the Aerie and Auxiliary membership awards for the coming year as well as a poster for this year People Helping Pantries drive. they can go and save money on insurance or any other program that we have. It will have all of our benefits information so that now that they’re a member. We’re also going to be continuing this poster project. and once they’re ready. I’d like to say that my department pretty much only functions with information from you guys. And all you have to do is take one brochure. and we’re trying to do everything we can to make it easier to find what you need. if we have some left. So we’ve really listened to everyone’s complaints and concerns about the website. but we’ve gone in and we’ve redesigned the navigational structure so that where things are located makes a lot more sense for you and for me. It will have instructions about how the membership awards programs works. By the time you have your Regional Conference. Something else we’ll be releasing before the Regional Conferences is a welcome brochure. so that should make it a lot easier if you type in a keyword or anything like that to find what you need. about the same size. and you go. It will have instructions on how they can login to the Member’s Only Website. We have many people that call in the or E‑Mail the office with questions about what they do now that they are a member. How they can recruit a member. So if you have any questions or concerns or ideas or things you do like or don’t like about the website or the brochure. We’ve also improved the search bar at the top. Vince has some membership projects coming up that we will be putting on a poster that should be going out with the mailing for legislative changes from this year’s convention. I’d also like to talk to you a little bit about what we have coming up. so we’re really trying to develop a piece that includes everything you need. I work on it every day and sometimes I have trouble finding things. next year’s convention mailing that provide you with materials that you can hang up and really expose what it is we do to the people we have in our Aeries and Auxiliaries who come in. So take what you need. the less we take home. future constitutions mailings. It’s got a little more power behind it. We want to try to get everyone more involved. We want to provide them with the contact information they need for the people in the office so that they can. We’re adding pages for compliance. I know that there are several pieces of literature now that exist and sometimes it’s hard to find one of everything and give to somebody after they join. So grab whatever you want. you know. Do not be afraid to take more. and underneath each step will have the appropriate forms and links that you need to make sure that you’re in compliance. we’ll ship them out to you. it will be pretty similar to that. If you’ve seen our Who We Are brochure or the charity brochure or our new publicity one. and we feel like this is a very good cost‑effective way for us to do that. the Secretaries can order those through supplies. I always like to say. buy beer but don’t necessarily participate. We want to do everything we can to make sure that you have the tools and resources you need to be as successful as you possibly can.com. If you know somebody that’s not here that would like one. and we will be doing things throughout the year inside of the proceedings mailings. so it should list all six of the things that you need to be in full compliance. and we have several leftover in the office and several leftover downstairs here. they know that they’re comfortable letting us know if they have any questions or concerns. It’s designed to give to someone after they go through the initiation process. please always feel free to call the marketing department or E‑Mail us. you will see a new version of FOE. I can tell you that. please come down and grab one. and we wanted to develop a piece that you can hand to them following the initiation that answers the majority of those questions. so it should be faster. . The more you take home. that’s not a good sign. The front page looks pretty similar to what we have now. hand that to the person initiated. I don’t have the ability to be out in the Auxiliaries every day to know what works and what doesn’t work. and it should answer everything that they need.

Just kind of give you guys some facts. I really appreciate the opportunity to speak to you. our CFO. MR. Last year the Grand Aerie paid $1. It’s an honor to be here in this capacity and to speak with all of you and serve all of you. GRAND MADAM PRESIDENT HELEN “PENNY” SKINNER: Thank you. I will let everyone know the Funeral Benefit Fund is very solvent.) MR. whether they’re good or bad.000 to all the local Aeries and Auxiliaries. I want to be as transparent as possible.240. that percentage gets larger. LARRY RUSH: Well. You’re the ones actually paying per capita tax and all those types of things.000 for the next seven years to get rid of it. We are going to be paying $1. so we’re trying to make that. so I was given two directives when I came up here.800. So two years combined that was $3. (Applause. The biggest thing I want you to take from that is the pension fund was underfunded. let us know. 2016 .Monday Meeting So if there’s something about a brochure that you don’t think is effective or something that you have noticed has helped you bring in several new members. so 77% of that $12 million was actually local Aeries and Auxiliaries that had that. and we love you for them. I will try to be as quick as possible. That was an initial $12 million loan that was taken out. so I just .) GRAND MADAM PRESIDENT HELEN “PENNY” SKINNER: I will now introduce Larry Rush. Zack. then the revenue goes down. LARRY RUSH: And I discuss the Funeral Benefits Fund. But so you understand. But thank you very much for your support. and it was great when we did it. That’s how I operate. what the burden would be on you guys so.) GRAND MADAM PRESIDENT HELEN “PENNY” SKINNER: The money man. and we can incorporate those into everything else we’re doing.240. I love coming over and talking to you guys. So that would have been $9. I believe you should know all the information I do because there’s no reason to hide anything.350. nothing to worry about. It’s important for me to have as much information as possible because the information from the people out in the field in our Auxiliaries recruiting new members is what helps us develop the tools that you need to continue to be able to do that. So if you’re a member. feel free to come up to me.000 that the Grand Aerie agreed to pay for the local Aeries and Auxiliaries so they didn’t have to. It’s now down to $11. that’s all I have. Thank you. I’m ecstatic. That seems to be what I do more than anything here. I’ll probably be running around the hallway. thank you. and that. They provide value to us. just imagine. my belief is that the debt and the membership that’s declining are the two biggest obstacles this organization faces. Just to let you know from the. You’re always much more fun than across the way. if we had to spread out $9.000 toward the debt. I’m not going to specifically read off of my report that I’ve written. Sisters. So I can’t promise the two minutes. so I tackle debt very seriously. Thank you. I’ve been given a little piece of advice. (Applause. because we already understand everyone is struggling. and anytime you need me.) MR. (Laughter. for all your calls and your E‑Mails. So thank you very much. (Laughter. LARRY RUSH: I just want to go through a few things that’s related to the financials. All loans have been paid off. It’s in a good place.000. make sure I did not go over two minutes. Okay. except for one. It’s going to save millions of dollars in the future so. So if membership continues to decline. Just to let you understand. That’s what I believe in. that’s 20% of the revenue that the Grand Aerie receives.000. This is my fourth year actually as the CFO at the convention. which is the one to terminate the pension fund.750.950.88 July 18.

I know where it comes from. Okay. we don’t have an expense problem. We cannot cut our way out of the membership problem we are facing. I want to read this verbatim because I think it’s important. O. At this time . (Laughter. I don’t want something to happen in years down the road. Okay. store. So if the revenue doesn’t come in. Another thing I want to talk about is the DRC. well. A per capita tax increase will be needed.000 for the first time of people that are paying per capita tax. but I really enjoy speaking to you Ladies. But the one thing I do want to talk about that’s positive. The major challenge facing leadership from a financial perspective is how to fund the necessary investment in programs. LARRY RUSH: I see it every day. you can’t fix membership and revenues by cutting expenses. Fraternal Order of Eagles 89 want you to understand first and foremost. Larry. But once. but we still owe approximately $1. just ask. MR. I said. those things are ways to bring in more revenue to offset the loss of membership revenue. we lost 38. that’s why my department does everything we can on the financial side. LARRY RUSH: Thank you. so ‑‑ and then I talk about this. and I wasn’t invited before. handling our situation with marketing. we’re here to serve you.) GRAND MADAM PRESIDENT HELEN “PENNY” SKINNER: Thank you. (Applause. so that kind of tells you where we are. Thank you. Larry Rush and Mr. However.) MR. for you to give these reports. E. So the levels of expenses are back to the 1990 levels.) (Music played and clapping as Mr.235 per capita taxpaying members last year. I really appreciate the opportunity. and I really appreciate you coming in to our meeting and giving us face value. You know. and training to rejuvenate membership in the midst of a declining income. We dropped below 700. Zack Timmons were escorted out of the meeting. We have a revenue problem. that’s a fixed cost that can’t be changed. LARRY RUSH: You know. again. it doesn’t really matter what the expenses are. I’d rather just tell you upfront and be honest with you. Without an increase in membership. I mean. the budget will not be able to be balanced in the future. I know I’m sure everyone harps on different things. I appreciate.2 million. I really appreciate the opportunity. If there’s any questions. You know.) MR. Just to let you know.) GRAND MADAM PRESIDENT HELEN “PENNY” SKINNER: And we think it is important for us to. and I wish everyone a good rest of the convention. This is only the second year I’ve been here. (Applause. Please continue to raise it. nobody told me this. We must continue to invest in the organization despite the loss of revenue. they’re the ones that are handling our money. again. marketing.) GRAND MADAM PRESIDENT HELEN “PENNY” SKINNER: Thank you. for the past seven years expenses have been flat or declining. We must invest in marketing. (Applause. (Applause. the F. I continue to harp and say. It’s really ‑‑ it’s that simple. You know. this problem is very easily fixed with just an increase in membership. and I thank you for that opportunity. That’s great. membership programs to grow the organization. but if you have questions. Please we know who raises the money in this organization. I just wanted to read that verbatim. You cannot continue to grow and succeed. That’s why we talk about the programs like Nationwide. Okay? So thank you. The two just don’t. they just don’t mix. call and ask. because I believe in transparency. So 80% of the revenue comes from per capita tax. That’s a lot. There’s an old business adage of cutting your own throat.

Okay. Grand Madam Trustee. We’re going to have a shorter day tomorrow. I’d like to call on Mary Bourne for her Max Baer Heart Fund from Oklahoma. 2016.

As an organization you have four primary goals in your strategic plan. a rehab center. but I want to say. We’re only an avenue to connect you. the donor. but before I do. I can tell you I’m sure that today if 100 years ago we would have said this is what it’s going to grow into. might not ever know exactly the mark you have left on others through this gift. It can be a smile to the cashier or it can be that gesture when we’re having a little bit of road rage. I make this distinction because in this case. and those in need to make the positive difference in cancer patient’s lives. assure financial stability. but is truly remarkable. It’s our decision to make what kind of mark we leave in this world. Steve Tolman. (Applause. and I’ve heard about this this evening over and over: Grow your combined membership. When actually these gifts are given not to the foundation. preserve the fraternity. but I would be remiss if I did not take the opportunity to recognize as well the gifts Schneck Medical Center has received over the past ten years from your organization. but to continue to make that mark remarkable. We will all leave this world at some point. We’re only a vehicle. I hear people say I or we have a gift to be given to the foundation. and.

GRAND MADAM PRESIDENT HELEN “PENNY” SKINNER: Officers, take your
places. We will now have the Obligation, read by Past Grand Madam President, Doris Bateson. All
Delegates please rise.
(Rap.)
GRAND MADAM PRESIDENT HELEN “PENNY” SKINNER: Just Delegates.
PAST GRAND MADAM PRESIDENT DORIS BATESON: My Sisters and Delegates,
you now find yourselves within the Grand Auxiliary of the Fraternal Order of Eagles. You reach
this destination and high estate, by honorable and loyal service in your Auxiliary. You are the Grand
Auxiliary.
What this Grand Auxiliary does, is your responsibility. You are accountable to your Auxiliary,
to your conscience, and to your God.
An abundance of experience in our Sisterhood fits you well for your important mission.
Before you may go further and be entrusted with duties of importance, you will with your right

Fraternal Order of Eagles 117
hand raised, take this solemn and binding Obligation, which I will recite, and you, if you so desire,
will affirm at its conclusion.
All Officers, Delegates, and members of the Grand Auxiliary will join in the Obligation.
Before God, and on my honor, I promise as a condition to my becoming a member of the
Grand Auxiliary, that I will abide by and obey the laws, the Rules and Regulations of the Grand
Auxiliary and of the Fraternal Order of Eagles.
I reaffirm all Obligations by me heretofore taken as a member or officer of the Fraternal Order
of Eagles.
I recognize the Grand Aerie as the supreme body of the Fraternal Order of Eagles and shall
cherish and uphold its good name.
I fully realize that a chain is no stronger than its weakest link and that throughout the jurisdiction
of Eagledom, we are bound together in this great Sisterhood by our Auxiliaries, by our State and our
Provincial Auxiliaries, by our Grand Auxiliary and by our Grand Aerie.
If I fail as a member of the Grand Auxiliary, and my actions are destructive of unity and
progress, I know that I tear down the fabric, not only of the Grand Aerie, the Grand Auxiliary, and
my State or Provincial Auxiliary, but I weaken my own Auxiliary.
I fully understand that changes in the laws enacted must be by constitutional and lawful
methods, and not by destructive criticism of the action of the majority designed to undermine
competence and faith in the Grand Aerie and the Fraternal Order of Eagles.
I believe in the patriotic and humanitarian purposes of the Fraternal Order of Eagles. I believe
in my country, and I owe to it the zeal of a patriot.
To me, our precepts are more than just words. To me, they are the cornerstone of our
Sisterhood, in whose welfare I am ardently concerned.
I take this Obligation in the presence of Almighty God, who looks down upon us from above,
and should I violate this Obligation, I recognize that such conduct is just cause for expulsion from
membership in the Grand Auxiliary.
My Sisters, if any Sister does not accept this Obligation, she will advance to the Altar and so
indicate, then quietly leave the Grand Auxiliary.
(Pause.)
But if you do accept, repeat after me: I do accept this Obligation, and I will observe it, so help
me God.
THE SISTERS: I do accept this Obligation, and I will observe it, so help me God.
GRAND MADAM PRESIDENT HELEN “PENNY” SKINNER: Thank you, Past Madam
President, Doris. At this time we’ll call Past Grand Madam President, Linda Heffner, for protocol.
(Rap.)
PAST GRAND MADAM PRESIDENT LINDA HEFFNER: Thank you, Grand Madam
President. Good morning, Sisters.
THE SISTERS: Good morning.
PAST GRAND MADAM PRESIDENT LINDA HEFFNER: Protocol: Grand Madam
President, honored guests, Grand Auxiliary Officers, Past Grand Madam Presidents, Regional
Madam Presidents, State and Provincial Auxiliary Officers, local Auxiliary Officers, Delegates,
Non‑Delegates, and Sisters, welcome.

(Applause. because I was dealing with a great loss. and from the bottom of my heart. tragedy will happen. to my younger brother and sister. (Laughter. whatever that means to you. which affects a ton of people. The entire time that I’ve been here. you always think about your children when something happens to someone. Mark my words. there were two things that I took solace in at the time. so please keep up the good work. MIQUEL PENA: It’s a good day to be an Eagle. So because of that. was that he passed doing something that was very meaningful to him.) (Cheers. Looking back. they become our children. I want to thank you so much for the honor of being Liaison on the Memorial Fund. awesome displays of charity and affection. from the bottom of my heart. Thank you.) MR. So keep your faith. Because in all honesty. and I have to say. the Aerie with yesterday ‑‑ we’ll see. keep moving forward. (Laughter. and I believe he wanted to start an Eagle Riders group so that he could ride his motorcycle as much as possible. It’s a part of life. He was very interested in having students succeed. That was just one time. And. that was offered to family members that had passed on in the course of their work. This opportunity couldn’t have come to a better time to be honest with you. New Mexico. look how big our family is. The support was a significant factor in my completing my degree at the University of New Mexico. your family. In my short time here with both the Aerie and the Auxiliaries represented. MIQUEL PENA: Thank you.) MR. . and my focus really wasn’t on academics and finances the way it should have been. I know that he was a member for a relatively short time in comparison to a lot of you. He talked about running for the position of Chaplain of the local chapter. whether that be in God. He was personally driving student applications to the local community college in Las Cruces. Keep paying dues. MIQUEL PENA: Check that out. and really to the community at large. Flag and Country.) MR. but we’ll see how quickly you all respond. your father couldn’t be more proud than we are. but fear not. support sprouts from the most unlikely and unforeseen places. One especially important source of support came from the Fraternal Order of Eagles Memorial Foundation. (Standing ovation. I was contacted by the Order and informed that I could take advantage of a scholarship that offered. two. and he thought one of the best ways to succeed was through education. and I realize that it truly is a broad spectrum across this great country that you influence everything from the diabetes research. support will come and you will make it. I’ve been treated with nothing but class and dignity. down to an individual like myself. your great organization. Fraternal Order of Eagles 133 I can’t really think of the words to justify the loss that it was to myself. If there was one message I can leave you with. and they’re left an orphan. to his parents specifically.

It’s for kids that are experiencing an overwhelming reaction to trauma. dogs.000 positives or 50. we offer the upmost and the best therapy we can possibly do. in psychology. It has a very soothing environment. So little Johnny. it’s called our trauma recovery unit.D.) SISTER JOLENE OBRIGEWITCH: Girl power. so let’s put them in the unit. we always used to talk about the kids have a level system. and what that means is. but maybe the menu for the week. She has a huge love and passion for animals. for the great outdoors. the staff. It has been men all these 66 years. and her name is Mel Rose. The other thing with trauma informed care is. We are not going to give up on you kids. and so she expresses her hello and her thank you. Yes. and she comes from years of experience with working with troubled kids. What are these new things that we are doing? Do you remember in the old days. And this is actually a dorm right on Home on the Range. their therapist. we realize just how traumatized some of these kids are. Little Joe. It has the capacity for four students. Let’s get out with the old and in with some new stuff. We’re moving away from that. so. our God. Home on the Range. you know. you know. You don’t get to go to the co‑ed dance.000 negatives.

This is another opportunity to help you. but it’s been very successful because it’s highly structured. it’s more natural consequences because these are the things that they’re going to confront when they leave Home on the Range with their families in work. She’s so wonderful. She has a Ph. and so I’m thinking. 2016 . The other thing about trauma informed care is giving these kids a chance and opinion and a right to voice and choice. she’s actually the first female director of Home on the Range. and so we’re celebrating 66 years. She’s a super lady. That’s a really good question. So the kids are having their own voice and choice and opinions. you’re doing really well in school. and we recognize that. but most importantly she puts people first ‑‑ the children. Maybe they are thinking about harming themselves. possibly even their own therapist or their therapy. this is also another new thing. enthusiast. Or. In the clinical world they call this trauma informed care. She is the most compassionate person I have met. is that there’s more natural consequences. This allows us to do that.Tuesday Session traumatized children. and their social worker and therapist is there for one‑on‑one 24 hours if they need it. So the first thing I’d like to say is we do have a new executive director. but why can’t I wear my cap in the dorm? The staff get to wear their caps. but they don’t know why. so apparently they need some more help. Just like you do with your own kids and maybe your grandkids. She’s. yeah. it’s time for spring cleaning. her Sister and her dad. you’re not doing so good in school. (Applause. you do get to go to that co‑ed dance. And with that. So these are things rather than saying you earn 2. Now. I agree or I do disagree. and we have been helping those kids since 1950. she’s such a little fire cracker that even I have a hard time keeping up. and you’re going to hear about that. I think Penny was going to talk a little bit about our animal assistant therapy that we talked about when she . They at least have a right to say. like. possibly other students or staff. The only thing is. and they have out of control behavior. horses and all animals. She was so looking forward to being at the conference and something came up with her family. and it’s usually a short stay. Let’s do this. maybe they just can’t handle being in placement. She’s a huge adventure therapist.

Mel is a huge outdoor enthusiast. Being at the authority. and it’s very relaxing. two mules. He’s only five years old this summer. It is so cute. That’s his spot. Daisy and Misty. I’m going to read you a couple quotes that the kids say about the equine program. Yellowstone National Park. Quote: My horse Spook is the most important thing in my program. all the positive and the negative things. So the first track is our horses. and all of this. or they’re not able to deal with issues because they’re dealing with the puppies. our relationship is my reality. and the dog handlers take Compass into school. they’re anxiety. We have miniature horses. And then there’s from a young lady. Trust me. I never even touched a horse until I got here to Home on the Range. but he actually serves a real purpose as a therapy dog. Sue and Sally. They clean the kennels. but we have a matching pair of mules. and we work with a B school. my God. And. They train the puppies. remember Compass. so now we have miniature baby ponies. (Laughter. (Applause. and he’s really stubborn. our Golden Retriever? He’s the old timer. These are some of the journal entries from the kids. Fraternal Order of Eagles 139 visited Home on the Range. but the purposes of the boys in the group with the canine is they actually work with the puppies. and then a miniature mule ‑‑ guess who’s singing tonight. I’ve got somebody. is it busy out at Home on the Range. And I don’t think there’s a whole lot of positive comments about potty training a puppy. (Laughter. Who in here does not love puppies? Oh. So our canine program has two yellow lab puppies and two blue heeler puppies. And we have what is called Camp Compass. We’ve taken him to the North Dakota capitol. they doubled our herd within two weeks. We have taken him to social work conferences. and Compass is a rock star. You talk about Home on the Range. I know what a healthy life‑style and relationship actually is. they have to journal. and in North Dakota. my God. and they get to read to Compass. Even if he is just a horse.

We have miniature mules that actually pull a cart. we’re relatively close to national parks. Well. and I never thought I would end up loving riding. boy. Madam President. the two little miniature horses we had. You just look in his eyes and you can’t help but give him a treat. whatever they’re doing. I wish I brought pictures. it keeps that book learning and that reading and those kids are really interested. And we have heard such positive remarks from our school district because in the lower grades. I picked him because he has a personality that is pretty close to mine. and he’s our one and only therapy dog. my horse’s name is Peppy. We have Glacier National Park. introduce them to different environments and staff. and we have dogs. and he rides shotgun.) SISTER JOLENE OBRIGEWITCH: And they are wonderful in the equine track. The last thing I want to talk about is our new adventure therapy. is it Elvis? Yeah. we have it all. no. We take him all over the place. They feed the animals. and then over the last three months. Oh. We have horses. It takes a lot of patience to deal with horses.) SISTER JOLENE OBRIGEWITCH: But just like me.) SISTER JOLENE OBRIGEWITCH: I could say something. and he is the most loving.

Who’s going to cook? Who’s going to clean? Who’s going to set up camp? These are all process learning things that they need to learn and not be able to just lose it. it’s an activities‑based hands‑on learning therapeutic process. and for our reward. end of quote. So this is all the new stuff that we have. and they work together. So the Eagle imprint is all over the campus buildings. have their emotions under control. Its communication skills. The Yellowstone trip I went on was one of the coolest and most interesting trips I’ve ever gone on. we have a group of boys that are taking a train trip to Glacier National Park as their capstone event this week. and this is all new to me. so they got to go snow shooting. you know. you see Eagle Hall. Eight boys. Had a huge impact on this kid. and its eight weeks. but. The Eagles emblem in our gym. No. there’s eight boys and one bathroom. he’s now looking at college to possibly be a biologist or a ranger. which was our first building built in 1960. that’s just us being us. They work on planning for a capstone event. They get in fitness shape. The Eagles imprint is all over Home on the Range. which is pretty cool. and then they got to see a wolf pack. so we’re working these things out together. and then doing something like that. And so this is all something new. We have the dining hall named after Eagle member Carl Burnett who did a huge fundraiser for us. When you come for a visit. your dedication. Now that happens so rarely I’ve been told by the rangers at Glacier. the Mollies. In fact. which is our boys dorm. we got to eat the best food ever at Ribs and Chops in Billings. I want to share with you the first trip that one of the boys did. We were overall real behaved. I’m still learning about this so Mel helped me with the description. (Laughter. and it was in April. The struggle for little things like no Wi-Fi for the staff ‑‑ do you guys operate without Wi-Fi? Okay. Other than that. and we saw the Lamar’s for a glimpse.

And as a recreational activity. and yet this first time that they went. I would go back in a heartbeat. but it’s also with our kids and our education. The scratchiness on the radio because they had a GPS radio. and I think Madam President could testify to that. What we’ve come up with is an adventure therapy. There’s other two advantages of this adventure therapy. We also got to know staff on a personal level and got to know them without so many consequences. a lot of our kids come from poverty level homes. and it helps them develop healthy conflict resolutions. but we’ve got to remember there’s a reason why Home on the Range has been helping kids for 66 years and that’s because of the oldies and the goodies like you Ladies. you know. It’s how to work out difficulties when. and right now as I’m down here. They went to Yellowstone. Okay. you Ladies have been here from the get‑go with your consistency. It’s how to work together. It’s designed to be time limited with the group. That’s another wolf pack. Custer State National Park in North Dakota. . There’s a group of boys and girls. They probably could never afford to go on a vacation. but if we don’t teach our youth. We saw them as clear as day. 2016 . and it’s a team building thing. you know. and they are so excited.Tuesday Session Park. they got to see a wolf pack and here’s what this young man said. and the car packed with boys and staff. and your empathy to help kids. They need to be. It’s how to plan. not your age. One of the best moments of our trip was when we saw the first wolf pack. She says. We have plaques in the girl’s dorm for all of your wonderful dedication and your financial contributions to make new Fahnlander Hall a dream for us. a few swear words here and there. The second we all know how important our natural environment is to us. it was great. how are they going to teach their children? So it’s really important to stress the importance of these natural environments and to keep those so that the future generations can enjoy them. noting that contribution to our facility so the kids have a gym to play in.

Fraternal Order of Eagles 207
What this Grand Auxiliary does, is your responsibility. You are accountable to your Auxiliary,
to your conscience, and to your God.
An abundance of experience in our Sisterhood fits you well for your important mission.
Before you may go further and be entrusted with duties of importance, you will with your right
hand raised, take this solemn and binding Obligation, which I will recite, and you, if you so desire,
will affirm at its conclusion.
All Officers, Delegates, and members of the Grand Auxiliary will join in the Obligation.
Before God, and on my honor, I promise as a condition to my becoming a member of the
Grand Auxiliary, that I will abide by and obey the laws, the Rules and Regulations of the Grand
Auxiliary and of the Fraternal Order of Eagles.
I reaffirm all Obligations by me heretofore taken as a member or Officer of the Fraternal Order
of Eagles. I recognize the Grand Aerie as the supreme body of the Fraternal Order of Eagles and shall
cherish and uphold its good name.
I fully realize that a chain is no stronger than its weakest link and that throughout the jurisdiction
of Eagledom, we are bound together in this great Sisterhood by our Auxiliaries, by our State and our
Provincial Auxiliaries, by our Grand Auxiliary and by our Grand Aerie.
If I fail as a member of the Grand Auxiliary, and my actions are destructive of unity and
progress, I know that I tear down the fabric, not only of the Grand Aerie, the Grand Auxiliary, and
my State or Provincial Auxiliary, but I weaken my own Auxiliary.
I fully understand that changes in the laws enacted must be by constitutional and lawful
methods, and not by destructive criticism of the action of the majority designed to undermine
competence and faith in the Grand Aerie and the Fraternal Order of Eagles.
I believe in the patriotic and humanitarian purposes of the Fraternal Order of Eagles. I believe
in my country, and I owe to it the zeal of a patriot.
To me, our precepts are more than just words. To me, they are the cornerstone of our
Sisterhood, in whose welfare I am ardently concerned.
I take this Obligation in the presence of Almighty God, who looks down upon us from above,
and should I violate this Obligation, I recognize that such conduct is just cause for expulsion from
membership in the Grand Auxiliary.
My Sisters and Delegates, if any Sister does not accept this Obligation, she will advance to the
Altar and so indicate, then quietly leave the Grand Auxiliary.
(Pause.)
But if you do accept, repeat after me: I do accept this Obligation, and I will observe it, so help
me God.
THE SISTERS: I do accept this Obligation, and I will observe it, so help me God.

PAST GRAND MADAM PRESIDENT JACQUELIN “JACKIE” SPAHN: I would just
like to thank all of you that have offered in any way throughout this week to help me, from getting on
the elevators to getting into my room. So many people have offered to help, and I really appreciate
it. You’ll just never know.

PAST GRAND MADAM PRESIDENT ROXANNE ALLEY McGOVERN: Good
morning, Sisters.
THE SISTERS: Good morning.
PAST GRAND MADAM PRESIDENT ROXANNE ALLEY McGOVERN: Before I give
my report, I just have a few things that I’d like to announce.
I guess there was a little confusion with the figures in my speech on Monday night, so I’d like
to just clarify that for all the Sisters.
As of 2005, 5‑31, we had 1,581 Auxiliaries, 365,377 members; and at the end of May 31,
2015, we had 1,262 Auxiliaries, 240,117 Auxiliaries.
Sisters, that’s a loss of 319 Auxiliaries. 125,260 members. Another reason we need to get the
proclamation out. I have the copies. Please come get them and bring them back.
As you know, Pre‑Registration is co‑chaired, so I’m going to let Sister Mary say a few words.
PAST GRAND MADAM PRESIDENT MARY MYERS: Few words.
(Laughter.)
PAST GRAND MADAM PRESIDENT MARY MYERS: It has been an honor and a
privilege to work with Roxanne. We’ve done some pretty dumb things, but we’ve done some real
good things too, so it’s been my honor, Roxy, thank you so much for allowing me to work with you
and teaching me; and now we can do it again and know what we’re doing actually.
(Laughter.)
PAST GRAND MADAM PRESIDENT MARY MYERS: The Ladies that were registering
on Monday, were just wonderful. I’m not saying the ones on Tuesday weren’t, but they were very
patient with us, so by Tuesday we had it down very well, so thank you so much, Sisters, all of you,
because you were just great to us.
Now, on a personal note, this morning, I don’t know if any of you or maybe all of you or some
of you remember Bettie Daniels. She’s from Texas, and she was my Grandma, and they called in
Hospice at home for her.
And I have her address, and I would like to give it to you if you’re interested in sending her a
card.
Her name is Bettie Daniels. She was my Grandma in 2010‑2011. Her address is 841 Fostoria,
Houston, Texas ‑‑
THE SISTERS: Spell that.
PAST GRAND MADAM PRESIDENT MARY MYERS: Excuse me. Spell Fostoria,
F‑O‑S‑T‑O‑R‑I‑A. Houston, H‑O‑U‑S‑T‑O‑N.
(Laughter.)
PAST GRAND MADAM PRESIDENT MARY MYERS: Texas, T‑E‑X‑A‑S.
(Laughter.)
PAST GRAND MADAM PRESIDENT MARY MYERS: And her zip code is 77076‑4127.
So pray for her, will you please?
THE SISTERS: Read ‑‑
PAST GRAND MADAM PRESIDENT MARY MYERS: No lane. No avenue.

Fraternal Order of Eagles 211

PAST GRAND MADAM PRESIDENT ROXANNE ALLEY McGOVERN: Again on
behalf of Mary and myself, we want to thank all the Sisters that volunteered, plus the Sisters that we
had asked to help to please stand at this time and be recognized, because without each and every one
of you, we would not have been able to get the Sisters pre‑registered very quickly, so we owe this to
you.
So please stand, be recognized and also a special thank you to Carey Stotko, our veteran Sister,
who’s there for us every time we have to go to meetings and luncheons. Thank you.
God bless each and every one of you. And last but not least, on behalf of the children and the
homeless shelters, we thank each and every one of you for your donation. This year the donations
will be split between the state of Nevada and Idaho. Thank you.
Keep up the great work. Grand Madam President, thank you for appointing me to this
committee, and I move that our report be placed on file with the proceedings of this International
Convention. Thank you.
(Applause.)
A SISTER: Mary, Mary, could I just make a correction on the name? Her name is Bettie
Daniel. If you put an S on it, she’s going to get all upset.
PAST GRAND MADAM PRESIDENT MARY MYERS: Oh, no. Okay. Thank you.
Don’t put an S on it.
(Laughter.)
GRAND MADAM PRESIDENT HELEN “PENNY” SKINNER: Do I have a second on
the motion on the floor?
A SISTER: Second.

any questions on the reports? All in favor?

Here’s your badge. then we learned to like each other. and whatever it is you always wind up in trouble. you will go get the next Brother on the list. Tammy. okay. okay. Darrell Rall. and you would think he was all-American Jack Armstrong the way he described him. we’ll never get out of here. thank you for being my friend.) Don’t get me started. And over the years I come to find out he was exactly what he said. Maxine. And I said if I ever got to be Grand Worthy President. ever since we started hanging around together. would you be kind enough to go get my Mother. (Applause. I will let you know who my Father is. I got a big family.) There’s a clock for you to keep her. huh? (Laughter. Jerry. to where it’s at today.) . our Aerie. (Applause. (Applause. thank you for being my Brother. make sure I get home on time. But he is one of the finest people that I have ever met in my life.Installation of Officers once I got into the Grand Aerie. Miss Tammy Rall would be my Mother.) This is my good friend that I affectionately call the Chunky Monkey.) All right. I love you.) Tammy. (Applause. have you ever had a Brother that for some reason he’s the one that always gets you in trouble? And he kind of gets you in trouble. but he was never ever in the way. He’s the type of guy that would always give me advice when I needed it. Joe Huffman of Staunton 680. I have this clock so you can keep time and watch out for me. from my State. I love you. Jerry. Florida. (Applause. okay.

no. I will do my best to serve with dignity and not to disappoint you. they make us feel good when we reach them but. no.. Each and every one of you. oh. we need to keep the people we’ve already signed. you know. oh. Go ahead. but we bit the bullet this year. that makes me the Grand Worthy President of each and every member of this Fraternal Organization.) And I had to remind them that Tom was the cat and Jerry was the cute little mouse that always won.. . We would look good standing up here in these clothes. (Laughter. for me to say to you. and that’s you. you know... we can’t do that. we took care of it. you just can’t get in the same room that you really just don’t have some kind of a disagreement of some kind. We cannot do this. We’re not using the smoke in the mirrors anymore. but we wouldn’t have the Fraternal Organization we have.. (Applause. me and him used to fight all the time. everybody said. the last Brother I have. you are an important part of this Fraternal Organization and you need to be treated as such. when Tom and I was on the Board together we had those discussions. changing our way of doing things in our Local Aeries and Auxiliaries to make those people feel comfortable and make them feel a part of who we are. we got true numbers. we cleaned up our roster. If you ever had one of those Brothers where you constantly fight with them all the time. and keep them. we need to do things for you to help you. We have attacked many things in the last 118 years and we’ve always been successful. every member. to go along with the new ones that we bring in. they’re fine.) My Brothers and Sisters..if we sign up 150 members and at the end of the year we’ve lost 200. My motto this year is “Membership is the Wind Beneath Our Wings. the membership. this is my last one. We turned it over to you. holding those members that we got. (Applause. I had one of my own real brothers that was like that. and they started calling it the Tom and Jerry Show at times.) We have gone through some tough times in the last few years as far as our membership goes. We would be nothing without the membership. (Applause. are you crazy? And guess what? After a little while we figured it out. we have true. the membership. I am the Grand Worthy President of the Fraternal Order of Eagles. And most importantly. When we talked about raising $25 million for a Diabetes Research Center. Brother Tom McGrath. (Laughter. It is our job as Grand Aerie Officers and Grand Auxiliary Officers to help you in whatever way we can to get the job done. honest numbers of the size of this Fraternal Organization and now we can start with those numbers and move forward and start to grow. no matter what you do to help this Fraternal Organization is why we are as successful as we are today. if you’re in the kitchen cooking. it doesn’t do any good if we raise -. Fraternal Order of Eagles 277 Now last.” And I chose that because we not only need new members to strengthen us and help us grow. we have to remember who the Fraternal Order of Eagles are.) Each and every one of us. We need to treat each other with respect and dignity and I will always try to do that if you will allow me. if you’re moving furniture. buddy. it makes no difference.) Tom. oh. Looking forward to next year when you come up here. Yep. but we need to retain the members we have. if you’re Auxiliary. (Applause. I don’t care if you’re Aerie. you will do this. If you’re selling raffle tickets. and you raised $25 million for a Diabetes Research Center. if you’re scrubbing floors. I am here to try and help each and every one of you if I can. thank you. One of the things that I must.) A lot of people. you can start looking for him. we have lost members like all the other Fraternal Organizations. So what we need to do is start working on net gain. we will not be successful at that. it gives me great pleasure to be here and be your Grand Worthy President. We need to give you programs. but when it come time to cover each other’s back. the quotas are great.
