Word from The Aerie President

 Last month I mentioned how anyone with a good idea could submit it via the suggestion box on the wall by the club offices. I'd like to take that concept a step further, and encourage everyone to attend a meeting. If you have a concern, a question, a really good idea, or are just curious about how our club functions, you can attend and make your voice heard directly. Aerie meetings are held on the first and third Thursdays of each month, and Auxiliary meetings are on the first and third Tuesdays. 

      By attending meetings, you have the opportunity to exercise one of the most cherished principles of our club, Equality. Everyone in attendance has the right to vote on any matter on the floor, and unlike Congress, you don't have to worry about a filibuster! All you need is your valid membership card, and you can see first-hand how the process works. I'm looking forward to seeing you at a future meeting!

Word from Madam President Melissa Birman

Hello Eagle Sisters;

It is with great pleasure that I, Melissa Birman, am currently serving as your Auxiliary Madam President. Auxiliary meetings are held the first and third Tuesdays of each month at 7:00 pm. Please feel to join our meetings and share any ideas you may have. You may also submit your ideas in writing in the mail slot on the Auxiliary door. Auxiliary #3261 has new officers that have graciously stepped up this year to take an office. I am very proud of them. Nominations for auxiliary officers are done during our second Tuesday meeting in 

April each year if anyone is interested in running for an officer seat in the future. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me in person at the Eagles, or at: I will be happy to  help my Eagle Sisters.
