Hayden Eagle Trophy's/ about who they are

Last Friday February 29th, 2014 the Hayden Eagles Aerie 4080 celebrated their 30th Anniversary. These are some of the past Convention trophy’s that were won. The Fraternal Order of Eagles is an international non-profit organization uniting fraternally in the spirit of liberty, truth, justice, and equality, to make human life more desirable by lessening its ills and promoting peace, prosperity, gladness and hope.The F.O.E. was founded in February, 1898 by six theatre owners gathered in a Seattle shipyard to discuss a musician’s strike. After addressing the matter, they agreed to “bury the hatchet” and form “The Order of Good Things.” As numbers grew, members selected the Bald Eagle as the official emblem and changed the name to “The Fraternal Order of Eagles.” The women’s auxiliary traces its roots to 1927. Their major accomplishments include: Founded Mother’s Day, Served as driving force in founding Social Security Program, Helped end job discrimination based on age with the “Jobs After 40” Program, Distributed Ten Commandments monoliths and fought to keep the Commandments in public places.
