The Eagles was closed due to non-conformance with Grand, State, and Aerie by-laws. Basically, there were issues within the club (there have always been issues and always will be) that were not dealt with appropriately by the officers. Some members contacted Grand for a resolution, investigations were done and temporary closure was the end result.

Finally! It sure took long enough. I'm liking this Grand Worthy Aerie Agent Mike Matheson. Wow, where are all the old geezers going to go now? What's Kautzman going to do now?, I could go on, and on. I tried to do something about the discrimination in that place a few years ago and all I got was fired. Way to go, whoever got it this far. Cheers, here to you!

It's a good thing, maybe now they can restructure the club to benefit all age groups, instead of favoring particular groups and install more open minded thinking. With the previous mentioned areas addressed, the club could make a considerable increase in revenue and membership leading to a significant raise in donations and programs to help the less fortunate. And keep in mind people of Orting, you don't need a club to contribute to the needy. Tabular rasa, clean slate.

However, in light of these past conflicts, perhaps now is a good time to welcome women to step up and join the Aerie and become part of the Aerie officers and/or Trustees. Perhaps the ACLU can help facilitate such a change. In the meantime, consider helping by volunteering and consider holding office.

I am hoping that the invitations for the meetings are sent to all Aerie members so that all concerned are able to vote. As far as the ACLU is concerned, and I have no real comment on this, but I do know that the ACLU would be far more interested in the fact that this particular Aerie does not allow females to belong to the Aerie; and, therefore, women are not allowed to vote on the Aerie floor. Many clubs in Washington welcome women to the Aerie, not this club. However, in light of these pas

Please re-read the comment from the Grand Aerie. Unfortunetly, there is an element of hysteria in the article written earlier, skewing the facts for political and/or personal gain. Calm and reason will be key to what is going to keep the club open. If you are serious about helping, consider holding office. There are always two sides to any story. I would ask that everyone try and remain open minded and consider all facts before drawing conclusions. I am hoping that the invitations for the

As much as I hate to see the Eagles close for a short period of time, I would like to comment that there are two sides to every story. Without going into details, a closure of this nature is not taken lightly by the Grand Aerie. It was done for a variety of reasons and as a member of the Orting Eagles I support the decision and actions of Mike, the state agent in charge and the Grand Aerie

#1 Mike Matthias, State Agent, left a key for the Auxiliary President to distribute the Christmas Baskets.

#2 We don’t host a Christmas Dinner the club is traditionally closed for Christmas as is posted in the newsletter. See http://eagles.orting.com/newsletters/dec2010.pdf

#3 Bride without a venue. Really. During the holiday season hall rentals go quickly and people book far in advance.The hall reatal is not listed on the calendar. I could go on with more examples.
