Our mission statement sums up the reasons why our members join, why they participate and thrive in their local aeries and auxiliaries.
The Fraternal Order of Eagles, an international non-profit organization, unites fraternally in the spirit of liberty, truth, justice, and equality, to make human life more desirable by lessening its ills, and by promoting peace, prosperity, gladness and hope.
If you want to make a difference in your life and the lives of those in your community start with an organization that lives and breathes service to its country.
With members in more than 1,700 local aeries and auxiliaries in the United States and Canada you are never far from a friend. Our members are truly a family of brothers and sisters that work hard to better our communities and world. In times of joy and in times of sorrow your Eagle family is always there for you. Whether our time is spent at a meeting, enjoying a social room or washing dishes after a successful charity dinner, Eagle members carry a sense of pride knowing that their time is well spent.
For more than 100 years the Fraternal Order of Eagles has continually worked to make the world a better place to live. We speak with pride of our past accomplishments and look forward to assisting those that cannot assist themselves. All of our members are united to preserve liberty, insist on truth, demand justice and promote equality. We do things for home, for country and for God.
Here in Rumford we have many activities that you may be interested in.
