The Fraternal Order of Eagles is an international non-profit organization that 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.
As part of that mission, the local branch will be hosting the state F.O.E. Angel Flight Fundraiser to benefit Arkansas Children’s Hospital. Angel Flight is equipped with state of the art medical equipment and provides children the ability to be transported safely, quickly, and efficiently whether or not the family has the ability to pay.
Also, F.O.E. #4259 will be celebrating their 25th “Silver” Anniversary and Member Appreciation Day. The events will take place on Saturday, September 12, from 8 a.m. – 10 p.m. The event will include a Car & Motorcycle Show, BBQ cookoff, horseshoe tournament, horse races, adult and kids games, music all day, and a fireworks display that night.
