To be eligible for membership in the Fraternal Order of Eagles #1583, you must meet the following criteria:
You are a citizen of the United States or Canada
You are over the age of 21
You believe in a higher power
You must also be sponsored by two members of the Fraternal Order of Eagles Aerie or Auxiliary (depending on which one you're applying for. Consult with club staff or officers if you're unsure of the difference.)
You can pick up an application for membership at the club location, 106 River St. Boyne City, MI 49712. Ask for an application from the bartender or a club officer.
Fill out the application and drop it off at the club, along with the application fee (see membership fees for more details). Your application will first be processed through the interviewing committee and then read to the membership at a regular meeting for a first reading on the floor. At the next meeting, your application will be read on the floor, again, for the second time so that the attendees may vote on your potential membership.
If the vote is favorable, you are notified when to be present for Initiation.
After Initiation, you will pay your first annual membership dues with the bartender (see membership fees for more details), and you will officially be a Brother or Sister Eagle! As a member of the F.O.E. 1583, you are able and encouraged to attend club meetings, social functions, fundraisers, and club events!
