Trustee's Message

Many things are changing at the lodge and in the social room. We are trying to get more activities that

will appeal to all of our members. The Aerie and Auxiliary are doing dinners and we are scheduling some

music in conjunction with these activities as well as having Karaoke on off Fridays as well.

We understand that Friday Karaoke is popular but it is also important to provide activities for as many

members as possible. I know that both the men and women need to have more help with activities if

they are to continue because we have a very few people doing the work and we don't want to burn our

hard workers out.


The Trustees would like to thank all the members that have been supporting the dinners and social room

to make our lodge a success. Thanks go out to all members that showed up last Saturday to help with the

kitchen clean up.  Several people worked for hours to bring order to the kitchen area and make it a lot

cleaner.  If you use the kitchen in the future, please clean up after yourself, and, if you have food left over

try to sell it to member, or dispose of it in a way that it will get used.  If the social room can use it fine, but

if not please don't store it in the fridge or the freezer to go to waste and make another thing someone else

will have to clean up and dispose of.


It was brought up at the last Aerie meeting that we should have a web site.  During the discussion the fact

that this type of communication should be handled through the office was discussed and Trustee John Bedini

has been working diligently on a new web site.  He had some proto-types for others that were present at the

kitchen clean up to view and it did look very impressive.  It has gone live so check it out at or Google at Hayden Lake Eagles will also get you there.


Please read your bulletin to find out activities planned for the upcoming month and enjoy our lodge and

social room.  Keep in mind it is your Aerie and Auxiliary.

From The Aerie Secretary's Desk 

The holidays are over and the new year is apon us. I would like to thank Barb for her many years of service to the Aerie and all of it's members. She has done so very much for Hayden Lake both in the old building and in the new one as well. If you still see her around here a great deal do not be surprised. Also would like to thank John Bedini on his hard work on the new Website he is building.

Whether we like it or not times are changing. Our membership is back up at 572 even though we have lost some priceless members this past year due to their passing away. We Can't afford to loose one of our Aerie members with dues renewal time. The Social Room is not doing what it was 3 or 4 years ago. This means that we are having to use our surplus funds to maintain the level we did then. It is not because of one issue except lack of member participation. This decline has been occurring the last 3-4 years by social room activity. As the Trustees and officers look for different ways to generate either in the Aerie or the RV area we need to realize that we must do our part. That means stop in and visit with other members in the Social Room, grab a burger on Fridays lunch or afternoon, come in and listen to the music or have dinner with us here. If you have not been here for Bingo on Saturdays you are missing out on having fun and helping out local charities. Just like Uncle Sam used to say, "WE NEED YOU". We will never all agree on how things should be done, but on this we must agree, we need each other to make sure this Aerie is around in future years. I will be sharing our financial position each month with you to let you know where we are at. Do you realize it takes about $18,000 a month to pay the bills here not including my stipend. That includes when we have equipment breakdowns and repairs. We need every single member to stop in and enjoy your Aerie.
