Just curious: why look for "dark or sinister info" on people or groups that are benevolent in nature? I guess I'll never understand.
If you want info on the Eagles, this is their website:
According to the site, 7 US Presidents have been Eagles:

my motive is quite simple actually. I have been a member for about 3 years. with the wealth of knowledge found here on other social clubs & the like I figured I might find someone knowledgeable about them. just doing a background check if you never know what groups they may have been affiliated with in the past or what misdeeds may have taken place. their website is only going to point out the good, why would they advertise a seedy past?

I am an Eagles member. The group is not some kind of secret society that sacrifices babies at every meeting. The organization was built to allow people who share the same interests to congregate and contribute to charities, community events, people in need, and local projects. Some of their accomplishments are: The creation of Mother's Day, Worker's Compensation Laws, Social Security Laws, and work after 40 legislation. The local Aerie is not a cult, or anything evil. We help people. One of our motto's is "People Helping People."

Stop trying to dig up dirt on every other person, or organization, and take time out to realize that your malicious questions resmble some we've seen in the past. Does the year 1692, and Salem, Mass. ring a bell?

well about the Eagles...

...My mother has two brothers (one is a member of the Masonic Lodge while the other is a member of the Eagles). As far as what goes on at the Eagles, he plays pool with friends. That's about the extent that I got out of it, is that it is people that have common interests getting together and hanging out. I don't see anything sinister about that, or my uncle...

the carcase, was fox eaten,,
the claws were,, so perfeclty suited ,,for killing,and eating,,survival,,
,that it must
make it extremely hard for the Eagle too stay,,grounded,,

It's mate, watched from shore,, upon a cragy outcrop,,
it was sad,,
just an Eagle experience.

I have an interview with local officers of the FOE for my potential membership. I'll report later on the status of that.

I was initiated a couple of months after my interview (3 years now). The ritual itself is very benign - be a good citizen, be a reliable friend, life is short - help others while you can. That sort of thing.

My lodge has lots of veterans, and lots of chain-smokers, which has been a problem for non-smoking me. Recently the lodge banned all smoking in the meeting hall/social hall, which helps. Just a door separates this non-smoking area from the smoke-filled bar and game room.

FOE has endowments for a number of charities dedicated to various disease-related research endeavors. FOE donated $40 million to the University of Iowa for their Cancer Research facility.

Its hard for me to go to the meetings, given the relatively late hour of the meeting plus my home/family/work commitments. I often travel for work, so its nice to have a Lodge nearby when I travel for an extended period to give me a place to go and do and meet people in a relatively wholesome environment (minus smoking).
