The FOE was founded in February, 1898, by six theatre owners who gathered in a Seattle shipyard to discuss a musician's strike. After addressing the matter, they agreed to “bury the hatchet” and form “The Order of Good Things.” As numbers grew, members selected the Bald Eagle as the official emblem and changed the name to the “Fraternal Order of Eagles.”
Anyone interested in getting involved in the FOE can contact Dolback at 597-3662 or Fleury said those who want a real idea of what goes on should stop by one of the meetings.
“Come in as a guest, see, meet and talk to some of the people working in this organization,”“ Fleury said. “I really enjoy it, I get so many opportunities to meet with different people and see different faces and we work to make a difference and help people.”
