History of Davison Eagles Aerie 3589

The City of Flags Aerie 3589 is more commonly known as the “Davison Eagles”. In nature, an aerie is the lofty nest of any bird of prey, such as an eagle or a hawk. Therefore in the Fraternal Order of Eagles, the word Aerie serves as the name of the building in which the group regularly meets and in which it hosts events. Brother Robert Myers is credited as having been responsible for organizing the Davison Eagles in November 1974 and obtaining our Aerie Charter through the Grand Aerie that December. At that time there was 104 members; today membership in over 800. If you combine that with the Ladies Auxiliary, membership in the Davison Eagles is in excess of 1,300 members.

Proud Benefactor

The Davison Eagles have been host to a great number of events not only benefiting charitable organizations but also families and individuals in need throughout our community since it was established in 1974. Each year the Davison Eagles host dozens of fundraisers to benefit others. This is done through concerts, banquets, riding events, band performances, gaming events and sporting events. We also support other businesses and community organizations with their fundraising efforts by facilitating their events. Although our motto is “People helping People” for the Davison Eagles it’s more about being a good neighbor.
