The Elk River Eagles Club has traced its roots back to 1965, when a group of young men banded together in the offices of a John Deere dealership to provide a variety of services to the local community, according to the Elk River Star News.
Although the club is known today as the Elk River Aerie No. 3264 of the Fraternal Order of Eagles and doesn't have vintage John Deere tractors as a backdrop, the group still performs a variety of functions in the community, the organization's website reported.
The Elk River Eagles has 150 members and is looking to expand in an effort to help the local community and to provide residents with a place to go for special events, including Minnesota Vikings games, according to the Star News.
"It would be great to get more members involved, just to help out more in the community," Michelle Kliber, the club’s chaplain, told the news source.
The club hosts a variety of events ranging from tractor pulls, Oktoberfest celebrations and other parties that are associated with regional and national holidays, the Star News reported.
