The Odessa Record -

Letter to the Editor: Eddy Kern remembered as last of local Eagles

 


With the passing of Edwin C. Kern, I remember him as being the last member of the Odessa Eagles Aerie 3069, which formed on October 1, 1950 and lasted until it consolidated with the Spokane Eagles Aerie 2 on March 15, 1960. He was the Secretary for the Aerie. Many years back, Joanne and I went over to his home and he was really proud to show us his gold card and a state convention book he had saved. He wanted to know all about what the Eagles were doing at the present time. I called him on his 100th birthday to wish him a great day and just to remind him, “Once an Eagle, always an Eagle.”

Chuck Wood,

Washington State Home Chairman and Eagle Historian for our Museum
