Eagle Riders Group Information
The Eagle Riders offer members with an interest in motorcycle riding an opportunity to organize and put together charitable events while doing what they love. Each year, Eagle Riders groups across the United States and Canada raise money through Poker Run events and other motorcycle activities that help unite community members and build a passion and appreciation for our surrounding landscapes.
The Van Buren Eagle Riders help the Aerie as well as the MDA Camp Cavell for kids near Lexington, MI, Toys for Tots , and the Wounded Warriors Project.
The Riders signature project is the annual HOG roast which takes place in September. The Events page will have details as we get close to the date.
Eagle Rider meetings are held on the second Thursday of each month at 6:30 pm. in the social room or the Pavilion, weather permitting.
It is not necessary to have a motorcycle to join. We passed a motion to let all previous members who have let the membership lapse rejoin for the annual fee of $10.00.
All Riders shall be in good standing in the Van Buren Aerie or the Ladies Auxiliary.
Retired Eagles Activity Club Information
R.E.A.C. (Retired Eagles Activities Club) offers members in retirement a chance to gather and fill their days with various activities and charitable efforts, making their golden years shine even brighter.
ALL candidates shall be in good standing in Van Buren Men's Aerie or Ladies Auxiliary.
The Van Buren Eagles REAC welcomes all new members. We have social events every third Tuesday of the month. The events are voted on by the members of our group; we would love to hear your ideas on new places to visit. Our annual events are the June and September (first Tuesday) meetings. Grilled hotdogs are supplied and members bring their favorite dish to share.
Our December meeting is a Christmas dinner meeting with the dinner supplied by REAC for members' enjoyment.
Guests are always welcome to come to a meeting to see what we are about.

Eagle Honor Quilters Group
The Eagle Honor Quilters is a group, led by Aerie member Michelle Gueli, dedicated to creating quilts for all Van Buren Eagles military personnel who have served or are currently serving our country.
Want to help honor our Van Buren Eagles #3996 Military Personnel?
Join the Eagle Honor Quilters and learn how to quilt!
Here's a great way to honor our military... QUILTING!
What? You don't know how to quilt? Well, join our group and Michelle will teach you how to quilt, step-by-step, when we meet on the second and fourth Monday nights of the month.
You will be in the company of others who are beginners, so come join the fun, learn a new craft, and share in the friendship of a newly formed social group. We also welcome veteran quilters!
In the process of learning, you will create, make, donate, and dedicate quilts to our very own Eagle members who have given service to our country.
Quilters/students must be Aerie or Auxiliary members (or spouses of members).
