We are having a PRE-SALE of brand new Vashon Eagles Hoodies and T-shirts! Designed by dedicated member Amy Drayer. We have multiple colors and sizes, and there is a Mid-weight Zip Hoodie in addition to the Heavyweight Pullover option pictured above. Order online or at the club by the end of the day November 1st to pre-order yours! You can go to our Store page on our website, or just click here: STORE
Orders will be placed on November 2nd and should be ready for pickup in 2-3 weeks. We will let you know when they are available.
For years, the Vashon Eagles has honored all who have served our country by providing a free meal to our veterans and this November 11th, we are pleased to be able to continue that tradition. As in the past, please see the bartender on duty to obtain a dinner ticket.
I cannot stress this enough; please register for or purchase a dinner ticket by Monday, November 8th to guarantee your dinner availability. Priority dinner service will be given to members who have obtained their dinner ticket in advance. Walk-ins on November 11 will be able to purchase dinner only if there is enough food to accommodate those who have pre-purchased/reserved their meal. All veterans are eligible for a free meal and their spouses and caregivers are eligible for a discounted dinner. All others are welcome to purchase a dinner ticket at full price and join us in our thanks and celebration of our service members. Dinner tickets will be available at the bar beginning on November 1st. I will post an update with details of the dinner on Sunday, October 31st. Veterans who are unable to come to the club may reserve their meal by phone. Please note that if you are a spouse, caregiver, or regular member, you must purchase your dinner ticket in-person. No phone-in reservations for dinners that must be purchased. In the meantime, I welcome your suggestions regarding what to serve! In the past it has typically been meatloaf and mashed potatoes and I am happy to continue that tradition, but if you'd like to change it up a bit, please let me know over the next few days!
We understand that many of our veterans are elderly or may have compromised immunity and so may not feel comfortable with in-person dining. I am currently looking for volunteers willing to give a brief moment of their time to deliver meals to any of our veterans who request this accommodation. If you would like to show your appreciation for their sacrifices by being available to deliver a veteran's meal, please let me or Megan know. Your help is valued and appreciated!

Yes! This Friday, October 29th from 5pm until sold out.
Mark Bouska will be braving the elements to smoke 3 of our 6 prime ribs and Jordan Cross will be in the kitchen, preparing our other 3 roasts in the oven. Accompanying our prime rib will be fingerling potatoes and farm-fresh green beans. Dinner will also come with a Caesar salad and pumpkin custard pie bars, prepared by yours truly. Dinner is 25.00 for the standard cut of meat and 30.00 for our generous Eagle cut.
I am really pleased to finally be able to offer you a prime rib night, as many of you have expressed a desire for one. It takes quite a few people to make a prime rib night happen and, as I hope you know, everyone involved- from the cooks to the servers -is a volunteer. It takes a concerted group effort to provide our prime rib night. We need people to shop for supplies, prep ingredients, prepare the roasts and sides, take the orders, serve, help bus tables, clean up afterwards, and wash dishes throughout the evening. Even in the best of times it can be difficult to find this many people willing to volunteer their time to help make events like prime rib night happen. The advent of Covid has made everything, from sourcing affordable ingredients to securing volunteers, exponentially more difficult. And so, to those of you who regularly donate your time and other resources to our club, I extend an enormous THANK YOU!!! We cannot do it without your help. If you'd like to see more events happening at our club please consider donating your time and expertise! Talk to me, Sabrina, or Megan about offering your valuable resources to help make our club even better! Together, we can do it!
Howdy, y'all! Look who stopped by to promote our raffle/fund-raiser!
As many of you may know, we were recently able to fix our leaky roof. Yeehaw!! We hired Ojeda's to do the work and they were quick and efficient. Funds to fix the roof were approved and allocated before the pandemic struck and were based on the cost of materials and labor at the time. As we are all aware, the pandemic disrupted supply chains as well as resulted in an increase in demand for building supplies, as many people found themselves at home with time on their hands to work on home-improvement projects. As a result, the cost of building materials has skyrocketed. The roof could not wait-out another wet season in the hopes that supply costs would be more reasonable next year, so the repair project went ahead, over-budget. Holding a raffle fund-raiser seemed like the way to go to help us to fill the gap between the originally approved amount to fix the roof and give our members a chance to win a super-sweet payout! Next time you stop in, buy a few tickets! The more people who play, the faster we reach our goal, and the sooner you get your chance to win $1,500.00!!
Thanks for stoppin' by, Dolly!
