About Us

The Fraternal Order of Eagles #1047 was founded in Gilberts,  Illinois  in 2006. Prior to 2006, we were located in Elgin, Illinois opening in 1904. We are a private social club, that requires a yearly membership fee. We rely on our membership volunteers to make our club a success. We donate yearly to the following charities:  Shop with a Cop, Special Olympics, and our Grand Aerie Charities. We have Dinner/Dances for our Members for: New Year's Eve, Valentine's Day, & St. Patrick's Day. We have our Annual Family Picnic in July, our Annual Golf Outing in September, and Oktoberfest in October. Some other events include Chili Cook-Off, Kentucky Derby Race and Superbowl Party,  Member Christmas Party-Adults, Kids Christmas Party which is free and kids under 12 receive a gift from Santa and Lunch our Halloween Party and Bus-trips to see the Cubs.

We have a great area outside to sit and relax. Bring your horseshoes or bags.
