Fraternal Order of Eagles Grand Madam President Celebrates Mother's Day
Date:4/23/2009

National group instrumental in establishing day to honor mom

GROVE CITY, Ohio, April 23 /PRNewswire/ -- Mother's Day is a special anniversary for the Fraternal Order of Eagles (http://www.FOE.com) and Grand Madam President Pat Durham. The step-mother and grandmother understands the juggling act that mothers carry out everyday. She also knows that honoring those who give to others is an Eagles tradition.

The second Sunday in May was designated Mother's Day by President Woodrow Wilson on May 10, 1914, although the call for a national day to honor mothers had been asked for in 1904 by Frank Hering, a Past Eagles Grand Worthy President. The group's members worked with Mother's Day advocate Anna Jarvis to encourage adoption of a special day for all mothers across the nation. Members contacted their congressmen and made public statements to support the cause.

"The spirit that led that cause nearly 100 years ago is still present today," said Durham. "I've been on the road every week since August of 2008 visiting with moms who are also active Eagles. The passion for helping families and the communities they live in is still alive."

Durham is a modern day mother, a working mom with a mixed family from her marriage to a widower with three young boys. She has a new appreciation for the mothers / FOE members who she has met on her year long journey.

"Having children around and watching them grow has been special, but not always easy," said Durham. "I can identify with today's mothers who have to manage a job, take care of their children and a house and all of the tasks that come with each. That's why I'm proud that the Fraternal Order of Eagles made the first effort to honor all mothers."
