Eagle Brothers,

ALVA Aerie and Auxiliary #871 will be having their 30h Annual Heart Walk, honoring Bubba Merker. The date will be April 21, 2024. Bubba Merker was a past president of ALVA Aerie #871. He passed away at a young age of a massive heart attack. Since then we had held this walk to honor him.

Please consider supporting this worthy event. All proceeds go to the Grand Aerie earmarked for the Max Baer Heart Fund.

Checks should be made out to ALVA Aerie #871. Mailing address Don Jenkins, 4816 Poplar Drive, Alexandria, VA 22310-1356
