F.O.E Auxiliary #531, located in Beatrice, NE, was established on February 15, 1951. Currently we have 222 members with 11 pending applicants. Several fundraisers are held throughout the year to raise money for local and state charities.
Starting in September and running through March, Auxiliary members host a Soup Supper the second Thursday of the month. Our soup suppers feature all you can eat soup with three different choices or a bowl of soup with a sandwich. Proceeds raised during our soup suppers have gone towards our local charities such as our Community Food Pantry, Mother-to-Mother Ministry, Warren’s Table and the Beatrice Backpack program.
Other events are held throughout the year in addition to our soup suppers, such has a Halloween Party, Ugly Sweater Contest in December and a Shuffle Board Crawl. One of our most popular event is the Scavenger Hunt we hold in April. Teams of 4-6 people have two hours to race across town hunting for various items and fulfilling tasks. Prizes are awarded to the top teams; proceeds raised during this event are donated to the State Charity. This year our event will be held on April 21, 2018 – please consider joining us!
