Grand Madam President of the Ladies Auxiliary to the Fraternal Order of Eagles, Stephanie Smith, will visit Maple City Auxiliary No. 711, 151 Cline St., Norwalk on Sunday. Norwalk is the home of Ohio State Madam President Mary Hornsby. The Norwalk Auxiliary is hosting the visit for members from the Northwest Zone. Ohio is No. 1 in membership for the ladies and men and has the record number of Aeries for the whole United States.
Stephanie "Stephie" Smith joined Rock Island Auxiliary No. 956 in March 1969. In 1985, she transferred her membership to Silvis Auxiliary No. 1839. She was introduced to the Eagles prior to her initiation by her future husband when he asked her to help cook a chicken dinner for the cancer fund. When she saw how the Eagles worked to help others, she became and still is a true Eagle.
