The Crookston Eagles Aerie 873 are knee-deep in banquet hall renovations during the Eagles’ temporary closure and Secretary Jake Fee told the Times they’re still holding hope that they’ll be able to host the 2020 Eagles District Convention in June.

Work currently being done in the banquet hall includes replacing the subfloors and adding in all-new wider maple floors, new wainscoting, new paint, new doors, and wall build-outs with stone and color-changing lights similar to the already-renovated stage.

They’ve also replaced ceiling tiles and removed the women’s bathroom exit to create a more uniform banquet room which will cater to weddings, fundraisers and other large events.
