TCFC and FOE team up

Texas Crab Festival Charities and the Fraternal Order of Eagles Sandpiper #3719 Aerie have entered into an Agreement to ensure the preservation of Swedes Park to provide a lasting venue that Bolivar Residents can be proud of for years to come. Swedes Park & The Pavilion at Swedes Park is a growing venue hosting various Community events as well as the annual Texas Crab Festival. Swedes Park, owned by Texas Crab Festival Charities, is located at 1605/1609 High 87 in Crystal Beach, Texas.

Maintenance of the 53 acre park “is critical to the ongoing success of the annual Mother’s Day Weekend Texas Crab Festival,” said Tom Osten, President of Texas Crab Fest Charities (TCFC). Tom seized the opportunity to leave a legacy to the community and recognized the Fraternal Order of Eagles Sandpiper #3719 as the perfect partner to carry on this tradition.

Jim Denys, Worthy President of the Eagles Sandpiper #3719 Aerie has been named to the TCFC board as the Asset Administrator.

The local Eagles assembled a generous group of volunteers led by Director John Johnson to provide all ongoing Park upkeep, maintenance, promotion and rental. Jim said “several members have been mowing grass for more than a year, this just makes perfect sense for a community minded organization like the Eagles.”

Texas Crab Festival is operated by Texas Crab Festival Charities, a 501(c) 3 non profit corporation whose mission is to increase educational and career opportunities for Bolivar Peninsula residents of all ages and to support local organizations that further the goal of improving the lives of the residents of the Bolivar Peninsula.

About the Eagles, the Sandpiper #3719 Aerie at Crystal Beach established in 1976 now with over 1000 members is the largest in the State of Texas and joins the other 800,000 members from 1400 Aerie’s in the US and Canada with a motto “people helping people”.
