Our History

Additional Information


In the 1958 - 1959 District Directory; A.E.M. Post 4287 was listed with the address of Route 15 - A South, Azalea Park, Orlando, FL In 1959, A.E.M. Post 4287 moved to it's new Post Home on South Goldenrod Road. Today that site is the home of the F.O.E. (Fraternal Order of Eagles), or the Eagles Club.

In 1969 Conway Memorial Post 7985 decided that it could not keep going. Rather than give up their Post Home to the Department of Florida, they merged with A.E.M. Post 4287. They sold their Post Home and gave the money and Charter to A.E.M. Post 4287. Usually when two Posts merge, you use both names. Instead they asked that Post 4287 use their starting date of July 27, 1946 and pick up their membership. The Commander of Post 7985 at that time was John A. Deeney and A.E.M. Post 4287 Commander was Joe Tyminski.

In 1969, Post 4287 purchased approximately one acre from the Golden Acres. This property at 3500 South Goldenrod Road, is the current location of the Post. Construction of the Post Home began in 1970 and was completed in 1973. A vast majority of the construction work was conducted by members of the Post.

There are many warm and wonderful memories of the dances, parties, and dinners held at this location. As the years went by, the members aged and the amount of volunteers diminished to the point where the events became few and far between. The current staff of Officers and the Members are working hard to re-establish this atmosphere and we would enjoy you being a part of it all.
