About

Meet the Officers


Our Lodge operates with volunteers who run special projects and events. Officers are nominated for their positions and voted on by our membership. Some positions are appointed by the Exalted Ruler. Committees are chosen by both appointment and member request to be involved. For more information from any Officer or Committee, follow the appropriate links to contact us by phone, email, or social media.

Who Are the Elks?

The National Order spends more than $80,000,000 every year for benevolent, educational and patriotic community-minded programs to benefit such causes as special needs children, Elks National Foundation scholarships, scouting, athletics, veterans' works, a national "Hoop Shoot" free-throw contest involving more than 3 million children, physical and occupational therapy programs and patriotic programs.

The youth of our country have always been important to the Order. It is for this reason the Elks Drug Awareness Education Program was launched to warn primary grade students and their parents of the dangers in drug use. Additionally, every lodge observes June 14th as Flag Day, a tradition which the Elks began in 1907 and was later adopted by the Congress as an official observance.

The Order is a non-political, non-sectarian and strictly American fraternity. Proposal for membership in the Order is only by invitation of a member in good standing. To be accepted as a member, one must be an American citizen, believe in God, be of good moral character and be at least 21 years old.

For more information on what we do, or to join our Lodge, stop by anytime! You can also get in touch with us through one of our contact forms or reach out to any of our officers. Our members are friendly and gracious and will be happy to help answer your questions and direct you to the right resources.
