Hello, Elks.
Here we are in the dog days of summer. August is the time when we are slowing down from the hectic days of spring planting, graduation parties, July festivities & summer vacations and beginning to think about what we will be doing for the fall.

Elkdom

elksElks Lodges bring so much more to their communities than just a building, golf course or pool. They are places where neighbors come together, families share meals, and children grow up.

Elks invest in their communities through programs that help children grow up healthy and drug-free, by undertaking projects that address unmet need, and by honoring the service and sacrifice of our veterans.

Volunteers

volunteerOur lodge could not survive without volunteers! If you have been wanting to volunteer at the Lodge and have not found the right job or have not been contacted, the aim this year is get as many new members involved with the lodge and to help give some relief to those that have been doing the same jobs for so many years. To volunteer contact the Office.

Become an Organ Donor: Transplantation is one of the most remarkable success stories in the history of medicine. But despite continuing advances in medicine and technology, the need for organs and tissue is vastly greater than the number available for transplantation. Transplantation gives hope to thousands of people with organ failure and provides many others with active and renewed lives. To learn more, please visit Donate Life America.
