Elks are community.  No matter where you go in the USA, an Elks Lodge is right around the corner. With more than 850,000 members and 2,000 Lodges nationwide, Elks are providing charitable services that help build stronger communities.

Elks 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.

Scholarship Committee News

  The Scholarship Committee recently had the good fortune to award $5000 to some very deserving young men and women, and would like to congratulate the following group on their awards from the Middleboro Elks Local Lodge Scholarship Fund. These funds are raised through events like the Pig Roast, Queen of Hearts and your generous donations.

  Additonally, have you ever wondered what the Elks National Foundation (ENF) does with that $10 that the Secretary puts on your bill every year? Or where the money goes that Laurie and her team raise through those breakfasts they do?   WELL CHECK THIS OUT, BECAUSE THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS TO IT!!

 This year, ENF scholarship programs have returned your donations and then some to the local youth in our Community. The following young men and women have received awards from the Most Valuable Student and Legacy Scholarship programs for a total return of $8000 on your investment.  

  The names of the winners are available in this month’s Lodge Bulletin.

July Calendar


 In May, we mailed 18 combat care packages to two units with men & women in Afghanistan in need of special goods: the Army, 10th Sustainment Brigade Special Troops Bn / 10th Mountain Division and the Marines, 3rd Marine Aircraft Wing / Marine Aviation Logistics Squadron 70! Thanks to our Grants Team: Kalee Dutra, Sue Lynch, Laurie LeFebvre & Mike Hooley assisted by additional packers from the lounge day of packing: Tommy Beach, Doug Bates, Fred Ferrell, and Doreen & Earl Kronmes! All the December Fund Raising and Freedom Grant work to pay for and send approximately 60 Care Packages for our Combat Troops in Afghanistan has been completed - you should be proud of your Lodge!

   We are looking to raise more money in the Lounge in July - a small donation of $10 each enabled us to fill approximately 60 boxes with needed goods. Letters of appreciation are posted in the front lobby postings!
