Welcome !

On behalf of the members of the Middleboro Lodge of Elks I welcome you. We are a vital link in the fraternal chain of Lodges of the Benevolent & Protective Order of Elks, U.S.A. Our Lodge was Chartered by the Grand Lodge in 1912. We are located at 24 High Street in the heart of Middleboro, Massachusetts, halfway between Boston and Cape Cod. The Lodge is a also one of the nine Lodges of the Massachusetts South District, and the Massachusetts State Elks Association.

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.

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!
