 Mission Statement

    To inculcate the principles of Charity, Justice, Brotherly Love and Fidelity; to recognize a belief in God; to promote the welfare and enhance the happiness of its Members; to quicken the spirit of American patriotism; to cultivate good fellowship; to perpetuate itself as a fraternal organization, and to provide for its government, the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks of the United States of America will serve the people and communities through benevolent programs, demonstrating that Elks Care — Elks Share.”


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.

With our AC working A+, I would like to suggest that anyone sensitive to cooler temperatures please consider keeping an extra sweater with you in your car should you need it. The thermostat is pre-set, and cannot be adjusted to suit everyone. Thank you for your understanding.

   I represented our lodge at the State Convention for business meetings and voting. Thank you to all of the delegates, alternates and members that attended this Convention. We had 14 rooms booked, a good time was had by all!Father's Day Breakfast went very well. Thank you to the House Committee and Cliff for a great job.Proceeds went to ENF to meet our per capita with the Grand Lodge so we can continue to apply for the Grants used to benefit our Seniors, Veterans, Youth, and Middleboro High School's Futures Program.

   This month we will continue our "fix it" projects throughout the lodge. If anyone is interested in helping, give a shout! Off to Indianapolis for the Elks National Convention!

   The lodge will be closed on the 4th of July. Happy Independence Day! Enjoy the day with family and friends.

How the Elks Began

It All Began With the Jolly Corks. Starting as as a group of actors and entertainers bent on having fun AND avoiding a New York Excise tax in 1867 (Sundays were the ‘dry’ day), this convivial group called themselves the Jolly Corks (for a clever trick with corks they performed on the uninitiated to win rounds of drinks). That same year as membership grew, some members saw the vision to become more helpful in the community. Alas, two feuding factions split the group over different philosophies. Fortunately, the latter faction moved forward with their new ideals and in February of 1868, the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks was chartered–and with a great new spirit and direction, began to help Veterans, Scouting, Scholarships and more–wherever Charity, Justice and Brotherly Love were needed!
