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.

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.

Elks Veterans Memorial

And National Headquarters
Chicago, IL

  A monument in the truest sense, the Elks National Veterans Memorial was built in 1926 to honor Americans whose profound sacrifices for the nation can never be recognized by mere words. With its massive dome, heroic sculptures and intricately detailed friezes, the Memorial is a distinctively American interpretation of classical greatness.

  On this website, you can explore the Memorial without leaving your chair. You can read about the building's history or take a virtual tour. When you're ready to come and see the Memorial in person, you can plan your visit, too.



We now have close to 800 of us. We could really use some new people to help volunteer with the cooking of pizza on Tues, serving the Wednesday night dinner, Wings on Thurs, Kitchen help on Friday nights, The Friday Night Meat Raffle, Sat Night Queen of Hearts. It's time to see some new faces. These events happen with the help of volunteers. Do you have a few hours that you could spare to help out the lodge even if it's just once a month. It is YOUR Lodge after all, so keeping it alive is YOUR job, not just the job of a few Members.

Stop by the lodge and talk to Laurie LeFebvre.

REINSTATE NOW!!! Per the Middleboro By-Laws, Article X: Fees and Dues, Sec. 4, Para. 2: During the two (2) consecutive months of September and October of each year, the fee for reinstatement in this Lodge of a Member stricken from the rolls of this Lodge for non-payment of dues shall be one (1) dollar.



V.A. Hospital Wish List Update

 There is a certain satisfaction which comes from giving unselfishly so that others' lives might be happier. Here at the Bedford VA Hospital, contributions by donors have been invaluable in perpetuating the high quality of care to which our patients are entitled.

 With the structure of today's economy and increasing demands on time, it is especially important to remember the hospitalized Veterans at this facility. Information has been provided on the following pages regarding some of the special needs and interests of our patients.

 All monetary and tangible donations need to be coordinated in advance through the Voluntary Service Office. Tangible donations, in particular, need to be coordinated in advance.

  Starting January 1, 2012 we will NO LONGER accept used clothing.
