    We accomplish charitable objectives and fund projects that improve the quality of life in our local Elks communities, and in turn the Elks community as a whole.

   We are the premier charitable and patriotic organization in the United States. With nearly, 800,000 Members working towards this greater goal, no wonder why the Elks are referred to as the Best People On Earth.

   The Order spends more than $80,000,000 every year for benevolent, educational and patriotic community-minded programs in such fields as benefitting special needs children, sponsoring Elks National Foundation scholarships, scouting, athletic teams, veterans' works, a national "Hoop Shoot" free-throw contest involving more than 3 million children, physical and occupational therapy programs and patriotic programs.

   The youth of our country have always been important to the Order. It is for this reason the Elks Drug Awareness Education Program was launched to warn primary grade students and their parents of the dangers in drug use. Additionally, every lodge observes June 14th as Flag Day, a tradition which the Elks began in 1907 and was later adopted by the Congress as an official observance.

    We pledge never to forget our Veterans. Our programs help special needs children, and our nation’s youth with scholarships and drug prevention programs.

   We offer countless opportunities for social activities and new friendships.

   Why not Join us in service to your community!

    The Elks National Memorial is a tribute to the bravery, loyalty and dedication of the thousands of Elks who have fought and died for our country. It has been described as one of the most magnificent war memorials in the world, but with its monumental architecture and priceless art, the Memorial is more a symbol of peace and of the patriotism of the members of the Elks fraternity.

      A monument in the truest sense, the Elks National 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 its 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.

Members All,

     I hope that this message finds our members staying healthy and safe!. It’s hard to believe that another Elks year is coming to an end and a new year is about to commence.
     We all know that 2020 was an extremely challenging year for our Lodge and especially our members. As the saying goes “Hope Springs Eternal” and I for one believe that 2021 will be a better and more prosperous year for our Lodge and most importantly our members,
     Things are slowly opening and vaccinations against the Covid-19 virus are picking up the pace. We are moving towards the new normal, whatever that may be.
     One of the first steps towards normalcy, was our annual St. Patrick’s Day dinner. The meal was fantastic and plentiful, the beer was green, the music made us all feel Irish for a day.
     I would like to give a special thank you to all the members and volunteers who prepped for the meal, Bill LeMere and Mary Beth for cooking the meal, Tom and Peggy Mirabile, Laura O’Connor and Linda Amaral for running meals and take-outs upstairs to the Members Lounge and for just helping out in so many ways.
     Also, thank you to Randy Hodge, Mike Amaral and Sharon McGonnigal for literally jumping into the heat of the kitchen to handle the final rush of orders! It was a great day for our Lodge as we sold close to 300 meals.
     Also, I would like to thank PER Florence Cadillic for an extremely successful calendar fundraiser. A special thanks goes out to Members Wayne Lee, Diane Prescott, Paul Grenier, Tony Freitas and Dawn Craig for being the top calendar sellers!
     I want to sincerely thank the outgoing 2020-21 officers who served our Lodge and its Members admirably under the most difficult conditions.
     Congratulations and good luck to the 2021-22 incoming officers. Every Exalted Ruler has a goal for their year and my goal for my year is to bring back Bingo to our Lodge. More details to follow in the coming months.
     Looking ahead into May, the annual Markey’s Motorcycle Ride will be held on May23rd. Check your bulletin for more details.
     In closing, I would like to wish everyone a Happy Easter and please take care of your bartenders and waitstaff who are working hard to make yourvisit to the Lodge a pleasant one.

     Fraternally yours, Shawn O’Connor – Exalted Ruler
