What does Membership in the Elks offer you?
The Elks is the Nation’s oldest fraternal organization. Elks are uniquely American, and we link the destiny of our Order to the destiny of our Nation. There are over 1,000 Elks Lodges throughout the United States. As an Elk, you are always welcome in any Lodge anywhere. (There is also an Order of Elks in Canada… they are independent of us, but — just like the warm relations that the United States and Canada enjoy — so too do the Elks Lodges in America and Canada on a very cordial footing.)
Members have complete access to our facilities, including the Lodge, ballroom with huge dance floor, and our traditional English Pub. If you are having an event and would like to use the Lodge and facilities, just contact our office. We are a big lodge with several space options available depending on the size of your event.
Elks are patriotic! We have routine tributes during our events that honor our country and our flag. We have lots of activities that keep you as busy as you want to be.
Membership in our Order also gets you involved in Charitable works. Elks focus on two groups: Young people and Veterans. And we are honored to help these two groups! We also involve ourselves in community charitable works. We support local charities and individuals who need a little help.
Now that you know, why don’t you join?!? We would love to give you a tour of the Lodge, talk to you more about our activities, and get you an application for membership. All you have to do is contact us 352-376-7351 or Email Us and we will get the process started!!
You must be sponsored by a member of the Elks Lodge and reside in the jurisdiction of the Lodge you wish to join.
After initiation as an Elk, you can take part in all meetings and social functions of the Lodge.
