About the event

The Order of Elks is an organization of American citizens who inculcate the principles of Charity, Justice,  Brotherly Love and Fidelity; and promote the welfare and enhance the happiness of their fellow members;  and quicken the spirit of American patriotism.  

The Order is not concerned with one’s political affiliations, and it does not permit either religion or  politics to be injected into, or to have any affect upon its fraternal deliberations, national or local.  

It lures no member to its doors by any promised material benefits which might appeal to their self interest.  It pledges no support to the furtherance of personal ambitions. It has no insurance feature to appeal to  one's sense of economy. It is beneficent, not merely benevolent, and believes that doing good is better  than merely being good. It teaches that it is nobler to serve than to be served; that laughter is better than  tears; a kind word more potent than a frown; and that life is all the sweeter for a song.  

The Order of Elks is best served through the existence of informed members concerned with just what a  member receives when they join the Lodge. Members must be told of the principles of the order, the  activities and facilities it has to offer, its programs and objectives, and especially of its many benevolence.  Through indoctrination we want every Elk to be so knowledgeable of their membership that they will not  only take part in the workings of their Lodge, but will also cherish it and keep it for as long as they live.
