To include 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 Benevolen and Protective Order of Elks of the United States of America will serve the people and communities through benevolent programs, demonstrating that Elks Care and Elks Share.
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, meet the needs of today’s veterans, and improve the quality of life.

Many Americans proudly fly the U.S. flag at their homes and places of work, but what do you do with it when it's old and ratty and you're ready for a new one? Don't just throw it in the trash like any other old item — that's considered disrespectful. The U.S. flag is considered such a sacred symbol that burning it in an undignified manner constitutes desecration.
If you have an American flag that is no longer serviceable and is tattered, torn, or faded, please bring your flag to the Lodge. We have a bin located in the foyer by the front door where we will be collecting flags needing retirement so that we may give them proper cremation. Respectfully retiring the American flag is a great way to show our appreciation of the ‘Stars and Stripes’ and all it stands for.
Thank you and God Bless America!
