Who are we?

Our Founders

Jolly Corks

The faults of our members we write upon the sand, their virtues on the tablets of love and memoryThe ELKS Motto

The Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks (BPOE), also known as the Elks Lodge, is an American fraternal order or social club founded in 1868.

Today there are more than 2,000 Lodges throughout the United States and 850,000 members.

Elks Lodges bring so much more to their communities than just a building. They are places where neighbours 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 honouring the service and sacrifice of our veterans.
