Between activities in the Ballroom, catered events in the Dining Room, billiards and ping pong in the Rec Room, fun at the pool, and live entertainment in our spacious lounge, there's always something going on at the Mount Airy Lodge.


2nd and 4th Thursdays at 7:00 PM

Meetings are held the 2nd and 4th Thursdays except July and August when we meet on the 2nd Thursday only. Meetings are held in the ballroom at 7:00 PM.

Elks Creed

Regional hoop shoot will be in Maryland, on March 10. Please keep Mark Alderman in your prayers as he makes this trip and assist in hosting this great event. There are 6 NC contestants that are touted to compete and hopefully advance to the National finals in Chicago in April. Thanks again to Mark for all you do for Hoop Shoot event and for the NC kids!

What is the Elks National “Hoop Shoot” Program?

The Elks “Hoop Shoot” Free Throw Contest is the largest most visible of the many youth activities sponsored by Elks lodges. Over 3,000,000 boys and girls ages 8-13 will participate this year. The Elks “Hoop Shoot” has served to highlight the Elks commitment to America’s youth. From the millions of youngsters who participate and advance through the local, district, state and regional competition, six national champions are named – one boy and one girl in each of the three categories: ages 8-9, 10-11 and 12-13. The winners each receive a trophy and their names are inscribed on a plaque at the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame in Springfield, Massachusetts. Parents accompany contestants throughout the competition. The parents of finalists at the state, regional, and national levels attend the competition as guests of the Elks.

“Hoop Shoot” is a registered trademark of the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks of the United States of America.

Donation of Picnic Shelter to Camp Raven Knob Boy Scout Reservation

group photo at picnic shelter

The Mt. Airy Elks Past Exalted Ruler Association used the proceeds from a fundraiser earlier this year to fund a new picnic shelter at Camp Raven Knob Boy Scout Reservation. Construction was completed on December 30, 2017 in time for the scouts to use it during their Klondike Jamboree in January.

With volunteer labor (and expertise!) from our members and generous materials donations from area businesses, Mt. Airy Elks Lodge is proud to invest in the future of our community by helping to support the Boy Scouts of America.

Here's a photo album of the work as it progressed.
